**How To Measure For Sod**

Unusual Shapes: Calculations can be made by sections and totaled. In this case
calculate and add together: area of triangle; area of rectangle; and one-

Area = (30 ft + 60 ft + 28 ft) x 10 = 1180 sq/ft

Irregular Shapes: Measure a long (L) axis of the area. At every 10 feet on the length line measure the width at right angles to the length line. Total all the widths and multiply by 10. This formula is within 5% accuracy. Area = (A₁A₂ + B₁B₂ + C₁C₂, etc.) x 10

Triangle: The area of a triangle is one-

H = 400 ft

L = 200 ft

Area: 200 ft x 400 ft = 40,000 sq/ft

Circle: The area of a circle is the radius (one-

R = 100 ft

Area = 3.14 x 100² ft = 31,400 sq/ft

Trapezoid: A trapezoid is a four-

H = 50 ft

A = 300 ft

B = 200 ft

Rectangle: The area of a rectangle is found by multiplying the length by the width. Area = lw

L = 100 ft

W = 50 ft

Area: 100 ft x 50 ft = 5000 sq/ft

Oval: The area of an oval is found by multiplying radius A and radius B and π(3.14) together. Area = πab

B = 50 ft

A = 20 ft

Area = 3.14 x 20 ft x 50 ft = 3140 sq/ft
