Measuring irregular shaped Lawns

Even unusual shaped lawns can be measured quite accurately by using the following method.

Draw the shape of your garden as accurately as you can on some paper. Divide the shape into as many rectangles as necessary to cover your sketch as shown in the diagram. Then measure the length x width of each triangle as described above. Add the area of all the rectangles together to get the total area of your garden.


  • Square Metres to square yards = Multiply by 1.2
  • Square yards to square Metres = Multiply by 0.84
  • Square feet to square yards = Multiply by 9


  • Double check your measurements.
  • Add at least 5% for waste.
