Area Measurement

When it comes to laying Artificial grass, it’s so important to follow the correct guidelines for the surface you intend to cover.

An artificial lawn really can look eye-catching and extremely appealing: the highlight of your outdoor space!

Before installing artificial grass, you will need to measure the area to calculate how much material you will need.

One of the most important things to remember when calculating your artificial grass requirements is to measure across the widest part of your lawn.

It is recommended to order slightly over your requirements to allow for size discrepancies and trimming joints.

You will also need to take into consideration how much joining and adhesive material is needed and how many joints you will need.

You should aim to cover the area with the minimum number of joins on the shortest lengths.

How to Measure the Area for Artificial Grass:

Example 1

1. For square and rectangular-shaped lawns, calculate the number of square feet by simply multiplying the width by the length. (length) x (width) = Total square feet.

Example 2

1. For round and oval shaped lawns you use the length of the two widest sections. Multiplying will give you the total number of square feet required.

How to Measure the Area for Artificial Grass:

Example 3

1. For angled or curved lawns to calculate how many square feet of artificial grass is needed, again, multiply the width and the widest point with the length at the longest point.

Example 4

1. For L shaped lawns we recommend you break up the lawn into sections and then add together the square feet required from each section.
