Measuring your Planned Lawn & Ordering Sod

measureLawn 001With a tape, measure the various areas of your planned lawn. Include these measurements on a sketch of the areas, with the length, width, and any irregular features. Multiply the length by the width to get the total square footage. When you order you can tell us how many square feet you need. If you need assistance please call so that we can help you get the correct amount.

How to measure the square footage of regular areas to be sodded: Before ordering sod for your new lawn, you must figure the square footage of sod needed. To make the calculation simple, often this total can be reduced to a series of squares and rectangles.

Benefits of Sod vs. Seeding

There are basically two ways to establish a lawn: turfgrass sod or seeding/hydroseeding. Sodding is applying strips of turfgrass sod to prepared soil creating an instant lawn. Seeding/Hydroseeding is applying selected turf-grass seeds to prepared soil, allowing it to grow in place to maturity.
