Trying to determine how much sod you should order is an important but easy thing to

calculate. Take the area to be sodded and determine imaginary squares, rectangles, and triangles

to encompass the entire area.

Measure the length and width of the squares and rectangles. Multiply the length

measurement by the width measurement this will give you the number of square feet within the

area. Measure the length and width of the triangles. Multiply the length measurement by the

width measurement and divide the figure by 2 this will give you the number of square feet within

the triangle.

Add together all the square foot calculations from the squares, rectangles, and triangles

and you have the area within what you want to sod. To ensure you have enough sod ordered,

add an additional 3-5% to allow for trimming around any objects which may be present.

Now you are ready to call and order your sod for either delivery or pick-up on the day of

your choice. Please keep in mind that you only want to order as much sod as your crew can lay

in a four (4) hour period. If necessary split the amount of sod that you need into multiple

deliveries or pick-ups. This four (4) hour period is not nearly as critical in cool weather but is

extremely important as the temperatures increase.

Now the work begins.
