Rectangle turf calculator
To calculate the turf you will need for a rectangle lawn, multiply the length x width.
Circle turf calculator
To calculate how much turf is required for a circle lawn, multiply diameter x 0.80 then by diameter again.
回答= 14.5米 x 0.80 = 11.6 11.6 x 14.5米 = 168.2平方米
Oval turf calculator

A回答= 26米 x 0.80 x 14米 = 291.2平方米
Complex shape turf calculator
To calculate the turf required for a complex area, first divide the total area into simple shapes and calculate these areas. Then you add them together.
例如： 长方形：长5米、宽3米 —— 5米 x 3米 = 15平方米；三角形：底边2米、高3米
回答= 2米 x 0.50 x 3米 = 3平方米；总面积：15平方米 + 3平方米 = 18平方米
Triangle turf calculator
To calculate the turf needed for a triangle lawn, multiply the length x width and divide by two.
回答= 23米 x 0.50 x 18米 = 207平方米
Turf slab sizes
When you’re calculating turf for simple areas of regular shape for the front yard, side and backyard, it is helpful to also work out the size of the slabs. This is so you don’t end up with turf left over, have to order extra or find you made slight miscalculations because of a turf shape that requires another slab square to complete it.
