Squaring Up to Measuring

If you have a standard square or rectangular lawn, then you're in luck: this is the easiest shape to measure. If you're using artificial grass to green up a balcony or roof terrace, the chances are they'll also be square or rectangular in shape, making measuring up a breeze.

Simply measure the length and width and then multiply those two numbers together to get the size in square metres. For example, your existing lawn might be 8m by 4m, giving a total size of 32 square metres.

Even if your lawn is L-shaped, you can still use this method for working out the amount of synthetic turf you'll need. Simply work out the size of each of the rectangles that make up the L and then add them together. Simple!

Circling Around the Problem

It's when you want to create a more interesting shaped lawn that you'll run into some more complicated calculations. There are two ways to deal with it. You can sketch out the lawn you want to create on squared paper, adding up the number of squares that the shape covers and estimating the number of partially filled squares to come up with a rough idea of how much artificial grass you'll need to order. Or you can simply work out the maximum width and length of your new lawn and then use the leftovers to create some funky coasters, grass mats for the bathroom or even grass cushions for the garden furniture!
