How To Do The Calculation Properly?
In order for you to define the right amount of synthetic turf needed for your project, you should first calculate your lawn’s square footage. To get the square footage, simply multiply the height by the width of the area to be covered in your project.
If your lawn isn’t a perfect square or rectangle, be sure to measure the widest area of the lawn as well as the longest part in order to ensure that you will get enough products to completely cover your lawn. In terms of your golf turf rolls, keep in mind that most of our products are 12 ft. wide instead of 15 ft. wide. To compute the entire cost of the artificial grass, just multiply the overall square footage of artificial turf required by the price per square foot.
For example, a 600sq. ft. the lawn will cost $1,386.00 at $2.31 per square foot. (600 sq. ft. x $2.31 = $1,386.00). If you need any questions or help to measure your lawn’s square footage, you may contact Synthetic Lawns, the leading turf supplier in Sydney and surrounding areas.
To give you a much better idea on how to calculate the square footage of your lawn, here is a step-by-step process for you:

- First, pace off the distances and get the sum of the number of steps
- You can place down a tape measure to know what your normal step is measured in feet. Practice a little on whatever comfortable length of step you can take and check your distances from time to time.
- Convert the number of steps you have taken to your well-calibrated measurement in feet by simply multiply the step by the distance of each step in feet. (Example: 22 steps taken at 3 feet/step will be equal to 66 ft.
- Multiply each of the areas as needed based on its shape in order to convert them to square feet.
- Sum up their individual areas in order to acquire the lawn’s total square feet area.
Ultimately, draw a simple diagram that will show your house and each of the lawn section together with the overall square feet of each area.
