How to Measure for Sod

In order to figure out how much sod you need for your project you will need to measure the areas that you plan to sod.
Grab a pen, paper & measuring tape and head outside to jot down some measurements.
It can seem daunting to do the math, but it’s all going to start with measuring.

Make a quick sketch of your yard especially if you have large yard or irregular shaped areas.

Break your yard up into smaller sections if needed, to make it easier.  Measure the areas in feet and jot down the measurements as you go.

Remember to take out any areas that will not require sod – house, garage, decks, patios, side-walks, gardens, sheds, etc. Be as accurate as possible.

Due to the perishable nature of sod, we do not take returns. And we can’t be responsible for yards that we did not measure. 

If you are having trouble or have questions call our office and we can assist you.

In order to calculate the amount of sod required you must measure the length and width of the areas in feet.

Length x Width= square feet  divided by 9 will give you the number of square yards needed.
Example:  45′ x 25′ = 1125sq ft / 9 = 125 sq yards

  • Our sod rolls measure 24″ x 81″ or 2 ft x 6.75 ft.
  • Each roll of sod will cover 1.5 sq. yds  or 13.5 sq. ft.
  • 60 rolls per pallet = 90 sq yds per pallet
