How to Calculate Sod Pallets to Your Yard

Using sod, instead of seed or sprigs, to set a lawn area allows you to create a lawn nearly immediately, reduce mud, mud and erosion, and guarantee that the new lawn is essentially weed free. To ensure that you purchase enough sod to totally cover the prepared website, you have to measure the website correctly and convert your dimensions to sod pallets. Many sod pallets have 50 square yards of sod, but check with your sod supplier in case the sum of sod per binder varies.

Divide, on your mind or by drawing on paper, the lawn’s planned landscaping place into simple geometric shapes like rectangles, triangles and circles. If the planned sod region is already rotating there isn’t any need to split it into smaller shapes.

Measure each of the split sections of the planned sod place, in the feet. Assess the length and the width of any rectangle, the radius of a circular region and the foundation and also the distance between the baseline and the opposite point on a walkway.

Calculate the area of each part of the lawn. For a rectangular part, multiple the length and the width. For circles, square the radius — which is, multiply the amount by itself — and multiply the result of 3.14. For triangles, multiply the base length from the triangle’s height, the shortest distance between the foundation and the stage on the opposite side, and multiply this amount by 1/2.

Insert the regions of every section of lawn with each other to determine the total square footage of the planned sod region.

Divide the total square feet of the region from 9 to convert the measurement from square feet to square yards.

Multiply the whole square yardage of sod you intend to use by 0.1, or 10 percent, and add this smaller amount to the whole amount of sod you were intending to purchase. As a general rule, it is a fantastic idea to arrange approximately ten percent more sod than you expect to require. Should you rounded up liberally during the measuring and measuring steps this might not be necessary.

Divide the new total square yards of sod needed by 50 or so the particular amount of square yards your sod supplier says will function on each pallet. This will provide you the range of pallets needed.
