Circles are easy to figure out. Remember, a circles radius is half the distance across the middle of the circle. Take the radius of the circle and simply multiply it by itself.

For example, 6x6 = 36

Now take that number and multiply it by 3.14

For example, 36x3.14 = 113.02

The area of a 10ft diameter circle is 78.5sqft.

Finding the area in a Square or Rectangle is simple. Multiply the length by the width and that's it!

For example, 4x6 = 24

Length x Width = Area

There are two different types of triangles.

A triangle has at least 2 equal length sides. A right Triangle has a Short, a Medium, and a Long side. That means that one corner has to be square or in others word it must be at a 90° angle. To measure a Right Triangle, take the shortest side and multiply it by the medium length side.

For example, 5 X 6 = 30

The area of the triangle is half of that.

For example, 30 ÷ 2 = 15

If you have a Triangle, simply divide the Triangle in half and then you will have 2 Right Triangles. Calculate the area of each of the Right Triangles, add them together and then divide by two.

For example, 5 X 6 = 30

The area of the triangle is half of that.

For example, 30 ÷ 2 = 15

Now we're ready to add up a real yard Yard shapes vary so you need to calculate all the basic shapes then add them together and subtract the areas that will not be sodded. Draw a map of the area to be sodded. Take lots of measurements. Now use these simple figures to cover your map. Add them all together to get the area of your lawn. If

Now we're ready to add up a real yard Yard shapes vary so you need to calculate all the basic shapes then add them together and subtract the areas that will not be sodded. Draw a map of the area to be sodded. Take lots of measurements. Now use these simple figures to cover your map. Add them all together to get the area of your lawn. If you have an area to be left without grass out in the middle of the lawn (a pool or deck) find its area the same way and subtract it from you total.

For example, Circle+Rectangle+Triangle-Pool=LAWN
