How to measure

Are you unsure on how much artificial grass you may need? Or is your garden an awkward shape? Using the guides below will help you to make a more precise estimate for the amount of artificial grass that is needed.

Square and rectangular lawns

If you have a square or rectangular lawn, it is simple to measure exactly how much artificial grass you will need.

  • Measure the length of your lawn.
  • Measure the width of your lawn.
  • Multiply the two measurements together.

So, as shown in the image above. If A was 2m and B was 2m, you would need 4 square metres of artificial grass.

Round or angled lawns

For round and oval shaped lawns:

  • Measure the length of the two widest sections of your lawn.
  • Multiplying the measurements will give you the total number of square metres required.

For lawns with angled or shaped areas:

  • We suggest measuring the height and the width as in a square or rectangular lawn.
  • It is best to use a single section of grass, then cut to shape ensuring a perfect angle.

L-shaped lawns

  • We recommend that you break up the l-shaped lawn into two square sections.
  • Calculate the square metres of artificial grass needed by using the steps above regarding measuring for a square or rectangular lawn.
  • Do this for both of the squares of your L-shaped lawn.
  • Add these totals together.
