Use a tape measure

To get an accurate measurement, it’s important to use a tape measure rather than stepping out or estimating the distance. Measure along the outside edges of your lawn area and write down each measurement.

Use simple shapes

If your lawn is a complex shape, you may need to break the area into simple shapes. You can then calculate the area of each shape and add them up for the total area.

Calculate the area

For squares and rectangles, multiply the length by the width to get the square metres. For triangles, multiply the height by the base and then divide by 2. You can also use the calculator above to make this easier.
