# Measuring Odd Shaped Lawns

Use any of the following formulas to meet your yard design or layout. We recommend planting a minimum of one plug per square foot.

 Circle A = 3.14 x r2 Example: Circle's radius (r) is 10 feet. Multiply the constant 3.14 by the radius squared. Thus: Area = 3.14 x 102 Area = 3.14 x 100 Area = 314 square feet Example: Triangle's base (b) is 10 feet and the height (h) from base to point is 20 feet. Thus: Area = (10 x 20) ÷ 2 Area = 200 ÷ 2 Area = 100 square feet Break the free-form shape down to simple forms, then calculate each form's area. Once each area is calculated, add the areas together to yield the total area. Example: Circle (A = 3.14 x r2) Rectangle (A = b x h) Square (A = b x h) (As a rule, it is wise to add an additional 10% to cover estimation and measuring error for a free form lawn.)
