Lawn Care Guide: Step 2 Determine Lawn Area


Step 2: Determine Lawn Area Lawn area map

It's important to know the square footage of your lawn area so you can purchase the correct amounts of grass seed and soil amendments. Use this grid to draw a "lawn area map" to help you calculate your footage.

Draw an outline of your lot. You may need to pace off the rough dimensions first. Include your house, driveway, walkways, trees and any other places you will not be growing grass (see sketch example).

You can also use this map to layout a landscaping plan for a perennial border, shrubs, water garden, etc.

Tip: Use a current survey of your property to give accurate measurements.

To calculate the square footage. Enter measurements here:

Lot Area

length ____ft. x width ____ft. = area (a) _____sq. ft.

House Area

length ____ft. x width ____ft. = area (b) _____sq. ft.

Non-Grass Area

any area you do not want grass = area (c) _____sq. ft.

Total Lawn Area

(a) _____ sq. ft. - (b) _____ sq. ft. - (c) _____ sq. ft.

= Total Grass Area _____ sq. ft.
