Calculating Square Footage

square-footage-exampleTo determine the square footage of synthetic grass needed you multiply the width of the area by the length of the area that is to be covered (see diagram). Most of our artificial turf rolls are 15 feet wide; some indoor or putting green synthetic turfs are 12 feet wide. To calculate the total cost of the synthetic grass, multiply the total square footage of artificial turf needed by the price per square foot.

Example: You have 600 square feet of yard space that you are going to install synthetic grass in. A high quality synthetic grass that costs $4.00 per sq. ft. will cost you $2400.00.

20 feet x 30 feet = 600 square feet

600 square feet x $4.00 = $2400.00 (Example of artificial grass cost only.  Installation is an additional cost.)

Since NexGen Lawns synthetic grass is delivered in 15 foot rolls like carpet. Most of the time you will need to order more artificial turf than you actually need in order to cover the desired space. This helps make sure you have enough artificial grass to cover your area when cutting in around edging, patios and fences. Unlike inside your house the ground outdoors will not be flat and your area will more than likely not be square which can cause you to be short when the synthetic grass is laid out on the ground. It is always best to order just a little more than the measured area to make sure you have enough to completely cover the entire area.
