To get an idea of how much sod you will need, think of the area to be sodded as separate shapes like rectangles and triangles. Use this diagram for an example:

Side 1

Side 2

Side 1

To decide how much sod you need, you need to measure the area to be sodded. This is done by taking the length multiplied by the width of the area to be sodded and divide this number by nine (9). Add all individual area totals, this gives you the total number of yards needed.
