Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. We would recommend that the old lawn is sprayed off and left for 14 days. At this time the old grass should be stripped via a sod cutter or spade. The soil should then be cultivated and levelled.
Firstly use one specific unit of measurement, i.e. feet, inches, metres, yards etc. the rule of thumb is allow for 5% waste on standard shapes and 10% waste on irregular shapes
Rectangle – multiply the length by the breath and this is the squared area required
Triangle – measure the base of the triangle, then from the centre of that point measure the height of the triangle. Then the calculation is as follows- multiply ½ the base by the height and this is your squared area.
Circle – good old fashioned PIE will calculate this one. Measure the diameter of the circle, and divide that by 2. This is your radius. Now, multiply the radius by itself to get the radius squared.Finally multiply the radius squared by 3.14. This will give the squared area of the circle.
For everything else, try and split your garden into these shapes and calculate the garden section by section.
