1 piece of sod is 16″ x “24”, which equals 2.75 square feet

A 500 square feet pallet contains approximately 180 pieces of sod.

To calculate how many pieces of sod you need, Measure total area (length x width) and divide by 2.75

Example: Area to lay sod is 10 ft x 10 ft = 100 sq ft. 100 sq ft divided by 2.75 = 36 pieces

Area = Length x Width

Area Calculations: Draw your site on paper as accurately as possible. Remember, Area = Length x Width.

Please Note: Calculators are an approximation only, as projects differ.
