Square meterage
#1
Hi, I have a favour please to someone who can help. After the decking project has finished, I need to do the lawn. I'm still looking at to fake grass v real grass. I need to know the square meterage of my area. Here is a picture to give you an idea of what I mean. All measurements are in cm and are very un-accurate as I was measuring it on my own with a short tape measure. Although some of it doesn't all add up as the garden isn't all exactly square.

Thanks  Smile

Your pic is more or less an inverted 'T' shape. Cut off the left and right bits of the 'T' leaving an 'I' shape. Work out area by multiplying one side by another. Now do the same calc to the remaining bits individually. I can't read the numbers or I'd do it for you.

Fake grass?! It's not a bloody greengrocers, get some grass seed.

Weighing up costs of both first but need to know the size first. The garden is a state, when digging one areas up to lay some shingle I dug up a coke can, pot noodle pot, crisp packets and basically rubble not dirt!! Will need to take up plenty to lay either turf or fake grass.
