Sod is essentially a sheet of pre-grown grass that, when planted in your yard, immediately covers the dirt with pristine lawn. Fortunately, measuring your lawn for sod is a very easy process that only requires a few basic calculations. Sod is typically sold by the square foot and therefore, you must calculate how many square feet of lawn you have to cover. We have a great instruction guide on the best ways to measure the area where you would like to lay the sod.
