Using the Square Yardage Calculator

This calculator is perfect for finding the square yardage of any area, especially for construction, remodeling, and renovation projects such as carpeting, hardwood flooring, tiling, framing, drywalling, painting, and gardening. This will also help determine the total price of the project.

Calculate the square yardage for imperial measurements, metric measurements, or a mix of imperial and metric measurements. The calculator accepts inches, feet, yards, centimeters, and meters and converts all these measurements to yards.

How to Find Square Yards

Square yardage is just an area, measured in yards. Finding square yards is just like finding an area, by multiplying the length times the width. For finding the square yardage of feet or another unit of measure, first convert the length and width measurements to yards, then multiply.


measurements on a drawing of a square needed to find square yards

Square

square yardage (yds2) = length x width


measurements on a drawing of a rectangle needed to find square yards

Rectangle

square yardage (yds2) = length x width


measurements on a drawing of a border needed to find square yards

Rectangular Border

Using measurements in yards:

outside (yds2) = length x width
inside (yds2) = (length – (2 x border)) x (width – (2 x border))

border (yds2) = outside (yds2) – inside (yds2)


measurements on a drawing of a circle needed to find square yards

Circle

square yardage (yds2)= π x (diameter / 2)2

π = 3.14159265359


measurements on a drawing of a triangle needed to find square yards

Triangle

square yardage (yds2) = (1/4) x
(a+b+c) x (b+c-a) x (c+a-b) x (a+b-c)
