Measure the width at each width line. In this example, there are 5 width lines: C, D, E, F and G.

**Calculate the area**by adding all of the width lines together and multiplying the total by the distance between each line (C+D+E+F+G) x Segment Width.

In this regard, how do you find the area of a garden?

To **calculate** the rectangular **area** multiply the short side by the long side (length x width). If a rectangle is 6 metres wide and 8 metres long it would be 48 square metres. Adding 10% for any issues would suggest you would need around 53 square metres of turf. To **calculate** the square **area** multiply both sides.

**Calculate the Area as Square Footage**

- If you are measuring a square or rectangle area, multiply length times width; Length x Width = Area.
- For other area shapes, see formulas below to calculate Area (ft
^{2}) = Square Footage.

Secondly, what is the formula for area?

Area is measured in square units such as square inches, square feet or square meters. To find the area of a rectangle, multiply the **length** by the width. The formula is: A = L * W where A is the area, L is the **length**, W is the width, and * means multiply.

**Basic Methods**

- Find the square-foot area of a square or rectangular flower bed by multiplying the bed's length by its width.
- Determine the area of an oval-shaped flower bed by multiplying its length and width.
- Calculate the area of a circular flower bed by multiplying 3.14 by the radius squared.
