idealgrass is 3.7 mts wide and is sold by the lineal metre.  If the
area you intend to cover is wider than 3.71 mts, then you will need to join the grass.

Remember, two or more rolls laid side by side MUST be laid in the same pile direction – and this will determine how much grass you need. This will generally be more than the m2 of the area as there will be wastage. Draw a diagram of the area to be covered (to scale) and the quantity of grass can be easily calculated

Assume you are covering an area of 7mts wide x 8mts long = 56m2

Determining Idealgrass lin.mts.

Divide the total width of the area by 3.7 to give you the number of runs. Example: 7mts ÷ 3.7 = 1.9 runs (round up to 2 runs of 3.7mts).

Take the length of your area and multiply the number of runs Example: 8mts x 2 runs = 16 lin.mts. (x 3.7m = 58.56m2)

Determining Base Materia

Take the total m2 of the area to be prepared and multiply by depth of base material (in this instance 50mm = .05) Example: 56m2 x .05 = 2.8cu.mts. of base material.

Determining Infill Material either sand or granulated rubber (based on 37-40mm pile height)

Granulated Rubber: One x 25kg. bag of rubber will cover 6m2. ,
therefore divide total square meterage by 6. Example: 56m2 ÷ 6 = 9.3 round up to 10 bags of rubber (always allow a little bit more)

Silica Sand (clean washed, rounded grade) 4kg of sand per m2, Example: 56m2 x 4 = 224kg of sand (or 12 x 20kg bags)
