For the past 10 years, homeowners and renters used our simple walking method to help measure their yard so they can find out how many linear feet they need to order. Now, that most of us have smartphones there is an easy and free app to help you measure your yard.

You can easily measure without breaking out a ruler. Walk the perimeter of the area you want to enclose, counting your steps the whole way. Multiple your total steps by 2 ½ and that’s the amount of linear feet you need.
