I use go ilawn most of the time. Can bid for mainteanance, design irrigation systems, measure linear distance, and of course find the exact square footage.

I measure each property with go ilawn. I save a screen shot photo, save a google image screen shot, and all other related files to each customer's dedicated folder with auto backup to external hard drive.

i would average the 2 unless it was a real shrp angle then i would guestimate. but first decide how many inches your going with, divide that number by 12. then multiply your the 2 widths add them together. multiply it buy the first number you found. for example 60 x 65= 3900 if you where going 2.5 in then 2.5/12= .208 so .208 x 3900=813 so there are 27 cubic feet in a yard 813/27= 30.11111 so 30. Now if there is a circular bed that you would find the average distance across the whole circle say it was 35 feet end to end every way you measured (a perfect circle) you would multiply 35 x35= 1225 then multiply it by .785= 961.625 go with 2.5 in again 961 x .208= 199.9 = 200/27= 7.4

Keep it simple. I gotto the point where topsoil and mulch are 1" for every 300 square feet. Divide your square feet by 300 and that will give you a total at 1" multiply that by the inches and then I use a multiplier of 5% 10% 15% based on difficulty of install. So, with perrenials I use 15%, because you want to keep the mulch off the leaves and flowers, therefore you have to do with handfulls. A bed on a hill and tough wheeling it up the hill but easy spread 10% I hope this makes sense.

If you have a property that all the sides are different lengths, you do this. you take the two lengths, add them, then divide by 2. You then take the two widths, add them, then divide by 2. You then take THESE two numbers, and multiply. What you are doing is multiplying the average length times the average width.
