    Ok i'm going to be laying some sod and I just need some help with these measurements. I know area is L x W. But im not positive when theres 3 sides. I came up with 584 Sq ft. The area just looks bigger than that. I know I should know this but I was always taught it's better to ask and be sure then to not ask and be wrong. In this case being wrong could cost me alot of money. Any help would be appriciated.

    Thanks again.

    I agree with you, if this is a straight line on from 13' down to 3'. Your average width is 8'. 8*73=584'.
