    1100 sq feet?

    If so, you need to order 1100 sq feet. I have never heard anyone having to order rolls individually. It is normally per pallet.

    :confused:

    6' X 1.5' = 9 sq/f

    1100 / 9 = 123 rolls

    It's not rocket science dude! but honestly if you tel you supplier you need 100 sq/f they will figure it out, I have never ordered per roll...

  7. I just measure it out in square feet and then convert it into square yards and call and tell them how many yards I need and they will cut me whatever I need, around here they deal in square yards.

    Pallets are usually really close to 500 square feet. I think mine are like 463 or around there. Good luck.

    O yea make sure you have a landscape
    Rake to level out the ground before
    Hand. Also don't forget to roll it.
    There is my free advice for the day!
