What is your favorite way to measure the size of a new yard? Anyone tried using a GPS?
I use a local gov site. Gives exact area.
Be simple ,just use a wheel and write it down.
Either bysite or Gogle earth. the measuring tool on there is amazing.
Does this account for houses, driveways etc?
I hate measuring lawns...but I know that my measurements are pretty accurate.
With the price of chem and ferts, I want to be VERY close.
I've been doing it long enough, I'm usually w/in 250 sqft w/o even measuring anymore.
Yes. You can either measure and subtract the house and drive, or you can just measure around it. Same with pools and such. Now,...you want to see a cool way to bid for plowing and salting,....this is it! you can measure lots, and know just how much salt you are going to using by the area(s) covered.
Measuring wheel, measuring wheel, measuring wheel. Hope you also factor in difficulty factors too.........hills, trees/landscaping, gates, swingsets, etc, etc, etc. I'd much rather treat a 10,000 s/f lawn that is flat & wide open than a 3,000 s/f lawn that's difficult.
Nothing like pools and gates you can't get a spreader through and have to
go through the neighbors yard. Are shrubs so far back your hose want reach.
i always measure if for no other reason then for customer preception. always add for degree of difficulty
