Before using the calculation charts to determine how much mulch, sod grass, or how many plants you might need to fill a given area you will need to measure and determine the total square footage of the area to be covered or planted.
The calculation of square feet, square yards and square inches is among the most common of the math operations you'll use in home building and remodeling. It's also one of the easiest to apply.

HOW MUCH RAINWATER CAN YOU COLLECT? You can estimate the amount of rainwater that can be harvested from a catchment surface — that is, any surface used to collect rainwater such as a roof — by using this simple calculation: 1 square foot of catchment area x 1 inch of rainfall = 0.6 gallons of water For example, if you have a 1,000-square-foot roof, for every inch of rain that falls you could yield 600 gallons of water.
