Fill in one of the forms below to have the area and volume calculated for you.
See below for how to determine the shapes of your play area.
Draw your site as accurately as possible - graph paper works well.
For odd or complex shapes, divide the area into combinations of rectangles, triangles, and/or circles.
Use the following formulas to determine area:
Rectangle: Area = length x width
Circle: Area = 3.1416 x the square of the radius (distance from the center to any point on the circle)
Triangle: Area = 1/2 x length of base x length of height
You will need to install 16" of Kids Karpet Playground surface to achieve a depth of 12"
after allowing for a 4" compaction* post installation.
* The material will compact approximately 33% after it is first installed, requiring an additional 4" depth installed for each cubic yard of material.
