Oltco Resin Bound Driveways

How to Measure Your Outside Space


Correct measurements can help ease the process of enquiring about a new resin bound surface for your driveway, path, or patio. Our team can give you a more accurate price estimate over the phone which saves you time and means that the installation process can get underway.

Here are some of our top tips for measuring your outside space, so that you can tackle even the trickiest driveway.


Measuring a standard square or rectangular area and converting into m²

Measure the length and width of your area in metres and then multiply the two measurements together. This will give you the area in m²

For example:

If the length was 4m and the width was 2m the calculation would be as follows:

4m x 2m = 8m²


Measuring triangles and converting into m²

For triangular areas, multiple the length and width and then divide by two.

For example:

If the length was 3m and the width was 6m the calculation would be as follows:

(3m x 6m) / 2 = 9m²


Measuring other areas

If your area isn’t square, rectangular or triangular then separate the area into those shapes and calculate the areas separately, following the advice above and finally add the measurements together to get the total.
