Area Calculation help

Can anyone help me out here please!

I have an area of 1150m2. If I use paving flags that are 600mm x 450mm how many am I going to need?

Here you go click here has a pop up calculator to input the area and then click on 'Work it out' :)

About 4350.

4260 slabs.

That's some patio you have there!

It's probably in-between those numbers allowing for wastage and shape of area to be covered and some flags having to be cut etc.

that you'll need to make an allowance for the grout lines - you're not laying the stones edge to edge, so you'll need less than the total I quoted.

Unless you have calculated the area wrongly :-)

1150 square metres = area length 34 x width 34 metres (rounded up) (square root is 33.91164991562634069532278163313)
or 111 feet 6inches x 111 feet 6inches (rounded up)

Patio? It sounds more like the local authority car park! Are you absolutely sure the square area has been calculated correctly? Because 1150m² is a big area. Even 100m² is a large area, make sure you haven't mixed up feet with metres.

I think he may have his Meters with Centimeters mixed up.

If it is Cm then you have a patio of about 3.4m x 3.4m (11ft x 11Fft)

60 slabs should be enough for this area including a few spare for cutting etc.
