Convert square feet into yards by multiplying the length of a space by the width of the space to calculate the area of the space. Divide the sum by 9 to arrive at the square yardage of the space.

  1. Measure the length

    Measure the length of one side of the area.

  2. Measure the width

    Measure the width of one side of the area.

  3. Calculate the area

    Multiply the measured length by the width to arrive at the area of the space in square feet.

  4. Compute the square yardage

    Divide the square footage of the area by 9 to arrive at the number of square yards.
