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.
- Measure the length
Measure the length of one side of the area.
- Measure the width
Measure the width of one side of the area.
- Calculate the area
Multiply the measured length by the width to arrive at the area of the space in square feet.
- Compute the square yardage
Divide the square footage of the area by 9 to arrive at the number of square yards.
