A square yard is a measure of area that can be used to measure many things, including the size of a yard. I can also be used to easily quantify the amount of sod you need to cover your lawn. However, sometimes measurements are given in units other than square yards, such as square inches, square feet, square miles or square meters. If you need the measurement in square yards, you can convert between the two units to get the measurement you need.

Divide the number of square feet by 9 to calculate the equivalent in square yards. For example, if you have 90 square feet, divide 90 by 9 to get 10 square yards.

Divide the number of square inches by 1,296 to calculate the equivalent in square yards. For example, if you have 3,000 square inches, divide 3,000 by 1,296 to get 2.31 square yards.

Multiply the number of square miles by 3,097,600 to calculate the equivalent in square yards. For example, if you have 1.2 square miles, multiply 1.2 by 3,097,600 to get 3,717,120 square yards.

Divide the number of square meters by 0.83612736 to calculate the equivalent in square yards. For example, if you have 22 square meters, divide 22 by 0.83612736 to get 26.31 square yards.
