# Thread: tell me the logic

1. ## tell me the logic

Hello,
Can anyone tell me, how to test the no of grass, in the open ground. What is the logic.

2. ## Re: tell me the logic

Use a random number of cows.
... or goats.

3. ## Re: tell me the logic

Simple, count the number of blades in one square foot and multiply by the total number of square feet in the area minus the square footage of non-grassy areas. Or you can use a random number of cows or goats as Joe has suggested.
Both will be about as accurate.

Another method would be to weigh one blade of grass, then divide that into the total weight of all the grass in the area. This method may be too accurate however.

4. ## Re: tell me the logic

Should one measure more than one square foot? Should one perhaps go metric here and measure square meters/metres?

What kind of grass? Are there multiple kinds?

Are there people grazing?

Seriously Rex, based upon your recent posts it might be helpful for you to read a few topics:

Topic 1.

Topic 2.

Topic 3.

Thank you!

A quick Google search indicates that the no of grass in the open ground = 0

Lol, also, what about where the dog always pees? On my lawn this grass has died so often it's no longer there. What is the +/- buffer on this calculation? Or maybe this is directly proportional to the number of pets owned? Would the type of pet/animal also make a difference?

Also, if the animal poops in one particular spot, would the grass grow better than in your sample area? Maybe there would be a larger number of blades per square foot in this area. Would this offset the dead grass area?

Oh! And shade. We would need to measure the density of grass based on the amount of sunlight received per day. And climate. Where is this grass? If it's in Canada then the growing season is only 8 months or so, whereas in Florida, the growing season is always? (is this a stereotype? Not about Canada about Florida).

I think there is a more complex formula involved here than what we are considering.

N-o-o-o! Thank goodness, we pretty much get a break from mowing from November to March, or so. (During that time, only the weeds grow [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Down here the grass is made of weeds!

Since, contrary to what one political movement would like us to buy into, we are experiencing a period of global cooling which is permitting the weedgrass to grow even better. Owing to the fact that the last time I cut my grass, all I got was twigs &amp; seeds.

Where I am in Canada we actually had a really bad dry spell so I took the opportunity to let all my grass die. I'm pretty sure it looked similar to the front of Jake's place at the time. Unfortunately the rain came down and the grass came back to life, meaning I had to mow it. I think I heard a collective cheer from the neighbors when I started up my environmentally friendly electric lawn mower.
