## Number of Pavers Need For a 12×12 Feet Patio

To calculate number of pavers needed in 12×12 feet patio, we have some requirements and considerations in the patio.

Requirements
Size of patio is 12×12 feet (single or combination of many parts)
Laying surface is plane

Considerations
Area of patio (12 feet ×12 feet) = 144 square feet
Size of paver is 12 inch ×12 inch = 1 feet ×1 feet (Face of paver)

Covering Area of a Single Paver
= 1 feet ×1 feet
= 1 square feet

Note: We are ignoring gaps between two edges of pavers because its negligible.

Total Number of Pavers in 12×12 Feet Patio
= Area of patio in square feet/Area of a single paver in square feet
= 144 square feet / 1 square feet
= 144 Nos Pavers

Take 5% extra pavers as wastage. i.e. total number of pavers in 12×12 feet patio is 144 + 5% of 144 = 151.2 nos pavers (Say 151 pavers)

Final Result
Total 151 nos pavers are needed for a 12×12 feet patio with 1 feet×1 feet (12 inch × 12 inch) paver and 5% wastage.

## Number of 8 Inch×8 Inch Pavers Need For a 12×12 Feet Patio

To calculate number of 8 inch×8 inch pavers need for a 12×12 feet patio is calculated as following.

Covering Area of a Single Paver
= 8 inch ×8 inch
= 64 square inch
= 0.444 square feet

Note: We are ignoring gaps between two edges of pavers because its negligible.

Total Number of Pavers in 12×12 Feet Patio
= Area of patio in square feet/Area of a single paver
= 144 square feet / 0.444 square feet
= 324.3 nos pavers (Say 324 nos pavers)

Take 5% extra pavers as wastage.
I.e. total number of pavers in 12×12 feet patio is 324 + 5% of 324 = 340.2 nos pavers (Say 340 pavers)
