Square meter to square yard Overview
Both ‘meter’ and ‘yard’ are units used to measure length. Among the two, ‘meter’ is the standard international unit, whereas yard is as per local preferences. When the measurement unit used is ‘meter,’ the corresponding area reading is in square meter (m^{2}, sq meter). Similarly, when the measurement unit used is ‘yard,’ the corresponding area reading is in square yard (sq yard). Both units are commonly used to measure land as well as properties.
To ensure accurate measurement, it is important that all the parties involved in a land/property deal adhere to one measurement unit. Thus, one may need to convert 1 square meter to square yard, or square yard to square meter, to come at a common figure.

Relation between square meter to square yard
The relationship between square meters (m²) and square yards (yd²) is based on the conversion factor that 1 square meter is approximately equal to 1.19599 square yards.
The conversion factors are as follows:
1 square meter = 1.19599 square yards (approximately)
1 square yard = 0.836127 square meters (approximately)
So, to convert square meters to square yards, you can use the formula:
Square yards = Square meters × 1.19599
And to convert square yards to square meters:
Square meters = Square yards × 0.836127
These are approximate conversion factors, and the actual values may vary slightly based on rounding and the specific conversion method used.

What is square meter
A square meter, often abbreviated as "m²", is a unit of area measurement in the metric system. It is the area of a square with sides that are each one meter long. The square meter is widely used internationally for measuring land area, room sizes, and other twodimensional spaces. It is a standard unit within the International System of Units (SI) and is commonly employed in various fields, including real estate, construction, and scientific research. To visualise a square meter, imagine a square that is one meter in length on each side, resulting in a total area of one square meter.
What is square yard
A square yard is a unit of area measurement commonly used in the United States, the United Kingdom, and some other countries that follow the imperial system. It is the area of a square with sides that are each one yard (three feet or 36 inches) in length. The symbol for square yard is "yd²".
To calculate the area in square yards, you can multiply the length and width of a rectangular space (both measured in yards) or use the square of the side length for a squareshaped area.
Frequently asked questions
1 Square meter equals 1.19 square yard. You can use a unit calculator available online to easily convert the desired number from Square meter to square yard.
The symbol of square meter is sq m.
