Garland Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Garland Length.

GL = L * 1.5

  • Where GL is the Garland Length (inches)
  • L is the length of the banister or mantel (in) 

How to Calculate Garland Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Garland Length.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the length of the banister or mantel (in). 
    • The length of the banister or mantel (in) is given as: 20.
  2. Finally, calculate the Garland Length using the equation above: 

GL = L * 1.5

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

GL = 20 * 1.5 = 30.00 (inches)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

length of the banister or mantel (in) = 40

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

GL = L * 1.5 = ?
