You can't! You need a better description of the area that the length relates to. I assume it is a perimeter length? Of what; circle, square, ??

OK, then. 54" = 1-1/2 yards so for every 3 linear feet (or for every 1 linear yard) you have 1.5 square yards. So the conversion is

Linear yards x 1.5 = square yards
Linear feet x 0.5 = square yards
