How to plot the meshed geometry like this ?lets say the mesh dimension is 1*1

This solution creates a grid based on the coordinates stored in xy. It then removes any grid coordinates outside of the polygon defined by xy by replacing those values with NaN. The grid is plotted using surf() and the polygon perimeter is plotting using polyshape/plot.
% nx2 [x,y] values that define the polygon
xy = [0 0; 20 0; 25 -5; 45 -5; 45 -10; 0 -10];
% Compute the grid covering the entire extent of the polygon
interval = 1;
xGridVals = min(xy(:,1)) : interval : max(xy(:,1));
yGridVals = min(xy(:,2)) : interval : max(xy(:,2));
[xg,yg] = meshgrid(xGridVals ,yGridVals);
% Remove grid values outside of the polygon
[in,on] = inpolygon(xg,yg,xy(:,1),xy(:,2));
xg(~(in|on)) = NaN;
yg(~(in|on)) = NaN;
% Plot the grid & Polygon
