How To Measure Your Beds and Borders

 

When ordering your online plant plan, we will need to know how big your beds and borders are. Use the guides below to help you measure!

 

Rectangular border

Measure the height and width of your border in meters.

Height in meters  x Width in meters = the size of your border

Square border

Measure the height and width of your border in meters.

Height in meters  x Width in meters = the size of your border

Triangular border

Measure the height and base of your border in meters.

Height in meters  x Base in meters / 2 = the size of your border

Circular border

Measure the radius of your bed meters.

Radius in meters  x 3.14 = the size of your border

Irregular border

If your border is an irregular shape, don't worry! Use the basic shapes you need to fill the border, either by laying bamboo canes down or using string, and use the sums above to work out their sizes. Then add them all together. Job done.
