Shaping a lawn

Kay Walsh asked 15 years ago

My lawn is now an indefinite roundish shape andi would like to make it a well-defined oval shape-do you have a formula that I could use?

A perfect circle is made with a peg at the centre and string on a radius as required.

To make an elliptical shape,  you use two centre pegs with a loop of string that reaches around the pegs and beyond. By varying the distance between the pegs and the length of string you can create wider or narrower, longer or shorter elliptical or oval shapes. ( An oval is correctly an egg-shape, wider at one end.)
