You will need to work out the approximate area of your garden or border and make a note of it, as you’ll need to indicate this on your questionnaire when you make your payment. We only need to know roughly enough to get you in the right size price band. The mygardn team will check the garden size when they receive your survey to ensure you are in the correct bracket.
For simple regular shaped gardens, just multiply the length and width of your garden together to get it’s area as shown below.
For a simple garden shape
Length 12 metres, Width 6 metres, 12×6 = 72 metres squared. Your garden would be in the 50-100m squared price bracket.
For a more complicated garden shape
Should your garden be an irregular shape simply count up the number of full 1metre squares your garden occupies on your plan. For any squares that are partly used, roughly add these pieces together to get a final figure. You don’t have to be exact as we will double check the area once your plan is submitted.
For Border Planting plans
If you are requesting a Border Planting plan, we only need to know the rough total size of the planting areas. Use either of the methods above to calculate the area of your borders or flower beds and use this figure in metres squared on your submission.
Make a note of your garden or border area ready to enter on your questionnaire when you submit your survey. If you need examples, please send us a message on FB Messenger or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
