Allotment Measuring & Marking Out

Measuring & Marking Out plots is essential as plots come in all shapes and sizes. When you first acquire the plot it is a good idea to measure your plot and plan what will go where.
The location of crops, compost bins or shed can be critical when taking into account progress of the sun during the day and the prevailing winds.
You also do not want to be moving plant waste and compost any further than you have too, so positioning the compost bins is key.
Once planned, marking out lines for crops will ensure your seed drills are straight and you can get the most out of the plot with the correct spacing between rows.
Careful planning and measurement will help make your plot as productive as it can be given its position.
