Step 1: Make First Arc

Plot Yard Boundaries

Set the compass to the first measurement you took from the house. Put the point where you measured from on the house, and draw an arc.

Reset the compass to the second measurement. Put the point where you measured from on the house, and draw a second arc to cross the first.

Step 3: Connect the Dots
