Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I am looking into fencing a 1.5 acre lot. The lot is square, what I need is an estimate for the number of feet around the perimeter, not the amount of square feet. Is there a way to do this?

If you lot is exactly square, its side is equal to the square root of its area. Therefore, the sum of all 4 sides (its perimeter) is 4 times square root of the lot area.
