    Here in Florida we have two rectangles , each consisting of 2.5 acres. They join back to back but only 1.25 overlaps, so it is the shape of a backward "Z" with a straight middle section, for a total of 5 acres. The other 2.5 acres is across the grass road. It is a rectangle. My new property in Tennessee is in the shape of the African continent with a rectangle on the southeast corner. Much more interesting. What shape is yours?

    Mine is on a cul de sac dead end and it is shaped like a piece of pie with the point bitten off where the turnaround is.

    Kind of a square. Kind of. With a big hollow in the middle and along one side, and a big hill along the back.

    A rectangle standing up. Starts out flat with a creek you cross and a pond over on the left corner, goes up a big hill, where there is a flat spot with our house on it in the back of the property.

    A long rectangle with a 'squiggle' for a driveway-we have a right of way leading up to the private road.

    prior farmette a rectangle- 4x1.5 acre squares in a row. XXXX Would've been nicer as a large square XX
    XX

    because we shared yard borders with 3 neighbors at house, field bordered by 3 other neighbors. Hope for square in future.

    Super long, skinny rectangle (exactly 11 times longer than it is wide). HATE the proximity of the neighbors, LOVE being able to take a long, straight walk on my own land! :)
