Question from Bob:

If you have a piece of property that is 265.15 wide, how many feet deep to make a 2 ac plot and how deep to make a 3 ac plot. Thank You

Hi Bob.

An acre is 43560 square feet. So if your property is 265.15 wide, then each 43560/265.15 = 164.28 feet of depth is an acre.

So 2 acres would be 328.56 ft deep, etc.
