1) It doesn't look even but that could just be the person who made it fault
I got to with Aldrin on this ( sorry squeak) But like If you added a vertical line down the middle and a horizontal line across the middle all the pecies would be the same.

2)O.K. This is really confusing....

3)Do I know this Tom Terrific? Oh well. It would help if I did.
He could use a pice of string and stretch it across the length of the garden then fold the string in half and then mark the spot to find the spot.
