how do i cut a perfect circle in centre of lawn as i'm planting a small tree in it?



Knock in a small post in the centre of the circle. Tie a string to the post, just about 4 inches above the ground. Tie the other end of the string, the length of which is the radius of the circle, to an edging tool or spade, at the bottom of the shaft. Then go around, pushing the tool into the lawn. Remove the post and dig the outside circle deeper, and remove the turf. Then hey presto you have cut out the circle.
