Puzzle n°38(**) - A Square Cattery Homepage  

The first signs of spring are not quite yet there, but I start thinking about it. So I started to build a secure enclosure in my garden, so that my cats will be able to breathe fresh air and bathe in the sun safely.

My garden is a square with 30m sides (hence its total area is 900 m²).

I didn't want the enclosure to touch the walls,
and I have a few trees and bushes which I also wanted to keep out.
Hence the enclosure should be the green area shown at right.
I drew strings along the red lines who join each corner of my garden to the third of an opposite side, like on the map.

What is the area of my cattery enclosure ?

... I'm giving up ...
