The garden has to be 36-ft by 39-ft. 150-ft of fence will just enclose it,

and the area is 1,404 square feet.

If the length didn't have to be 3-ft more than the width, then he could make it

37.5-ft square. The same 150-ft of fence would enclose it, but the area would

be 1,406.5 square feet ... a full 0.16%, or 2.5 square feet, more.
