For the second wall, use a power stretcher. A power stretcher is adjustable in length to reach from one wall toward the opposite wall. It has teeth, similar to those on the knee-kicker to pull the carpet tight. Use a carpet spreader in conjunction with the power spreader to tuck the carpet down. The carpet spreader works like the stair tool, but is wider, to match the width of the power stretcher. Use the power stretcher at a slight angle to the wall. Then, cut the carpet from the back and tuck it under the gully.
