### How much does it cost to fence one acre of land?/ What will be the cost of fencing per acre?

Now, let us find out the answer to one of the FAQs "What will be the cost of fencing per acre?"

My response is, ðŸ‘‰ This is a non-answerable wrong question.

The reason is, the area of any land does not define its perimeter. The cost differs from one land to another having the same measured area.

I will illustrate this with the following 2 examples.

1. Land no 1:

Given data:

Length of  side AB = CD = 208 ft.

Length of side AD = BC = 209.42 ft.

Area of rectangular land

= [209.42 ft. × 208 ft.]

= 43,560 sq ft. = 1 acre

[ As 1acre = 43,560 sq ft.]

The perimeter of land no 1.

= [side AB + side BC + side CD + side DA]

= [208 ft. + 209.42 ft. + 208 ft. + 209.42 ft.]

= 834.84 ft.

2. Land no 2:

Given data:

Length of  side AB = CD = 80 ft.

Length of side AD = BC = 544.5 ft.

Area of rectangular land

= [544.5 ft. × 80 ft.]

= 43,560 sq ft. = 1 acre

[ As 1acre = 43,560 sq ft.]

The perimeter of land no 2.

= [side AB + side BC + side CD + side DA]

= [80 ft. + 544.5 ft. + 80 ft. + 544.5 ft.]

= 1249 ft.

Now, let us consider installing a barbed-wire fence of the same height for both types of land.

Before proceeding further, go through the articleðŸ‘‡

ðŸ‘€. Estimation & costing of barbed wire fencing for land./ Calculating the cost of barbed wire fencing for the land. (part 4).

1. Cost of fencing for land 1

= [ perimeter  × fence cost/ r ft.]

= [ 834.84 ft.  × 114.65/-]

= INR 95,714.4/-

2. Cost of fencing for land 2

= [ perimeter  × fence cost/ r ft.]

= [ 1249 ft.  × 114.65/-]

= INR 1,43,197.85/-

Note: The fencing cost / r ft. is taken from the above-linked article.

The difference in the fencing cost of land 1 & land 2

= [1,43,197.85 - 95, 714.4]

= 47,483.45/-

i.e. whopping 49.6% difference in the fencing cost of the 1-acre of land having different dimensions.

I hope you understood why we cannot answer this question.

Thank you for going through this article. Have a good day ðŸ˜„.
