**What Will Be The Cost Of Fencing Per Acre ?**

Now, let us find out the answer for one of the FAQs **“What will be the cost of fencing per acre?”**

My response is, 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:__

__Given data:__

Length of side AB = CD = 208 ft.

Length of side AD = BC = 209.42 ft.

Area of rectangular land

= [length × breadth]

= [209.42 ft. × 208 ft.]

= 43,560 sq ft. = **1 acre**

**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:__

__Given data:__

Length of side AB = CD = 80 ft.

Length of side AD = BC = 544.5 ft.

Area of rectangular land

= [length × breadth]

= [544.5 ft. × 80 ft.]

= 43,560 sq ft. = **1 acre**

**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.

(part 4).

Let us find out the material & labor cost for barbed wire fencing for the land.

**Material cost:**

**Sl.No. Description Quantity Rate Unit Amount**

1. RCC fencing poles 40.0 270 no. 10,800=00

2. Boulder for packing 0.42417 1400 cum 593=83

3. Cement bags for

concreting 6.837 400 bag 2734=80

4. Sand for

concreting 0.3563 2200 cum. 783=86

5. Aggregate for

concreting 0.4751 1850 cum. 878=93

6. Barbed wire for

fencing 37.88 150 kg. 5682=00

Total material cost for fencing = **INR 21,473.42**

Labor cost:

**Sl.No. Description Quantity Rate Unit Amount**

1. Earthwork excavation

for the fencing pole 1.27251 800 cum 1017=60

2. Installation and

concreting the pole 40 120 no. 4800=00

3. Tying fencing wire 840 3 meter 2520=00

Total labor cost for fencing =**INR 8337.00**

The total cost of fencing the land

= [total material cost + labor cost]

= [ 21473.42 + 8337]

= ** INR 29810.42 **

**What is Gravity Dam?**

Cost per running ft.

= [total cost ÷ perimeter of the land in ft.]

= [29810.42 ÷ 260 ft.]

= **114.65/R.FT.**

= 376.64 / running meter.

**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/-**

**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.
