How long is the fence? Is it a chain link fence set in concrete with barbed wire on top? Is barbed wire needed for security? We need more details. Pics might help too?

You still haven't said how long the fence will be. May I ask what that fence is supposed to stop.? I could pass through that fence in 15 minutes with a large pair of snips.

i was planning on doing something similar to this kind of fence. i'm just concern on how long will it take me to finish since i have almost a total of 100m perimeter to be fenced

its supposed to be just a temporary fence. i just dont want the fence to be made of wood or something. this is only to secure the land from any illegal settlers.

I'd say 40 man hours so if you are working alone that would be 5 full days. That still doesn't take into account if there is a frost line, if you have an auger or a 1 bag mixer.

Lot of work and money for a temporary fence. If it were my land, a few steel fence posts driven around the perimeter with signs on them stating " No Trespassing AND IF YOU DO MY DOGS WILL EAT YOU"

Then install a perimeter underground dog fence and get two 100 pound Rottweiler dogs. :)

100 m straight takes xxx time.
100 m with 1 corner takes x time longer.
100 m with 2 corners takes twice xx as long for corner time.
100 m with 3 corners takes even longer - you get the picture?
Now let's say we add a gate or two. Well that'll take longer.
If you work twice as fast as the average person it'll only take half as long.:vs_laugh:
