Use this fence calculator to easily calculate the total number of blocks you need to fence your plot of land. Works for all size of land. You can use the tool for 50 x 100, 60 x 120, 100 x 100 , an acre , hectare or whatever the size of your plot is.
Calculate the number of blocks for your piece of land
How is it calculated?
Here’s how we arrived at our answer
Assuming there is no gate (which is very uncommon) and you need to fence the whole plot of land
We use the following formula:
Perimeter of the land (POL) = 2(Length + breadth). Take note that the result is in feet.
To convert to inches we use the standard unit : 1 feet = 12 inch
Total size of land in inches (TSOL) = POL x 12
To get the total number of blocks that will go round the plot : 1 block = 18 inches
Number of blocks = TSOL ÷ 18
Now , to get the number of coaches (how tall you want the fence to be )
Bear in my that the 7 feet = 9 coaches
The total number of blocks = Number of blocks x number of coaches
For the fence without gate , the only difference is
Perimeter of the land (POL) = 2(Length + breadth) – 12
12 stands for the standard size of most gates which is 12ft
What if I don’t know the size of my land in feet ?
You can use the table below as guide
|Land||Measurement in Feet|
|1 Plot||50 x 100 or 60 x 120|
|1/2 Plot||25 x 50 or 30 x 60|
|1 Acre||66 x 660|
|1 Hectare||328 x 328|
