Consider how much to spend on a fence based on the purpose it will serve. Decide whether the fence is for privacy, security or for looks. If you're buying a fence for looks, you probably won't need to spend as much as you would for a privacy or security fence. For example, a 6-foot high cedar wood privacy fence can cost around £3,510, while a 300-linear foot chain-link fence costs around £1,625, according to


The material of the fence is a large portion of the price. Vinyl or chain-link fences won't cost as much as high-quality wood fences or stone fences. Each type of fence has its positives and negatives. For example, if you need a durable fence, spend a little more money and go with a brick or stone fence. If you need a fence to contain your small dog in the yard, an inexpensive chain link fence will suffice.


The more fencing you need, the more you're going to spend. It's a smart idea to buy some extra fencing in case some of it gets damaged during installation.


When looking at fences, consider additional costs. These costs can include gates for vehicles, decorations such as pillars, or excavation and installation fees.
