Considerations

The cost of a wood fence depends on whether you are building the fence yourself or are planning to hire a professional to do the installation. The cost of hiring a professional depends on the hours required to complete the job, any landscaping required to install the fence and the cost of product delivery. You can save up to 50 per cent if you do the installation yourself.

Size

The size of the fence and the quantity of wood needed can drastically affect the overall costs. For example, a 300-foot-long wood fence costs £2,925 to £3,575, while the same fence for an acre of land costs upwards of £8,775, according to Cost Helper.

Geography

To ensure that the fence is stable and of even height, you may need to remove large rocks, small trees and yard debris from the fence's path. Save money by prepping the area prior to hiring a professional to install the fence.

Potential

Expect to pay around £5 to £9 per foot for a wooden fence, reports Service Magic.
