Measure Yards For Fence
So, you're ready to buy dog fencing but you aren't sure how many dog fence rolls you will need. Luckily, you have us to help.
It's best to use a tape measure to help determine the size of your yard; but if you don't have one on-hand; then it's best to walk the perimeter of the yard [ or area you wish to fence]. Take normal walking strides and divide the number by 2 or 2.5 to get the total linear footage you need for your dog fence.
This will help you determine how many fence rolls you need. Additionally, mark spots where your fence corners will be. Then, keep in mind that your fence line posts will be every 10-15 feet apart from each other. Lastly, mark your fence ends where the fence will end at a tree, gate or house.
If you still aren't sure how to build DIY fence, consult a local fence installer for precise measurements.
