How much wire do I need?

How much boundary wire should I get?

The best way to figure out how much boundary wire is to walk around the intended boundary wire path and count your steps.  Multiply the number of steps by three and you have a good approximation of the amount of boundary wire you need in feet.

Most systems come with 500 feet of boundary wire, which can cover about one-third of an acre.  You can buy extra boundary wire in 500 foot lengths.

You can also get a rough idea of the amount of boundary wire you need from the following table:

Area (acres) Wire (feet) Area (acres) Wire (feet)
1/3 500 11 3500
1/2 1000 15 4000
1 1000 20 4500
2 1500 25 5000
3 2000 30 5500
4 2000 36 6000
5 2000 43 6500
6 2500 51 7000
7 2500 59 7500
8 3000 67 8000
9 3000 76 8500
10 3000 86 9000

You can also get an estimate  of the amount of boundary wire by taking the area you want to cover (in acres), multiplying by 40,000; taking the square root; and then multiplying the result by four.    This gives you the approximate amount of boundary wire you require in feet.
