Fencing costs can vary depending on factors like length, height, and the material you choose. This calculator will provide you with an approximate cost to make your planning easier.

### Formula

The cost calculation is straightforward. We take into account the length and height of the fence you want, along with the material you choose. The formula is as follows:

### Example

Let’s say you want a wooden fence that is 100 feet long and 6 feet high. The estimated cost will be calculated as:
