As an investor, you would agree with me when i say there are so many things you have recently learnt from this blog ranging from topics relating to buying and securing a piece of land in Nigeria, fencing as well as how to calculate the Number of Plots in One Acre of land in Nigeria.
Before we estimate the number of blocks required to fence an Acre of land in Nigeria, it is important that we understand the system of land allocation and the total area of our plot which is dependent on the dimensions.
How Many Blocks to fence a plot of land In Nigeria?
In time past, we have estimated the number of blocks required to fence plots of land of different sizes, so an answer to this question would be based on the size of plot involved
Size of An Acre of Land
There are different sizes of acre in Nigeria and this is entirely based on the system of land allocation existing in the area from which you are buying your plot.
50 By 100 System Of Allocation
According to recent findings, we discovered that an Acre of land could actually have 8.7 Plots on it which means provision must be made for 3600 blocks depending on the height of fence as requested by the client!
Therefore, lets assume we bought an Acre of land in an area or community where the system of land acquisition specifies 50 by 100 as the standard for a plot of land.
Let us also assume your fence is required to be 12 Blocks high with each pillar standing 6 Blocks apart.
If your project meets the conditions above, then it means you would be needing about 3600 blocks for each plot and since there are 8.7 plots making an Acre in the 50 by 100 system of allocation, you would be needing some 3600 x 8.7 plots
Let’s multiply to get a total number of blocks to fence one Acre of land in 50 by 100 system of allocation
3600 x 8.7 = 31,320 Blocks
Therefore provision must be made for 31,320 blocks in order to completely fence an Acre of land to a height of 2.74 meters In Nigeria
