are you planning on installing yourself?


depends on how many corners and gate posts you need?


when i'm buying to install straight runs i budget 3 pound a metre for mesh top and bottom wire stabs every 6ft all the staples etc


strainers are 12 pounds ish each...


these prices are central scotland where we have a great supplier.

Ring around all your local suppliers, get a few quotes then use the quotes to see if you can screw the others down a bit.
