Did some several years ago, all rails, no netting. Seem to remember them taking a LOT longer than we thought, fine if it's just a throw it together job but to get the spacings, heights and angles right took a while. Remember as its square all the posts have to look right from ALL angles.

i would be charging something like that,2 blokes would need to get at least 10 done a day to make half decent money, i would go with £3.50 p/m labour, and 10% on top of material cost.

£100 a unit all in (£50-55 for materials). 2 men would do well to be completing a unit an hour with a post knocker by the time you have off loaded what you need and measured up at each location. It's not like doing a 300m straight run.

 

5 mins per post, 5 mins to put the 4 rails on, 5 mins for the mesh, 5 mins for the wire and 5 mins to get to the next one is your hour.
