It will cost you $60 LF for 6x6 post or $50 LF for 4x4 post. 6' height. Hope that answers your question.

Hi Chris,

My suggestion would be to look into post hole contractors. There's one in London a friend of mine used that charged $25/post to dog and set the post. They supplied concrete you supply posts. After that you're looking at a linear foot costing. Typically you shouldn't expect to pay more than between $1.50-$2.50 a linear foot. It may be more based on your specific job and location.

I'm just reading the last response from Tim, his friend setting posts for $25 each might be making $10-$14 per posts to dig and plumb them up in a straight line. The $1.50-$2.50 a linear foot, the boards themselves are $3.14 each at 5.5 inch with so that doesn't come close to paying for the materials.

It would cost somewhere between $50-$60 per linear foot for a pressure treated fence. I recommend you to call fencing contractor for the site inspection. After inspection, the fencing contractor would provide you with the exact estimate for the fence.
