How Much Wire Do I Need for an In-Ground Fence?

Each in-ground fence kit comes with 500 feet of 20-gauge boundary wire, which is enough to cover most layouts for a 1/3 acre yard. If your yard is larger than 1/3 acre or you want to customize pet-free zones within the containment area, you can purchase additional Boundary Wire & Flag Kits.
