**Dimensions Of An Acre**

### What is the length and width of half a hectare of land?

One acre is 43,560 square feet or 4,046.85 meters 2, or 1/2 acre = 21,780 square feet (feet 2)

An acre is a unit of area, so when added to 43,560 feet 2, length and width can be anything.

147.58 feet x 147.58 feet = 21,779.85 feet 2

100 feet x 217.8 feet = 21,780 feet 2

5 feet x 4,356 feet = 21,780 feet 2

Etc.

1/2 acre covers 21,780 square feet. Find the length of each side you want to encircle and divide by 8 then determine the number of planks 6 feet high based on the width of each board. . Multiply the number of boards required for the length by the number of boards required for the eighth number. It should be close enough.
