Seems so much at first glance. Better collect another quotation.

What sort of well is he digging with N150,000?
260 bags of cement, maybe I don't understand what you are describing because a fence near water will not take as much as that.

I may be wrong but Enugu prone to erosion than water log. The main problem with this is that the back of the land is about 50 mins from a body of water if it rains the surface run off is much and might wash the fence away if not well built.

How many plots of land are you talking about?

In regards to the price of materials he quoted, it is fair; no inflation but I can't ascertain the quantity
