I am looking into fencing a 1.5 acre lot. The lot is square, what I need is an estimate for the number of feet around the perimeter, not the amount of square feet. Is there a way to do this?

If you lot is exactly square, its side is equal to the square root of its area. Therefore, the sum of all 4 sides (its perimeter) is 4 times square root of the lot area.
