This is a good point and I left that detail out of my first post (post #7). That fence I do is chainlink.
If it were rail or plastic etc, it would take a lot less time than it does, but it at least included the fact that I have to cut the grass and crap back from the fence about an equal amount as the OP said he is expected to do, and is fairly rough and is banked at places all along it, so should give at least some idea of time.
