Hello Cherylt,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

It all depends on what width you are going to use. Dog eared pickets come in 3 ½”, 5 ½”, and 7 ½” so the coverage will be different for each one.

 

So for 200’ you would need approximately 685 @ 3 ½”, 436 @ 5 ½”, and 320 @ 7 ½”.

 

26 - 4” x 4” x 10’ post (without a gate)

 

50 - 2” x 4” x 8’ rails

 

39 bags of concrete approximately 1 and a half bags per post

 

screws or nails

 

Here are a links to our fencing how to center. It has more about fencing than you will ever need to know.

 

I hope this helps you out with the amount of materials you will need for the 200’ fence.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
