    Well, you need 2 posts, a single wooden panel and probably two rails.

    Dig two holes for the posts, mix and fill with some form of concrete, insert the posts and wait for it to go off. Fix the railings to the posts and the panel to the railings. Probably about £75.

    If someone tells you that panel fences need rails, find someone who knows what they are doing. I have never seen a panel fence put up with rails.

    In answer to he OP, there really is no way of telling as there are so many variables. You'd be hard pushed to find anyone half decent who would want to mess about with a one panel job anyway. They will all price it as if they don't want it. All of my fencing clients, charge between 80 and 90 quid per metre, but that's usually close board fencing.

    I suppose if i can find the right postst to hold the panel(s) in then i can do it myself, just need to make sure its wind proof and not going to get blown over

    Yes, anyone with an average amount of sense and the ability to use a spade can put up a single panel.

    I wonder if the OP made a mistake when they said 'single panel fence' as a single panel is hardly a fence, is it?

    I presumed he had a fence with one panel in need of replacement, but that's just a presumption on my part. It's not particularly clear is it.

    look for a gardener - I use one from time to time to replace panels. they are usually happy to do a job near an existing customer for a fair price.
