Farm & Ranch
Split rail fences offer a few different options for both property definition and animal environments. Cedar split rail has an old western feel to it and is available in 3' tall 2 rail as well as 4' tall 3 rail. Treated split rail is available in a few treatment color options.
Standard 3 rail treated split rail fences consist of 6x6" posts set in 2' of concrete and 2x8" rails using 5/16" 5" lag screws to secure them. Wire is sandwiched between the posts and rails for added security. 2x4" welded wire is typically added to split rail fences to keep wanted animals in and unwanted pests out.
Gates are built to fit the gate opening using the same materials as the fence to maintain a consistent look. Picket gates, round tube stock gates and ornamental steel gates are popular gate options as well.
