Split Rail Fence | Ranch Rail Fence | Post and Dowel Fence

Rail Fences, Split Rail Fences, or Post and Dowel Fences are an attractive, low maintenance, and economical way to mark your residential or commercial property line without obstructing your view. Cedar split rail fences are one of most popular and cost effective ways to define boundaries, decorate property, and fence in livestock and horses. Rail fences are very popular on farms and ranches and are also the fence choice of many Colorado HOAs. This type of fence can look as modern or as rustic as you like by making sure you choose the correct material and style. If you need to keep pets in and predators out, you can add a wire mesh to the fence for extra security. For a more modern look, vinyl is a clean, very uniform option that also has the benefit of coming in a variety of colors. If you love a little bit of rustic charm, Split Red Cedar timbers are the path you probably want to take. Split Red Cedar timbers look especially great on large, rural properties. Some of our favorite fences have been Cedar Split Rail fences we installed in the mountains. If you’d prefer a more neutral middle ground, cedar 2x4 rails are also a great option for ranch style fences. 
 
No matter what style you choose, a rail fence is an excellent option. The simple design doesn’t require some of the additional materials and hardware required for other type of fences making it more economical than a traditional wood privacy fence while still maintaining a level of charm not usually attributed to other economical options such as chain link.

Common Types of Rail Fences

Split Rail Fence

Split Rail Fences are extremely popular in Colorado--especially in more rural areas. These fences are made from split Western Red Cedar. The natural appearance of the lumber adds rustic charm while delineating your property (all without obstructing your view).

Cedar Ranch Rail Fence

Cedar Ranch Rail Fences are a more modern alternative to a classic split rail fence. They are built with dimensional lumber (cedar) as opposed to the split timbers used for a classic split rail fence. They are a great option for customers in the city or suburbs who don't want the full coverage of a privacy fence or the rustic look of split rail but still like the natural look of wood.

Cedar Ranch Rail with Wire Mesh Fence

Cedar Ranch Rail with Mesh Wire Fences are becoming a top choice for many HOA fences in Colorado. Like a typical Ranch Rail Fence, they are built with dimensional lumber. The thing that differentiates this fence from a classic ranch rail fence is the addition of wire mesh behind the rails. This wire mesh helps keep pets and kids in your yard and out of your neighbor's yard.
