Ranch Rail Fence
A Ranch Rail fence, also known as board fence, is becoming much more popular throughout Colorado. Ranch Rail fences look equally at home in city neighborhoods, country mountain settings, or large farms to keep livestock and pets within their property borders.
A typical Ranch Rail, 2, 3 or 4 Rail system, will typically be made with a 4×4, 4×6 or 4×8 Cedar post and will typically be made with a standard 2×6 or 2×8 Cedar boards for its rails. We keep a wide variety of posts lengths in stock. We can also supply weld wire that can be attached to your fence to keep small pets or animals in and predators out.
How long does it take to install a Ranch Rail fence compared to a Split Rail fence?
The time to install a fence really depends on the size of project and what style of Ranch Rail fence you prefer. A Split Rail fence has standard posts with standard rails, whereas a Ranch Rail can have a 2, 3, 4, or more planks (or rails) and it can have it crisscross or just plain across. You do have more design control with a Ranch Rail versus a Split Rail so the time that it takes to install is all determined case by case.
