Cedar split rail fence is one of the most cost effective styles for defining boundaries, decorating property, and fencing in livestock and horses. Split rail fencing is also one of, if not the easiest style of fence to install making it an ideal project for the do-it-yourselfer. Posts are typically set directly in the ground approx. 30" deep without any concrete. A tamping bar is used to compact the dirt around the post while backfilling.
Cedar Split Rail Fencing is naturally resistant to pests, fungus and other forces of decay. In fact, posts driven into the ground can last 15 years or more without any sort of protection. Rails above ground can last even longer than that. So, you can count on your cedar split rail fence lasting at least 15 years, if not longer. Some species can last up to 30 years. Few other materials on the market can measure up to that.
Cedar is very environmentally friendly! It’s a natural product that will ultimately break down and return to the earth, and its durability is completely natural, not due to chemical treatments. That means you don’t have to worry about chemicals leeching out of the wood into the surrounding soil – the wood’s own natural tannins, resins and oils will keep it looking great for years to come.
One of the most rustic fence designs, strongly representative of the simple country life, split rail fencing is composed of just that: two or three split rails, inserted into two equally rough-finished wooden posts. The posts are secured in the ground with or without concrete. Perhaps, the simplest fence design, it is mainly used as a border fence to aesthetically separate different areas. This fence provides a defined division of areas without obstructing the view.
