Master Halco Wood Post and Rail Fence
Post and rail wood fencing consists of posts attached to round, square, board, or split rails. Post and rails are usually the same style, giving the fence a nice uniform look. An open design allows these fences to be used for animal containment without blocking a view. This design is excellent for perimeter fencing, because the rails flow with the terrain. Painting a post & rail fence can create a look of rural life and simple elegance. Topping the posts or using finials can add a touch of sophistication.
Your local area will determine which species of wood are readily available. The primary species or groups of wood used in post and rail fencing are:
  • Northern White Cedar
  • Treated
