Split Rail Fence

A Straight Up Fence Company, Serving Denver Metro and Surrounding Areas

With the help of A Straight Up Fence Company in Denver, a split rail fence can frame in a larger yard, as well as help maintain your view. And if you live on a corner lot where the city requires that you provide an open sight line for traffic, a split rail fence is the way to go. This type of fence can even keep pets and livestock in and predators out using a 2″x4″ rectangle welded wire in heights of 3′ up to 5′. Split rail can also be built in a variety of designs, from traditional ranch to the distinguished look of a custom fence.

The Function and Beauty of Split Rail

A split rail fence is great for both ranches and farms, as well as suburban settings if you want a more rustic and casual feel. Made from logs split lengthwise into rails, these fences were once built using a stacking method in place of hard to find hardware. These days, trimmed to fit cedar rails are inserted into posts with notches (mortises), which has proven to be a sturdier system. As for fence design, it’s quite flexible and can be customized with different rail styles along with beveled posts.

The Right Gate for a Split Rail Fence

Gates to go with your split rail fence come in all varieties. The most common choice is a picket-style walk gate, but we can also build a gate to match the rest of the fence. Drive gates are often a priority for customers who need to get vehicles and equipment into the yard and come with several options to choose from. If you have horses, a gate can be made using a lightweight steel tubing that works great with your split rail fence posts. We can also fabricate a custom wrought iron gate to match any design you choose.
