Types of Post and Rail Fences
Post and rail fences typically use wood in their simple but sturdy designs, which gives you some flexibility in deciding what type of wood to use for your personalized fence. Here are few popular options here in Lowell:
- Yellow pine: Pine is an excellent choice if you plan to paint or stain your fence.
- Spruce: Spruce is the most cost-effective option for initial installation but will require more maintenance.
- Natural cedar: Cedar is a popular option for its natural pest- and rot-resistance. It also ages well, fading to a rustic silver.
In addition to choosing a fencing material, you can also choose from several different styles. Aside from the traditional style with a choice between two, three, or four rails, we also offer Old English post and rail fences and split rail fences. Our fence installation experts will work with you to create a custom design that perfectly suits your property and needs.
Why Post and Rail? The Benefits of Basic Fencing
While post and rail fencing does not completely enclose your property, it provides clear boundary-definition and better visibility than other fence styles.
A post and rail fence also has a much lower upfront cost than many other fencing types as it uses less material and is easier to install. As a result, this style is particularly useful for properties that need fences around large areas such as smaller ranches.
The open design of post and rail fences minimizes sightline obstructions, too, letting pedestrians and passing drivers appreciate the natural beauty surrounding your property. It’s an attractive option that will increase the value of your home. If you need to prevent small animals from passing through, you can add mesh wire.
