Wooden Split Rail Fences For Your Yard
Split rail fences come in various sizes. They can be made with three rails or two per section. Sometimes, they are fitted with poultry wire to provide additional protection from wildlife or to keep pets contained. Usually most split rail fences are made from cedar because of its ability to be easily split as well as its resistance to rot. Historically these fences were made from American Chestnuts but because of chestnut blight these trees became extinct and so are no longer used. However, cedar has proven to be a beautiful wood that will compliment any landscape design. Split rail fences can also give you more of a sense of security. Although not as private as many other types of fences, a split rail fence still provides a barrier in which to discourage potential thieves from stealing your hard earned property. The use of wire fencing will also help where this matter is concerned. Without a fence your home will be open and tempting to just about every type of robber so even it you are worried about the cost of building your new split rail fence, in some way you can’t afford not to build it.
Split rail fences can be build relatively easy and even on the rockiest or hardest locations. The process starts with a ten foot log that is split in half over and over again until the rails that are left are of a usable size. These rails are then arranged in a self supporting zig-zag pattern that not only does not need post dug in the ground to keep the fence from falling over, but also does not need nails or any other tools to build. It is also quite easy to set up as well as take down and move if needed.
