Western Red Cedar Split Rail

In certain parts of the United States, there are styles of fence that are more popular in that specific region. Most notable of these regional styles are the post-and-rail or split rail styles. In some regions, these styles are made with wood that can also be used in a variety of styles. However, in other regions, there are specific types of wood used only for specialty styles.

Typical specialty fence styles are Split Rail or Sawn Rail fencing in a 3-rail or 4-rail configuration. These fence systems are open-style, allowing vision through the fence while marking borders or perimeters. Wire mesh can be added to these fence styles for animal and pet containment.
