What is Post and Rail Fencing?

Post and rail is a generic term used to describe a fencing system that uses a solid timber post with horizontal rails fastened between the posts.

Sturdy post and rail fencing is a very simple, effective and easily installed style of open fencing. This rustic fencing style is often often seen at horse farms and around pastures.

Post and rail fencing can be used to provide demarcation of smaller areas of land or gardens, or protection for features such as flowerbeds or young trees, while still allowing open views.

Post and rail can also be combined with wire mesh, chain link or barbed wire to provide an open but secure fencing system for agricultural applications.

 

Where is Post and Rail Fencing Used?

Post and rail fencing is a fence style that uses perpendicular posts driven into the ground with two or more horizontal rails attached between the posts.

Post and rail fencing is constructed either with morticed fence posts with fence rails simply slotted into the mortices, or with solid fence posts with fence rails nailed onto the posts.

This method of fence construction makes it ideal for a run of fencing where the ground is sloping or uneven. As the posts are all inserted at the same height from the ground, the rails can follow the slope of the land between each set of posts.
