Wood Fence Construction
stillFor all the modern solutions out there, traditional wood will always be a number one choice for many of us; because as well as a livelihood, a ranch is also a home and as well as the imperative of keeping your animals contained, you also want to live in a place that makes your heart sing every time you step out the door or come home after a trip away. Not sure about whether wooden posts are practical for your needs? Call us in and we'll take into account considerations such as animal control, privacy, maintenance, and security before discussing your options and if it's still wood you want, then it's wood you get.
You already know what rail fencing looks like because you've noticed it and loved it every time you've passed by it. Two or three horizontal wooden rails run between vertical wooden fence posts, it looks like every cowboy ranch you've ever seen in the Westerns, and for that alone people still want it. Where aesthetics are a priority, such as the front of a ranch that greets the public, or a stables area where you bring customers to view your stock, there's no doubt that rail fencing is the way to go; but you may want to talk to us about preservatives and maintenance to minimize the long term costs of this beautiful fencing option.
Picket fencing is never going to keep in large livestock, but we understand that any given ranch will have a variety of different areas that serve different functions and that means they have different needs. We're often asked if we can combine ornamental and functional fencing for those areas where livestock and home meet and the answer is that yes of course we can. We can craft whatever fence you need, elegantly, and practically.
Once upon a time nobody asked what wood was treated with, as long as it resulted in lower ownership costs, but increasingly people are aware that the chemicals used to treat fence posts will make their way into the soil and that can be harmful for themselves, their family, crops, animals, and in the case of some of our customers their organic certification. So we're sensitive to that and can use wood treated in environmentally sensitive ways or use woods such as locust wood that are naturally resistant to weathering without being chemically treated.
The beauty of a tailored fence is that we can craft it to suit your needs and the unique topography of your terrain. No matter how bumpy, how rocky, or how irregular, we can craft a wooden fence that will sit perfectly on it, do the job it was intended to do, and look fantastic – all for a price that suits you. So give us a call and let's talk wooden fencing.
