Giddiup can advise on the most suitable solution, but things to consider are what "look" you are trying to achieve, and what are you trying to keep in or keep out. Often the answer to these questions defines the number of rails, the necessity of incorporating wire or netting and the addition of electric outriggers.
Additionally a decision needs to be made on the type of timber to be used. Some of the options available include Ironbark, Stringybark and a new Creo impregnated timber. Be aware not all timbers are the same. Good quality timber is uniform in texture and colour and is sourced from trees that have had time to mature. Good quality timber is very durable and hard.
It is also ethically important to consider if the timber yard you are buying from supports sustainable timber practices. As the demand for wood continues to increase Giddiup believes it is essential that the practices involved in managing forests are continually reviewed and researched. Giddiup fully supports sustainable timber practices when constructing post and rails fences.
Some of the common post and rail terms and styles are:
- One Rail with netting
- Two Rail
- Three Rail
- Round Rail
