Number One in Split Rail Fence


$14 per rail







Snake Rail Fence is the original "split" rail fence first seen in colonial times and still in use today at historic sites like Gettysburg and Valley Forge Historic Parks. If you want the look and feel or Early America this fence is for you.

Our snake rail fence is split, not saw cut, for a true rustic appearance, and is pressure treated for longevity.  Rails are 11' long and not tapered like traditional split rail.

To calculate how many rails you need, figure 7' per section to allow for the angle and overlap.  Heights are as follows:

    Approximately 3' high use 5 rails per section


    Approximately 3 1/2' high use 6 rails per section


    Approximately 4' high (historic height) use 7 rails per section
        

    Add 2 additional rails per section if you want full  size cross braces like the first picture below.

Installation is easy--no holes to dig or special tools required.  Just start stacking, measuring 7 linear feet per section.  It is best to stack them on a flat stone at each joining point to help preserve their useful life.

Note:  This is a special order item and generally takes 1 - 2 weeks to order
