4 board post and rail fence

Board Fence is usually a 3 or 4 board layout with 4 x 4 or 4 x 6 post assembled from either smooth or rough sawn pressure teated wood. Horizontal fence rails are typically full 1 inch thick by 6 inch wide lumber but can be conventional 2 x 6 lumber as purchased from a big  box store. Normal finished height is 48 inches, but a 4 board “post and rail” fence can be stretched up to 5 ft. tall without it looking odd.

BOARD FENCE; desired for it's rural look, charm, and structural integrity. This fence is very popular with owners of country mountain cabin getaways and accepted by their HOA / BOA representatives.

1x6 and 4x4 post and rail fence

3 and 4 board fencing maintains the country look of your rural property and blends into the natural surroundings. By adding a “wire field fence fabric” to the back side of the fence during construction, the field fence will serve as an effective deterrent to keep predators and wildlife off of your property and keep pets safely at home.

There are three types of field fencing that I routinely use on this type of fence for pet containment and I have attempted to explain the benefits of each one below.

2x4 welded wire

This is a 14 or 12.5 gauge galvanized light weight fabric with 2 inch wide by 4 inch high spaces between the wires. This is the least expensive of the field fence options.
This product is also available with a white, black, or green vinyl coated finish which can add a more polished look to the final outcome.

The down side to this product is how easily it cuts when hit with a weed eater. This is not a concern when the fence runs through a wooded area and no grass trimming or fence line clearing of weeds is required.

2x4 woven horse fence

This is a 12.5 gauge heavy duty fence fabric designed with 2 x 4 inch spacing to prevent a horses hooves from slipping through and getting trapped or hurt.

Notice how the individual wires are fastened together with another piece of wire actually woven around each junction where the vertical and horizontal wires intersect, this woven union creates a very strong fence fabric.

This wire fence will last for many, many years.

4x4 woven lamb fence

Also known as goat or sheep fence, it is the same heavy duty construction as the woven horse wire with larger 4 inch square spacing between the wires. This is more than adequate for most medium to large dogs, perhaps the holes are a little large for the smallest of dogs who could slip through a 4 inch square.

This fence will keep coyotes and most predatory animals away and is the most affordable of all the fence options shown here.

Again, this type of fence fabric should last over 100 years.

Automatic Gate Opener Wireless Keypad

This fence has a solar powered BFT automatic gate operator installed with the optional wireless keypad anchored to a wood post centered between two other wooden post that are serving as stanchions to protect the keypad from accidental damage from cars, trucks, tractors, and construction equipment.

A metal tubular gate was used as a frame to which the wood gate was attached to keep the gate from sagging, warping, twisting, and falling apart due to sun and weather conditions, plus the metal framework gave a solid base to which the automatic gate opener actuators were attached (far right).

To the left and above are examples of board fences using a “smooth on all 4 sides” wood for all of the elements in these fences. Below are examples of the same type of 4 rail board fence using rough sawn wood to build the fence.

All fence post are secured in concrete, and all of the wood members are fastened together using corrosive resistant wood screws to prevent the sun and weather from pulling the fence apart over time

4x4 Woven Lamb / Goat wire field fence fabric

Below and to the right I used Lamb / Goat wire which has a 4” x 4” opening between the woven wire strands. This wire comes in 330 foot rolls and is much more economical, but just as strong as the other woven wire fabric like horse wire. Unless you have really small dogs or you are trying to keep rabbits out of your garden, this less expensive 4” x 4” goat wire is ideal for fencing in a medium to large size dog and forbidding entry to predators.

Rough Sawn Pressure Treated true 1” X 6” horizontal fence rails and 4” X 6” post with 1x4 appearance boards covering all seams. This fence has 4 x 4 Lamb / Goat field fence fabric stretched tightly and fastened to the inside. This fence can be left in this natural condition or stained black or brown.

PVC Vinyl Fencing verses Wood Fenceing: PVC fence will last forever against the sun and weather, but it does become brittle with time and it will mildew and require occasional pressure washing to keep it clean. It is very expensive and ecologically unfriendly, but in the right situation, it is a very good long term investment. If you can get past the high cost of the building materials, installation cost are the same as a wood fence and the fence will last forever - it will not rot like wood.
