Why Choose a Pine Post and Rail Fence?
A rural fence is a versatile investment for any rural landowner.
Whether you're looking to protect your family, livestock or property (or all three!), a post and rail fence can provide the perfect solution.
When choosing a fence, you want one that is both durable and attractive. A pine post and rail fence fits this bill perfectly. Pine is a beautiful wood that is also very strong and resistant to rot. Rail fences are also built to last, with their vertical rails providing great strength and stability.
Practicality aside, it’s the visual appeal of post and rail fencing that we love. This fence defines space while providing unrestricted vistas - ideal for rural properties with rolling hills, but also suitable for suburban areas where you don't want to feel hemmed in.

Nothing gives your rural property that 'finished' look like a well-designed fence. And when it comes to rural fences, timber is hard to beat. Not only does it look great, but it's also durable and easy to work with.
Once installed, there is next to no maintenance, with all rails slotting snugly into the pre-mortised posts. To ensure you will not get sagging rails in the future, we recommend 2.4m rail spans.
You can choose to stain or paint your pine post & rail fence which will significantly prolong the life of the timber or it can be left raw for added character.
