Residential Ranch Rail Fences in Atlanta

A wood ranch style fence is the ideal design for any property — whether you own a ranch or not. While it comes particularly in handy if you own large animals such as horses, cows, goats, sheep or something of that nature, a ranch rail fence is a beautiful finishing touch to the exterior of any property. Keeping your animals safe by making sure they stay on your property and away from the road, or other people’s property, is the primary function of a wood ranch rail fence. However, this type of fence is also a beautiful and eye-catching addition to any home, large or small.

Ranch Style Fence Designs

Like other types of fencing that Apex Fence Company specializes in, there are a number of different designs of wood ranch rail fence for you to choose from.

A ranch rail fence is the typical post and slat fence that is often seen decorating many of the horse farms in the area. Regal, charming and timeless in beauty, a ranch rail fence adds significant value — both monetary and aesthetic — to a property.

A ranch rail wire fence is much like a typical wood ranch rail fence, but it has the additional security of wire installed in between the slats. This makes it an ideal security fence for small animals as well as children.

A horse corral fence can be fashioned much as you desire. Let Apex Fence Company work with you to develop the right kind of horse corral fence to meet your needs.

A split rail fence is both beautiful and practical. Depending on your circumstances, your split rail fence can be functional or simply decorative. The choice is yours.

Details About a Ranch Style Fence

Typically, in the Southeast, including Georgia, a wood ranch rail fence is manufactured using pressure treated cedar and pine. Using this type of material usually gives you, the homeowner, at least 15 years of beautiful service that requires very little in the way of maintenance. In many cases, though, it is not unusual to see fences that are as old as 20 to 25 years still providing their owners with fantastic service. Both cedar and pressure treated pine are resistant to rot and bugs.

Cedar provides a vivid color and is popular among homeowners for this reason. It is imported to the Atlanta area from Canada and the Northwest. Pressure treated wood is grown as well as harvested locally in the Southeast so it is both cost effective and readily available in the Atlanta area.

Client Testimonials
  • I called four fence companies. Brian called back the same day and was out 1 week later to build my fence. He did a great job at a reasonable price. I have referred my neighbors and recommend his service to all.


  • Carl from Apex picked up immediately on the fence types we wanted and gave us very clear options. Their pricing was competitive, installation was done in two days and when we made a mistake on payment (we overpaid) they were quick catch the mistake and send us a refund. It was a good experience from start to finish.


  • Apex Fence is top notch. They are highly trained professionals and response time was impressive. I would recommend them for installation / repair service for both residential and commercial.


  • Great experience dealing with Apex Fence. They came on time as schedule and very happy with the work and service provided. Overall, they did a wonderful job!


  • Apex Fence had the best price and quality of any chain link fence contractor I contacted. They arrived on the day they promised and completed their job in one day. Very efficient work. Only one other comment, office staff were supposed to call within a couple of days after quote with installation date. I had to call myself after waiting one week. I was already on the schedule for installation. I just had not been notified yet.


  • Apex did a great job! They were fast and the decorative fence looks great. The workers were very nice and didn't leave any mess. Brian was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!


  • Apex just completed my fence install last week. I am very impressed with their workmanship, quality materials and professionalism. I think they are best in town and will work with them again.


  • I had a fence installed back in '09 by Carl and his crew. I am happy with the fence and it still looks great. Recently I had a hinge come loose from the gate. I called Carl and he came right out and repaired the hinge. If you are looking for a company that builds great fences and stands by their work, look no further.


  • I would highly recommend this company. Tom came out to give us our estimate and was knowledgeable and helpful from the start. He answered all of our questions, even ones we hadn't thought of. We had other companies out to give us quotes and they did not seem half as experienced or knowledgeable as Tom. It was an easy decision to go with Apex and we are very happy with the outcome. The guys came out to build and even cleared a lot of the brush and trees from the fence line without hesitation or extra expense. They finished the fence in 2 days and I can't say enough about how wonderful it looks, even better than imagined. It is a fence we can be proud of and I know it will last for many, many years.


  • Carl gave us everything we wanted in our fence (privacy, security and a great place for our kids/pets to play.) I would highly recommend Apex to anyone who wants a service that covers all the basis. We requested quotes from many providers....Apex was by far the true experts at giving you the best options for your fence. -K and E Dickinson
