Home Ranch Rail Fencing Installation 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
  • Apex Fence Company really went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer, even coming out to speak personally with a difficult neighbor. I was really impressed with their professionalism, and ended up with a beautiful privacy fence!


  • Had fence put up two days ago. Love it! Dog ear 6ft privacy fence. The workmanship and materials are high quality and the workers were extremely nice, pleasant, accommodating and efficient. The same can be said about Carl who is the company manager who I originally met with. He even comes out later to check on the work and that you are completely satisfied before final payment is made. I felt very comfortable with the decision to use his company. I know they will stand behind their work. Plus they put the fence up within a day. My next door neighbors used them as well and their fence looks great too. Price was very reasonable. My only regret is not having done it earlier. The bonus is my Houdini escape artist dogs are now finding their hobby impossible to continue.


  • I had Apex install a privacy fence. It looks great, was installed quickly, and at a very reasonable price. Brian answered all my questions promptly and explained the installation process in detail. I highly recommend using Apex Fence Co.


  • Apex was scheduled to install our fence on a Wednesday, but called saying they had an opening on Tuesday if we wanted it installed sooner. The crew was on time, polite, and finished the install in about 5 hours. They cleaned up behind themselves, and did a great job. Highly recommended.

  • Great experience from start to finish! We had Apex replace our privacy and picket fences and install an automatic gate. Bill and Christie are both very friendly and helpful and no one tried to up-sell me into buying what I didn't need or want. Stayed true to all timelines and quotes and worked within my budget. Our new fences and gates are beautiful! Would definitely recommend!


  • Love, love, love Apex Fence Company! Unfortunately, in this day and time it is rare to find a company that is not only professional, exudes exemplary customer service, and is reasonable, but that is EXACTLY what Apex Fence delivers. Our sales rep., Phil Steinmetz, was a dream – he provided solutions to make our fencing needs a reality. With having strict HOA guidelines, coupled with where our property line fell in the backyard (extremely wooded), we were able to preserve our green space and get beautiful fencing all within budget. Phil went above and beyond in communication and ensured our needs were met – even after all was said and done. I should also add a special comment and thanks to the installation crew, as the same day of installation our next-door neighbors were having an extravagant birthday party for their child (petting zoo, bouncy house, etc.). The installers were so very conscientious to install in areas that would not interrupt the party and save the side work for last after the party concluded. These are just a few little touches that went such a long way and we couldn’t be more pleased. We will definitely recommend to anyone with fencing needs. -Christine


  • I just had a backyard ranch type fence installed in my backyard. My experience with Apex Fence was very good. From the first visit to estimate the cost through the install no issues what so ever. The installers worked very hard basically non-stop through over 90 degree heat. I was very impressed.


  • We needed a fence installed for our back yard. Shane Oliver came out and measured, listened to my requests and made recommendations. I appreciate his expertise! He provided a detailed quote and sketch to provide to the HOA. After scheduling, a crew of two came out and worked very hard a put up our fence in one day. They were professional and friendly. The fence is sturdy, secure and we are very happy with it. Thanks for making it happen Apex!


  • Carl and his crew did an excellent job installing my 5 foot galvanized chain link fence & electric aluminium gate. Not to mention how quick it was installed. Unbelievable and even more how precise and the quality, INCREDIBLE. They were so clean, no debris left behind. My adorning beautiful eyelash style black aluminum electric single arm gate is the jewel of my home!!!! I have large doggies and feel very relaxed now that they are safe and secure !! If only all other businesses could mirror this!!


  • Apex provided our subdivision perimeter fencing needs with a superior product, and exceptional service at competitive pricing. We will continue to do business with them because of their professionalism, when it comes to planning, scheduling, and executing the installation.
