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
  • We chose Apex due to their favorable reviews and they lived up to their good reputation. The price was competitive and we went with cedar for the 5ft split rail and it looks fantastic! The crew did a great job on the gates too. I definitely would recommend them!


  • Apex installed our fence last year. Our son broke one of the pickets recently and Apex said that they would repair it at no charge. They came out and did a fabulous job. The crew even made a few modifications at no charge. I can't say enough about this company. I'm so pleased. Jill couldn't have been nicer and I'll be calling Brian to see if he can do more work for us. Thank you APEX!!


  • My little one and I are very, very happy with our fence. Brian was so helpful, he even helped me find those tricky pins. He went over and above to help us and the fence looks wonderful. I highly recommend them!!


  • Working with Brian was very easy and very comfortable. He explained what he was going to do --and when -- and he came through right on the money. And concerning money, he was very competitive, better than most. I especially liked how his crew cleaned up every day. I would recommend him to friends and family.


  • 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.


  • The best price estimate by far. The installation was perfect. The customer service was also. Even allowed us to modify the job (which required more materials and work) at the last minute and did not change the price. Far superior to many home improvement companies and contractors we have hired. I highly recommend this company!

  • We found Apex online along with several other fencing companies. Apex was the most competitively priced and they delivered all they promised. Would highly recommend them!


  • We have a lot of fences in our neighborhood and the one we purchased from Apex tops them all. Neighbors have actually stopped by just to get a closer look at it. It's well-made and attractive.


  • 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!


  • We had about 400 ft of fence installed in July. We had problems with one gate post that was located in a concrete slab. Brian's crews returned to fix it after the gate wouldn't close about a month later, and then returned again several months later to replace the whole post. We are extremely pleased with the quality and look of the fence, but even more pleased with the service Brian provided several months after he had been paid in full. Thanks for making such a large expense less stressful.
