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 got quotes from 8 different fence companies for our subdivision pool in Marietta, GA. Brian was the only one that actually knew what he was doing, was willing to take on the tough task and was the most professional. Part of what his team had to do was support the pool deck while replacing the fence. Other companies bailed out and said they didn't want to be responsible for it. His team took it on, did a fantastic job and never complained! He answered all our questions (and we had many) and he did the job in a timely manner. His crew was professional and accommodating. The new fence is beautiful. Brian continues to check up on us and take care of all concerns. We couldn't ask for more!


  • I met with Phil on a Saturday. He explained what we could expect and our new fence looks great. Contract to completion only took 1.5 weeks! Outstanding experience. Highly recommend!


  • Apex did a front yard picket fence for us. Carl was great, responsive and had really good ideas for the fence that I wouldn't have thought of. The guys who came to install the fence were polite, efficient and did a great job. We've received so many compliments on the fence -- all our friends and the neighbors love it and our dogs love being able to be out in the front yard with us. It couldn't be more perfect and we would recommend Apex to anyone.


  • Apex worked hard to make me happy! They brainstormed solutions to some hard space-planning options around my driveway for a drive gate, they shaped the top of the gate in a visually pleasing way, and they worked around trees to create a beautiful fence. My neighbors were stunned at how great the new fence looks! Thank you to Phil, Chris, Christi and the install team. Great job!


  • We recently had a chain linked fence installed. Tom (sales) was very thorough and did an excellent job answering all my questions. The crew showed up on time, were hard workers, were very professional and did a great job. Apex Fence Company exceeded my expectations and that rarely happens! I would highly recommend using them to anyone!


  • We are very happy with our fence and the salesperson (Bill Woodbury) that made our backyard beautiful. Bill had great, affordable suggestions that we never would have thought of. Our yard is perfect!
    The crew was on time and did a fantastic job cleaning up after the installation.


  • OK, when the neighbors come over and tell you they have "fence envy", you know you chose the right company! Apex gave us exactly what we were looking for and at a good price too. Sure, we could have gone cheaper, but I didn't want a cheap looking fence. The crew made it work for MY schedule which was important since we were on a deadline. Overall we couldn't be happier with the new metal fence. Thanks Apex!


  • Apex is a great company! I am and continue to be satisfied with the professionalism and customer service provided by Apex. I strongly recommend Apex to all desiring a fence installed by a company with strong Character and Integrity.


  • You know what they say, "Great fences make great neighbors". If you need that great fence, call APEX FENCE. They came when they said they would, he finished with our chain link fence in 2 days (his assistant was out sick). We are very happy with our fence, it has been a few weeks and we just had it stained today. The price was slightly under the other 3 companies. Last, the sales guy was highly knowledgeable and really made us feel confident in APEX FENCE.


  • 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.
