Benefits of Cedar Split Rail Fencing

One of the most practical solutions for multi-acre properties and country homes are western red cedar split rail fences. The cost-efficient and weather resistant materials have made it a staple throughout the Texas Hill Country.

Durability of Cedar

Compared to round and other wood materials, the finer grain of cedar provides a higher resistance to decay. Cedar has a natural extract that’s toxic to fungus and has another one that repels bugs. Since you don’t have to worry about insect rot, no pesticide application is necessary.

For maintenance, cedar is one of the densest wood choices. Unlike some wood types, warping does not occur in the presence of moisture and the Texas heat. You also do not have to worry about re-staining or painting again. As the fence ages, it will only become more rustic in color (think silverish gray) giving it a more old school look.

Defining Your Property Lines

Not only do homeowners use cedar split rail to enclose livestock and other animals, but you can also use it as a cost-effective option for communicating your property lines to neighbors.
