Post and rail fencing is a very rural style for driveways and for stock.
Posts are 75x125mm, but can be 75x100mm or 75x150mm if required. In the main they
are backfilled with soil, which usually gives the most satisfactory finish, but if
conditions dictate they can be set in concrete.
Post and rail looks its best with three rails, this achieves a visual balance. However
it can also be supplied with two rails for economy or four rails for extra security
with stock. It can have stock netting fixed to it to make it proof against small
stock or dogs. Rails are most always of 38x100mm timber and fixing holes are predrilled
to prevent splitting when nailing.
