While many people in Canada live in a standard home or apartment, there are still plenty of folks who prefer a more rural life. Instead of a duplex or four-level split, these people may opt for a farm, acerage, or ranch-style home out in the country.
And just like a standard home, these people want to be able to secure their property with fencing. However, the standard fencing options like picket or privacy might not work. Instead, many of those who live on a ranch or at a farm will opt for a more traditional ranch fence. These are usually characterized by their 2, 3 or 4 rail design and are usually quite a bit lower than traditional fences. However, there are of course some design choices you can make to ensure the fence is exactly what you wanted. There is no right or wrong way to design your ranch fence.
The ranch rails and ranch fences play a very important role on any ranch or farm. First of all, they help to provide a barrier around the land you own. Out in the country, it can be tough for others (or even yourself) to know the exact borders of your land, so a fence can certainly help. Like most types of fences, ranch fence can also discourage people from entering your land and could keep unsavoury characters like vandals or thieves away from your land. Of course, having ranch fence out at your farm is also perfect for making sure your horses or other animals remain safe, secure and cannot run off. It also stops other animals from entering your property, too. Of course, there are those in cities who may also like this type of fence design, but it is usually used more in a rural setting.
If you have decided that ranch fencing is right for your home, farm or ranch, the next thing you need to do is choose what type of material it will be made out of. Arguably the most common material is wood, it is cheap and works relatively well, but can take a lot of maintenance to keep it sharp. You will have to paint and stain it, and may have to deal with issues like rot, splinters, splitting and more. Many are made of metal, but that can easily rust and could potentially injure your animals if they run into it because of how solid it is.
Instead, many people are starting to go with vinyl for building their ranch fences. In addition to being more flexible and safe for your animals, vinyl has the benefit of being incredibly low maintenance. Vinyl fences don’t need to be painted or stained, and will keep their color for years. Also, vinyl fences will not fall victim to other common issues such as rotting, chipping, rusting, or splitting. All you will need to do to maintain your vinyl ranch fence is spray it down with water and periodically scrub it down if build-up of dirt or other substance occurs.
