Split rail fences (also known as zig zag fences, worm fences or snake fences) can be a great way to spruce up your New Jersey home and elegantly accent your property. In fact, split rail fencing is one of the oldest known fence designs, having been used since the American Civil War. They are made from wood logs, split lengthwise (creating rails, hence the name). If needed, the soldiers could user the wood from the fence to fuel their fires.
Generally, the materials required to create a split rail fence are very minimal. However, installing this type of fence requires precise planning. The fence contractor must account for many different elements including slope and grounding.
