Split rail fences have long held a place in the rustic American landscape. Usually 4 meters high poles 10 feet away, lane divided fences are made of logs that have been split lengthwise rails. Not suitable for enclosing or keep out small animals, fences do not make beautiful decorative barriers. Contact your local building inspector to establish an inspection prior to installation to determine if your proposed split rail fence complies with local zoning requirements. Then building inspector will help ensure that it meets local building codes. Obtain a building permit before installing the fence.
Dig the first hole 2 meters deep and make it wider at the bottom than at the top in an inverted conical shape. Slip the ends of the rails into the holes in the posts. Dig and set the following entry in the hole. Set a corner post so the second set of rail mounting holes is rotated in the sense that the split rail fence is becoming with rails mounted input. Fill the hole and tamp tight dirt around. Insert the rails on the corner post in the new angle and setting further extend the fence posts and rails following the path traced.
