Paddock and estate fences offer a nice midpoint between the complete privacy of board on board fence and the open views of a split rail style fence. Paddock & estate fence styles are highly economical, as they require less wood than other types of fences. Customers with extensive acreage often choose this style of fence as it creates a pleasing border while also keeping animals confined within the property. We do fence installation for paddock & estate fence designs throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia, and West Virginia, including Westminster, Hagerstown, and Frederick.
We use pressure-treated pine, oak, or cedar for our wood paddock & estate fence designs, which holds up well under pressure and can withstand the elements for many years. Any fence we build also comes with an 18-month warranty on workmanship of all our paddock & estate fences.
Paddock fence installation is made with anywhere from three to five horizontal flat boards—typically measuring 1″x6″x8′ or 1″x4″x8’—that get attached to posts. Aside from picket and split rail fence, this is one of our most requested fencing styles. When we build a paddock fence, regardless of the type of wood used to create the rails, we always work with pressure treated posts, so your fence posts will last a long time and won’t require constant maintenance.
Paddock fence installation comes in 36”, 48” or 60” tall. It can be 2 board, 3 board or 4 board. It can also be built in custom 5 or 6 board in different heights. Paddock fence can be built from several types of lumber. It is available with 4”x4” pressure treated post, 5”-6” round post, and 6”x6” treated post. Boards can be standard 1×6 treated boards, standard 1×6 cedar boards, treated 5/4” boards, rough cut true 1×6 boards, treated and rough cut 1×6 oak boards.
Estate fencing is similar to a paddock fence, except some of the boards that go between the posts are overlapped to form a diagonal crisscross design. Estate fencing typically uses between 4″ and 6″ flat boards, depending upon how many horizontal boards you want to use above or below the crisscross pattern. Estate fencing comes in 4 board, 5 board, or 6 board in different combinations and is normally 48” tall.
If you never want to worry about replacing your estate or paddock fence as long as you own your property, consider getting a vinyl estate style fence. Vinyl Fencing Installation is stronger than wood and is highly resilient when it comes to enduring the elements. Other than the occasional soaking with a hose and a mild soap, vinyl fencing never fades or changes color, so you never have to worry about what your vinyl estate fencing will look like decades from now.
For residential applications, it is common to install wire mesh for pet or pool containment. Wire mesh comes in galvanized or vinyl coated in 1”x2” or 2”x4” in most heights. Wire can be installed on the outside of the paddock boards under the face boards or under paddock boards with wire between post and paddock boards.
