Morticed Post and Rail Fencing
This attractive fencing comprises of sawn square section vertical posts, with three or four horizontal square section rails, morticed into the posts. There are additional prick posts in between the posts at the mid bay point to give extra support.
Allow one post and one prick post for every 2.85m of fence, plus one post for the end of the run.
Allow three rails per 2.85m run of 3-rail fence, and four rails per 2.85m of 4-rail fence.
When erecting post and rail fencing in the summer, it is advisable to set posts in concrete as it is difficult or impossible to ram dry soil tight.
