Environmental awareness is important to us at FloriFence. We are very grateful to be in the beautiful and sunny land of Florida, and want to do our part to care for the natural landscapes and habitats that make our state so special. In order to make our services more eco-friendly, we offer a variety of sustainable fence materials that you can add to your home or business. These materials contribute minimal impact to the environment, and will last longer than traditional fence materials.
If you’re looking to build a more eco-friendly fence, we recommend one of these three materials:
Responsibly sourced wood
Wood fencing is not always considered eco-friendly because of the chemicals used to preserve it, or the practices used to harvest the lumber. However, FloriFence offers a variety of responsibly sourced wood options that don’t require chemical treatment to last. Responsibly sourced cedar is one of the most popular options because it does not need to be treated in order to be pest-resistant.
Composite fencing is made from recycled materials like straw, wood, and plastic. Though it’s a recycled material, it does a great job of reducing environmental impact while maintaining the classic look and function of wood fencing. Bio-composite fencing is a great option for both residential and commercial properties where form and function are just as important as sustainability.
Though aluminum is more environmentally taxing to produce, it is a surprisingly eco-friendly option because it can be fully recycled at the end of its lifespan. Metal materials like aluminum will also last several decades, so once it is installed it won’t need to be replaced typically for the length of homeownership. Metal fencing will weather strong Florida storms, and if it ever becomes damaged, you can take it to a local recycler to ensure it does little damage to the environment.
