Which Fence Type Is the Most Eco-Friendly in Florida?

Floridians are blessed with some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the country. We have beaches close by incredible natural greenery, and nearly year-round mild weather to enjoy. Because of this, many Floridians take their environmental responsibility very seriously. We want to be able to enjoy these natural wonders for years to come and can do so in part with eco-friendly building practices. 

If you’re looking for ways to make your home improvement more eco-friendly, start with your fencing! FloriFence offers several eco-friendly fence materials that are perfect for Florida homes. 

Locally Sourced Wood

Wood is often considered the most eco-friendly fencing material because it is a renewable resource that will either decompose or be recycled once it reached the end of its service life. However, wood that is imported from other states creates more greenhouse gas emissions during transport than those that are locally sourced. Luckily, Florida has a variety of local wood options including some that are hard to find elsewhere such as cypress. 

Bamboo Fencing

Bamboo fencing is not only visually appealing but it is considered an environmentally-conscious fence option because of how eco-friendly it is to grow. Bamboo requires very little land and water to grow, unlike trees which require a vast amount of natural resources to produce. Though bamboo fencing requires more care and maintenance throughout its service life, it is worth the effort for its striking appearance. 

Composite Fencing 

If you want a maintenance-free eco-friendly fence, composite materials are best for you. These fences are made from a blend of recycled wood and plastics, which helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Composite fencing mimics vinyl fencing in style and utility, but is a more eco-friendly option that is worth the investment for many homeowners.
