Why choosing sustainable eco fencing is both good for you and the environment
Virtually every one of the near 20 million homes in the UK has some form of fencing or gate marking its boundary and in virtually every case, these fences and gates are constructed from timber but this does not necessarily mean they are considered as sustainable eco fencing. Timber is a hugely important, organic construction material, recognised for its versatility and durability. It is widely used across a range of different applications, from residential garden boundaries to commercial premises, and as such it is necessary to consider how responsibly we use this resource to ensure its longevity.
With so many different options available today, when it comes to choosing fencing and gates, making a positive decision to select a sustainable, environmentally-friendly product is more important than ever.
Not all timber is the same, so it makes sense to know more about what you’re buying before you make that all important purchase commitment, after all a large part of the cost in replacing or installing a new fence or gate is the installation itself. This rings true whether it whether it ultimately lasts for 5 years or 25 years (even if the fencing is from sustainable sources).
Opting for higher quality materials is a good place to start. This article is designed to help you navigate through the maze of things you should consider when opting for eco-friendly, sustainable fencing, and to help you make a final decision about whats important to you when choosing your next fence or gate.
