Even a small yard requires a lot of resources to fence it in, so why not consider an environmentally-friendly alternative? Some of today’s long-lasting composite fencing can easily be found (even at big box home improvement centers) and makes better use of resources, typically using recycled and reclaimed materials. Plus, it looks great and is virtually maintenance-free with its resistance to moisture, insects, rotting, splintering and no need for painting or staining! It is even available in several styles and colors.
