Eco-friendly Composite Fence Options

Even fencing in your backyard can be done in a more earth-friendly manner with products composed of recycled materials, such as plastic (typically HDPE) and reclaimed wood fibers.  This combination of materials creates a low-maintenance, durable composite fence that is resistant to cracking, rotting, and insect damage.  Plus, it offers the look of wood, but doesn’t require painting, staining, or sealing!  Matching gates and other fence accessories are offered as well.

Recycled composite fencing is offered by these companies:


  • FenceScape by TimberTech offers a steel-reinforced top rail, for added strength, on its dog-eared and square cut board fencing.  It’s available in a Mountain Cedar color.  It comes with a 25-year limited warranty and is available through dealers across the country.
  • Fiberon Fencing is made in the U.S.A.  It comes in post & rail and 4 3/4″ dog-ear picket styles and is offered in 3 tones:  Weathered Pine, Pacific Redwood and Coastal Cedar.  The product is available at local dealers across the country and is backed by a 15/10 limited warranty.
  • LifeCycle Fencing from Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies offers a 25-year limited warranty.  Two styles and two finishes are available:  A residential grade design in 1/2″ x 5.5″ profile, and a commercial grade design in 3/4″x 5.5″ profile; and Rustic Cedar and Earthtone colors.  Get it from dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
