ECO FENCES
 When building a new fence, it's important to use materials that are either sustainably sourced or recycled to reduce your environmental impact.
From traditional wood fences made from sustainable lumber to composite fences made from recycled materials, there are numerous options when building an eco-friendly fence. Eco-friendly fences include: bamboo fences; composite fences; living fences; stone fences; wood fences; and metal fences.
BAMBOO
Bamboo is a reliable eco-friendly fencing product. It is a renewable resource which is strong and durable. Bamboo is twice as strong as cedar. Bamboo is also resistant to termites, which cannot digest the silica found in bamboo. Bamboo fences cost less than traditional fencing materials.
COMPOSITE
Composite materials are made from recycled plastic and wood fiber. Composite materials do not require painting or staining like traditional fencing products. They are durable and easy to maintain. A composite fence materials provide a natural-looking barrier that is durable, insect-resistant, and weather-resistant. 
LIVING FENCES
Living fences are trees spaced close together and connected by wire. Living fences can also be natural hedges made from plants placed close together to grow into a connected, living wall. A living fence is a wonderful natural barrier that has a low environmental impact; filters air pollution; denotes property lines; and provides habitat connectivity.
STONE
Stone is a great natural material to use for a fence. Stone fences last a long time and require minimal maintenance. Stone is resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage.
WOOD
Wood is a renewable resource and material. Wood is one of the most eco-friendly materials for building fences. Wood can be reused or recycled, and is biodegradable and will not clutter landfills.
METAL
Metal is a solid eco-friendly choice when deciding what your fence material will be. Some metal fences are made from recycled materials, and are recyclable themselves. Metal is extremely durable and low-maintenance. Metal fence material includes: aluminum, steel, chain link, and wrought iron. Aluminum is a lightweight metal that is resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a good option for coastal areas. Steel is strong, durable, and low maintenance. Wrought iron is beautiful and long-lasting. Do not use razor wire or barb wire on metal fences. Make sure the metal fence is built so it does not harm wildlife.

LIVING FENCES

LIVING FENCES & HEDGES
NATURAL BARRIERS PROVIDING HABITAT CONNECTIVITY
 In Costa Rica long fences and trees have been combined into living fences. Living fences offer a strong, sustainable alternative to standard manufactured posts. A living fence or “live fence” is made of trees spaced evenly in a line to form a property border or barrier. The trees are planted close together and may have barbed wire woven between the trees. If the trees are allowed to grow freely they will provide shade for crops and animals. Depending on the type of tree used, it may also provide fruit. Large properties like farms use living fences, while small properties using living hedges as natural barriers to define property lines and create habitat connectivity.
