Choose Natural Fencing Materials Over Vinyl or PVC

There is no shortage of natural fencing materials on the market today. While there may be some benefits to choosing vinyl or PVC fencing, the benefits of having a fence made from natural materials, like wood or metal, greatly outweigh the benefits of unnatural fencing materials.

Natural Fencing Materials

In terms of sustainability, nothing beats the real thing. Natural wood fencing materials are renewable and sustainable. A wooden fence sourced from sustainably managed forests is much more eco-friendly than any other material. Vinyl and PVC may have a reputation for being low maintenance and long-lasting, but there are many other factors that should deter you from going the unnatural route.

Why natural fences are better 

Natural Fencing Materials

Nothing beats a natural Red Cedar boundary fence.

Red Cedar fences are some of the most iconic fence styles in Colorado.

A wood or metal fence is going to look better. It’s that simple. Your fence should add aesthetic value to your home and property. Natural fencing materials will blend better and compliment the outdoor environment. A wooden fence is going to look better in the natural landscape because it belongs, adding greater curb appeal.

Cons of vinyl and PCV fencing

You may think that a vinyl or PVC fence will keep its outward appearance pristine for years, that unnatural materials won’t fade or deteriorate over time like a natural material. However, this is a bit of a misconception. While a vinyl fence won’t break down, there are plenty of ways that the exterior elements can cause problems. Mold and mildew will attach to just about anything, and when it comes to vinyl and PVC, this can cause discoloration, which doesn’t look good.

With natural materials, like wood, they will naturally age and gain a nice patina that just gives them more personality and makes them more beautiful over time.


People tend to think that vinyl or PVC won’t require any maintenance over time, however, like any material, they are susceptible to damage. Vinyl can crack under pressure and during weather, just like wood. If you’re looking for a material that is truly low maintenance, we recommend looking into metal fencing.
