Are you looking to install a brand new fence? Maybe you want to decide if keeping the old one is a good idea or not. Regardless of the motive, you’ll find that learning how your fence might be disrupting the wildlife and plant life around it should be one of your main priorities:
- The fence you own was built in an area ripe with vegetation, and is hindering the growth of trees, bushes and other plants. As a result, these ecosystems, which include the habitats of many animals and insects, will also be put to the test.
- Another sign that your fence is disrupting the wildlife around your home is the material it was made from. Some fences are made from organic materials and materials that are considered to be generally safe for the environment. Others, however, can break down under some conditions (such as being subjected to water or heat for a long time), and the compounds that they release into the environment as a result will definitely not be pleasant.
- Finally, some fences are tall and opaque, allowing no light to pass through them. This means some vegetation on either side of your fence might never gain access to sunlight, which could cause it to wither and die, also harming the animals that took shelter in or around it.
Knowing these facts is important, because they can help you better plan the fence you aim to install. Depending on your preference, an eco friendly residential fence company can help you chose what fence will be right for you, your budget, and your property.
