In recent years hybrid fencing has increased in popularity due to its convenience and environmentally friendly properties. Hybrid fencing is made from a material called UPVC, and you most probably already have this material in your garden in the form of garden furniture.

5 Solid Reasons To Choose Hybrid Fencing For Your Garden

Extremely low maintenance

In today’s world, we are all looking for products that are low maintenance so that they do not intervene with our busy lives. This is where UPVC fencing stands out from other garden barrier options such as wooden fences or hedges. UPVC is as low maintenance as they come, resistant to everyday wear and tear – in addition, no moisture can penetrate the material, so your fence will remain rot, blister and peel free.

There is no need to get the paint brush out for a while either. Unlike wooden fences, UPVC fencing is UV resistant and has properties that prevent the colour of your new fence fading for years. Even when it does begin to fade slightly, you will barely notice as the colour will remain stable. When it comes to cleaning your hybrid fence, there is no need for strong chemicals or treatments, just simple soapy water will do the job.

Strong enough to withstand the elements

Hybrid fencing is extremely strong and is often used by people with animals such as horses and other large animals as it is strong enough to withstand a good amount of pressure, and the physical demands often placed on a fence. It will also retain its shape in hot weather, so no more swollen wooden gates for you this summer!

You may not even realise it, but you know that garden furniture you have had in your shed for years? Well it is most probably made out of UPVC. It is always a great feeling when summer rolls up and you get the plastic furniture out, give it a little wipe down and it looks just as good as it did the year before. Garden furniture is not the only thing in your home that may be made with UPVC – it is often used for windows, doors and conservatories, so why not use it in the garden?

Environmentally friendly

UPVC can be reshaped at extremely high temperatures so therefore can be recycled, making this fence great for the environment. With climate change and environmental issues all over the news, the UK as well as the rest of the world are becoming more conscience of their carbon footprint, recycling is becoming a part of our daily routine, so why not turn your eco-conscious mind to your garden and make an environmentally friendly choice for your fence?

Cost-Effective

The low maintenance element to hybrid fencing does not only make this a convenient option, but also reduces the cost of the upkeep. As long as you can afford to buy a sponge and soap, there are no extra costs involved! Hybrid fencing will last up to five times longer than a wooden fence so replacement costs are reduced as well.

Hybrid fencing may be a little more expensive than a standard wooden fence, but considering how much you will save over the years on paint, rot treatments and replacements, it will definitely save you money in the long run.

Simple to install

Even if you are not partial to a bit of DIY, hybrid fencing is so easy to install so it does not require a specialist. It truly can be fitted by anyone. The parts use a simple slide and lock into place systems as well as being light in weight. The only part of the installation process that resembles traditional fencing methods is that the posts are set into concrete. There are videos on YouTube to guide you through the installation process, so you can’t go wrong!
