Split rail fences are a staple of rustic and cozy home environments. Although they provide a pleasing atmosphere to the areas they protect, they come at a cost, both ethically and fiscally. The wood in the split rail fences doesn’t come from anywhere but trees, and it is no secret that there is a crisis when it comes to deforestation and overuse of natural resources.
Enter the recycled plastic vineyard post and split rail fencing. Not only do they provide an ethical benefit in regards to deforestation issues, but they also stand the test of time better than any wood could. This goes for the vineyard posts as well.
“Vineyard poles are highly durable; not susceptible to rot, termites, carpenter bees or other wood boring insects; never need painting; look good and function well for many, many years. Compare it to wood yourself. We think you will be pleasantly surprised,” states inventor and manufacturer, Patrick Kelley.
Where wood continues to rot and requires constant upkeep (and money), plastic requires very little, if any follow-up maintenance over the same lifespan.
One might express a concern about the plastic itself, and whether or not there are any chemicals that might be leached into the earth, especially when dealing with something as delicate as soil used for growing grapes. Unlike pressure treated wood, there are zero hazardous chemicals that could be leached from it.
With a dedication to helping preserve our environment and a desire to help others who are also committed to this goal, Close the Loop was established in October, 2000 after much research into who has been doing what in the recycled "green" world. They believe in helping environmentally conscious small businesses have a presence on the web, at no cost to them. Products are made in USA from state-of-the-art recycling of plastic scrap and waste wood fiber are used as a non-wood alternative building material for the fencing and plastic lumber market including: recycled plastic fencing, posts, rails, vineyard poles, composite lumber. They also offer glass mulch, rubber mulch, rubber landscape timbers, rubber pavers and more.
