Fences and walls

Tempos mom | Posted in Green Products and Materials on

I am trying to find green/recycled products available in southern California for a side and backyard wall.

It needs to be strong enough to survive an earthquake, also secure enough to withstand the two labradore retrievers on either side, and attractive considering the houses are California craftsman designs. Wood-looking or block will probably be OK. The height should be six feet.

And, since we may not get around to doing this project until next year, it should meet the new California Green Building Standards Code. See

Do you know of any such product? Do you know of an organization that might?

Thanks in advance!

    Our GreenSpec product guide lists at least three plastic fencing companies: PlasTEAK (Ohio), Inteq (Ohio) and Aeolian Plastic Fences (Pennsylvania). You would have to check out their websites for distribution details.

    Also, your own California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) has good green product resources, listed here in their Greenbuilding Toolkit :
