When you choose Futurewood’s range of wood composite products, you can enjoy an array of benefits – not the least of which is conserving our forests. Here are three ways Futurewood can help you create the outdoor area of your dreams while also looking after the environment.
The composite material that Futurewood uses looks and feels like timber, but is made from 90 per cent recycled materials: recycled HDPE (industrial waste and post-consumer plastic waste), sawdust and discarded rice husks. It is extremely easy to maintain, absorbs very little water and is resistant to termites and white ants into the bargain.
Environmental fencing and cladding
EnviroSlat is a ruggedly attractive, simple system with slats in your choice of colour and width that can be screwed directly on to fence posts. The end result is a stunning timber-look fence or screen. Because the slats are made from sustainable composite, you don’t need to paint or stain the wood, or maintain it with oils or finishes.
The EnviroFence, on the other hand, provides a fully private fence. Again, it is quick and easy to install, looks fantastic and is a breeze to maintain. Also, unlike timber, it won’t cup, split, rot or crack, ensuring it lasts for many years.
CleverDeck is easy to install, virtually maintenance free and great value. In addition, it gives you the benefit of being one of the most environmentally sustainable composite decking options available. Rather than choosing a deck with all of its associated environmental concerns, you can rest easy that you’ve chosen a smart solution that is good for the earth, and for your hip pocket.
Green garden edging
EnviroSlat garden edging is made from the same wood-plastic composite material as Futurewood’s other offerings, and provides a fantastic alternative for your next landscaping design. It can be used to edge your lawn, garden paths, ponds and tree surrounds, is extremely easy to shape and install, and is economical, resistant to termites and ecologically sound.
