Why Modwood fencing?

Knowing what Modwood material is made of will also give you an understanding of its benefits. It is made from recycled wood and plastic. Hence, it is wood composite.

Additionally, installing Modwood fencing will save your time and money in the long run. No piled-up maintenance costs, nor the time you would spend on replacing rotten or chipped paling. Modwood, on the other hand, does not splinter.
