Mid Atlantic Deck and Fence Co. is in downtown Annapolis today installing a fence around a Grow Annapolis garden across from the Marriott on Newman Street. Grow Annapolis is a nonprofit group that acquires small plots of land on which local residents and businesses can plant vegetables and flowers that will be donated to local food banks.
We’re using western red cedar for the project because it’s more eco-friendly than the traditional treated pine. Pine fences contain chemicals that could eventually seep into the soil whereas cedar does not. We don’t need to treat cedar because it has a natural resistance to rot, decay, and termite infestation. It also is very dimensionally stable and accepts a paint or stain very well. All in all, we’ve found that western red cedar is the best choice when it comes to any type of wood fencing.
We’re pleased to have the opportunity to donate our time and material to the Grow Annapolis project. Annapolis residents have been some of our best customers, and we are happy to do the right thing and give back to their community.
Thanks to Grow Annapolis, we have a fun project. If you’re interested in cedar or any other type of fencing for your garden or yard, contact us to learn more about how we can help you.
