These fence posts help complete the look which willow and hazel hurdles bring to your garden and create a more rustic woodland aesthetic compared to traditional fencing.
Alternatively, these fence posts can be used with our range of screening products to create beautiful natural barriers in your garden. Creative gardeners can even use them to create pathways leading your guests through your garden, or to bring a sense of nature to garden borders. When combined with screening, these fence posts can also be used to divide areas of your garden for practical or aesthetic purposes, screening vegetable patches away from encroaching pets or creating a lovely backdrop to your flowerbeds.
This product will provide you with a manual means of creating five inch diameter post holes. The auger has a smaller locating screw, making it easier to start the hole.

It is important to ensure that you have the correct size fence post for your hurdles. The 5ft 6in post is designed to be used with hurdles up to 4ft high. If your hurdles are one of the larger sizes (4ft 6in or 6ft) you will need the 8ft fencing posts to give the maximum support.
These posts should be measured against the hurdles to find the correct height. As they are completely natural they can be cut to any length desired – for example one could cut them at different heights to make a “staggered” look to make a feature of the posts.
You can easily attach the hurdles to the fence posts with galvanised wire, cable ties or screws/nails.
Please Note: You should have at least 18 inches of post in the ground to ensure stable support, more if the site is exposed.
