Our classic willow screening is woven together with full knots, which allows more light through. The gaps between the rods allow enough air to pass through to save the fence toppling over in high winds. Since the willow is coppiced, the willow wands are flexible for weaving and the process is sustainable.
What's the difference between the types of willow screening?
Classic natural willow screening is woven together with full knots, which allows more light through. The willow canes are between 5-15mm thick (usually about 7mm) and wired together with galvanised metal loops.
Premium willow screening is woven together with half knots, for a much tighter weave. The willow canes are also between 5-15mm thick, but are fresher, more consistent and uniform. It is wired with galvanised metal loops, but the gaps between canes are smaller. The canes are also air dried, making this a more environmentally friendly option.
Split willow screening is also made with full knots. Each cane is split vertically to give contrasting textures on the screen. The average thickness is 5mm and the canes are held together with galvanised wire loops. Split willow screening is exclusive to Papillon.
What is willow screening?
Willow screening rolls are an effective way of transforming the look and feel of your garden. There are many uses for willow fence screening, such as covering an unsightly garden fence or for splitting your garden into different areas.
We offer a choice of different willow roll heights and colours so you can be sure to find the screen that fits your garden’s size as well as its style.
Our willow garden screening is made from individual natural willow canes held together by galvanised wire. The result is a sturdy, durable screen that will not only look great, but also stand up to the elements throughout the seasons.
Since the canes used in our willow screening rolls are completely natural you’ll find that they range in diameter from 5mm to 15mm.
If willow isn’t for you, we've got a selection of garden screening rolls in a range of other materials that will suit any garden, including:
