Hazel Hurdle Fencing

Hazel Hurdle Fencing

Perfect for a rustic aesthetic, hazel hurdles are a robust, free-standing form of fencing that will blend into a natural garden. The fences are handwoven from coppiced hazel, a sustainable process that produces flexible rods and allows for fresh growth year after year. Learn how our handwoven Papillon hurdles are made and how to install hurdle fencing in our step by step guide.

Contemporary split hazel fencing are an alternative where each woven hazel branch is literally split in half. This gives a more varied texture to the fence panel and makes them a great basis for climbing plants. You can treat them with wood preserve to keep their colour or let them weather naturally.

Hazel Hurdle Fencing FAQs

  • What are willow and hazel hurdles?

    Hazel hurdles and willow hurdles are perfect for anyone wanting practical, natural-looking garden fence panels. These hurdles require minimal maintenance and will look great for years to come. The way in which the branches have been woven means that air diffuses through the hurdle fencing instead of just being blocked. This makes the fence panels ideal for exposed areas, whereas other fences may be blown over in strong winds.
  • What is the difference between willow and hazel hurdles?

    The main difference is the size of branches or 'wands' used. Willow hurdles are woven from younger and therefore thinner branches – the horizontals are up to 1 cm in diameter. Hazel hurdles are larger, appearing more like 'branches' of a tree, generally, from 1 to 2 cm thick giving a more sturdy and less delicate feel to your fencing.
  • What types of hazel hurdles are there?

    All of the hazel hurdles are handwoven and skillfully crafted, meaning each panel has a unique characteristic. Although every product is manufactured to the same high standards and examined for uniformity, no two panels are exactly the same. We offer different types of hazel hurdles that display unique characteristics.

     - Split hazel is typically stronger as it contains larger diameter rods split in half, revealing distinctive wood grain that weathers over time. The contrast between the bark and the smooth inner wood in the weave makes for a striking fence. Behind every carefully crafted hurdle is a story that is told through the craftsmanship of the piece.

    - Birchwood capped provides a more effective windbreak for plants and vegetation due to its smaller diameter rods woven throughout the sails. In addition, its unique capped finish gives it a distinct look that no other hurdle can match.

    All of these types can be used as freestanding fencing or attached to existing structures.

  • How do you make a hazel hurdle?

    Willow hurdles can be created either by using a standard weave or by grouping the branches into a bunched weave which creates an attractive alternative pattern. The hazel hurdles can be made either by using whole branches or by using split branches for a contemporary finish. The branches in our hurdles are coppiced and their sources are therefore sustainable. All our hurdles are 6ft wide (1.83cm), with up to 5 heights: 3ft, 4ft, 4ft 6, 5ft and 6ft.

    They can be cut easily to reduce the height by cutting the verticals and removing unrequired horizontals. The width can be reduced by carefully cutting to ensure that the horizontals don't become unwoven. Alternatively, overlap adjacent hurdles to reduce width.

    Please note: This is a natural product and there will be variations from hurdle to hurdle and cane to cane. We cannot guarantee each roll or cane are identical - colour, width and length will vary.

  • Can willow and hazel be used as garden screening?

    An alternative natural fencing idea is outdoor screening. Unlike freestanding hurdles, screening is fixed to pre-existing fences for decoration and privacy. It can be made from a greater variety of materials as it doesn’t need to have the strength to stand up on its own. So as well as willow screening, you can also get bamboo, brushwood and artificial.
  • What are framed hurdles?

    You can adjust most of our hurdles to fit perfectly in your garden - if they’re too tall you can easily cut them down to size. For a more polished, modern look you can also choose framed hurdles, which have the same handwoven materials inside but a robust outer edge.
  • What is the history behind hurdles?

    Hazel and willow hurdles are perhaps the oldest form of fencing in Britain, dating back as far as Neolithic times 5000 years ago. Robust, beautiful and eco-friendly, hazel and willow hurdles are not only ideal for the traditional English country garden but also provide gardeners in the 21st century with the opportunity to create a unique, natural look for modern urban spaces.
    In our collection of hazel and willow hurdles, you’ll find a selection of styles to choose from including framed hurdles, bunch willow, split hazel and all the posts and fixings you could need to fit your hurdles firmly in place.
