Woven from coppiced willow to a traditional pattern, this beautiful, robust and eco-friendly 6ft willow fence panel will make a perfect practical addition to your garden. Bring a part of the countryside to your very own garden with this willow fence panel, which will not only be ideal for the traditional English country garden but also provide gardeners in the 21st century with the opportunity to create a natural look for modern urban spaces.
This willow hurdle, like many others, has been woven from young and therefore thin branches. Depending on the level of exposure to wind and how well they are secured in place, they can be expected to provide a good few years of service and will age gracefully while still maintaining sturdiness.
Willow fencing is coppiced, meaning the branches are cut only from new growth. The purpose is two-fold: to ensure that the branches or 'wands' are flexible and of reasonably uniform thickness, and to allow more growth for next year.
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.
DimensionsThe horizontals are up to 1cm in diameter All panels are 6ft wide
Please Note: The height refers to the horizontal woven section - the vertical stakes sticking out at the top and bottom add up to an extra 6 inches.
You might also want to consider Willow Screening. Screening is cheaper, and allows you to cover existing walls or fences with natural willow.
The posts should be measured against the hurdles to find the correct height. As it is completely natural it can be cut to any length desired – for example one could cut several at different heights to make a “staggered” look to make a striking garden feature.
You can easily attach the hurdles to the fence post with the included galvanised wire or with 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.
