Making a willow hurdle is easy. Build as many as you need to make all sorts of useful and attractive fences and screens.

You’ll need:

• 4 hazel posts (at least 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
• Willow rods (flexible stems)
• Hammer
• Knife or ax (Optional — to whittle ends of posts to a point so they pierce the ground more easily.)
