Country Lore: Make Woven Willow Fencing

You can create beautiful garden willow fencing from natural materials, such as willow whips and cedar posts. Make simple garden fences with wattle-work.

| June/July 2008

This willow fencing surrounds my herb garden. It is made of cedar posts and branches, and willow whips that grow in the ditches of upper Michigan. I am in the process of making a gate. I also have made trellises, tomato cages and a woodshed in this wattle-work tradition.

I was very interested in the article by Barbara Pleasant, Make Simple, Beautiful Garden Fences and Trellises.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
