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.
