Country Lore: Make Woven Willow Fencing

This natural-material fence of willow and cedar posts is an attractive addition to any yard.

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.
