Why willow? Five benefits of Willow Fencing for your Garden.

clock-circular-outline Created with Sketch. Jan 24, 2024

In a world dominated by concrete and machine cut materials, the natural and effortless flow of wicker panels presents a change to the monotony that we see. Willow hurdles are a break from the normal, an end to the uniformity, and a march against the harmful consumption of the modern world. But a willow fence is not just a rustic garden accesory, they provide a multitude of benefits that you may not be aware of. Read on to find out five benefits of willow fencing for your garden.

1. Natural Windbreak. Willow hurdles can provide a natural windbreak, whilst remaining stable. A sturdy wicker fence has natural gaps in the weave, and can allow some wind to pass through, whilst blocking most of the force. This means that your garden is protected from wind, whilst the hurdles remain strong. Our willow hurdles have lots of small, natural gaps in the weave, and allow for some air to pass through, and are the perfect fence for any breezy climate. Willow fencing only serves to improve your garden on a hot day, as they allow a small breeze to permeate, which has a nice cooling effect.

2. Eco friendly and sustainable. Every willow hurdle is handwoven by skilled artisans, using techniques that have existed for over 10,000 years. Eco friendly and sustainably harvested, wicker panels are the premier fence on the market. Willow fencing can turn your garden into an environmental area, and unlike other fencing it will biodegrade at the end of its lifespan without leaving any harmful residue. If you want to play a part in saving our planet, supporting a sustainable practice such as coppicing will go further than you might think.

3. Privacy and Protection. While not completely opaque, wicker fence panels offer a good degree of privacy and seclusion, shielding your yard from prying eyes and creating a peaceful sanctuary. Willow fencing can add privacy to your garden, and provide you with an escape from the world. Willow hurdles will turn your garden into a private oasis that can remove you from the outside world, allowing you to rest and recharge in serene relaxation. Willow fences are also versatile and can easily be adapted to fit many outdoor spaces, such as decks, patios, hot tubs and to cover old fences.

4. Lightweight and easy to install. Compared to our range of hazel hurdles, our willow fencing is lighter and allows for easier installation, as it has more spokes which means it has increased sturdiness in the ground. If you'd like to see our fencing installation guide, you can see that here. Unlike wooden fences that require regular sanding, staining, and repairs, wicker panels are remarkably low-maintenance. An occasional sweep with a broom and a light touch-up every few years is all they need to maintain their pristine condition. This translates to more time spent enjoying your outdoor space and less time wrestling with upkeep chores.

5. Aesthetics. Whilst we already said the rustic looks of these wicker panels aren't everything, we'd be lying if we didn't say that willow panels' natural aesthetic will not enhance your gardens image. Every willow hurdle is unique and this prevents you from having the monotonous fencing that plagues the nation nowadays. Make use of this classic hurdle to spruce up your garden and give it that extra natural look that will really impress your friends. Willow fencing has a natural reddish orange tinge, that can be subtly appreciated in a garden. 

We hope we've given you some valuable insight into whether willow fencing is the option for you. Willow hurdles combine natural beauty, eco-friendliness and practicality. So if you feel that willow fencing is the option for you, check out our range here.
