Frequently asked questions

Willow and hazel hurdles are types of fencing made from woven willow or hazel branches. They are commonly used in garden and landscaping applications for their natural appearance and durability. The use of these materials is eco-friendly and sustainable, making them a popular choice for those looking for a rustic or natural aesthetic.

Our hazel hurdles are skillfully handwoven, giving each panel its own unique charm and character. While we maintain consistent high standards and thoroughly inspect each product, no two panels are exactly alike. We offer a variety of hazel hurdle options that highlight their distinct and individual features.

  • Split hazel hurdles are renowned for their durability and strength, thanks to their larger diameter rods that are split in half to reveal distinctive wood grain that ages beautifully over time. The striking contrast between the natural bark and the smooth inner wood in the weave creates a unique and eye-catching fence. Each of our meticulously crafted hurdles tells a story through the artisanal workmanship that goes into every piece.

  • Birchwood capped hurdles are an ideal solution for protecting plants and vegetation from harsh winds, as they are woven with smaller diameter rods that create a more effective windbreak. What's more, their distinctive capped finish sets them apart from any other type of hurdle, giving them a unique and attractive appearance

Many sizes - and any sizes

Our hurdles are available in multiple sizes, but it's easy for you to cut them to the perfect size -(you have the weaver's permission).Height: easily cut the verticals to size, then simply remove the excess horizontals. Width: more care required - the cut ends will need to be secured with wire or nails to prevent them becoming "unwoven wood".

Hazel and willow hurdles have a rich history as the oldest form of fencing in Britain, dating back over 5000 years to Neolithic times. Today, these environmentally friendly and durable fences are not only perfect for traditional English country gardens but also provide a unique and natural look for contemporary urban spaces. Our collection offers a range of styles including framed hurdles, bunch willow, and split hazel, as well as all the necessary posts and fixings to ensure a secure installation. Explore our selection of hazel and willow hurdles to find the perfect fit for your garden.

Traditional willow and hazel hurdles and screens are a popular choice among homeowners and garden designers due to their versatility and natural appearance that can complement any garden style, whether it's urban or rural.

These hurdles are made from sustainably sourced coppiced willow and hazel, a traditional and eco-friendly method that involves cutting back branches to the ground level to stimulate fresh growth year after year.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, hurdles also serve as excellent garden fences as they act as windbreaks while still allowing some wind to pass through, thus reducing the vortex effect that solid barriers would create. Overall, willow and hazel hurdles are a sustainable and attractive choice for garden design.

If you live in an area with high winds and have had issues with your panelled fencing blowing over, installing fence panels with gaps can be a wise choice. Gaps allow wind to pass through, reducing the pressure and preventing damage. Alternatively, using a concrete mix can provide added stability and help the fence stay firmly in place even in extreme weather conditions.

Our garden hurdles can be easily adjusted to fit any garden size. If they're too tall, you can easily cut them down to the desired size. For a contemporary appearance, you can choose framed hurdles, which feature handwoven materials inside and a robust outer edge, giving a polished and modern look.

Natural fencing offers a variety of styles that can enhance the look of any garden. Willow hurdles come in standard and bunched weaves for unique patterns, while hazel hurdles can be made with whole or split branches for a modern touch. All these hurdles use coppiced branches, making them a sustainable choice.

These hurdles are available in 6ft width and 4 heights, ranging from 3ft to 6ft. They can be easily cut to reduce height or width by cutting the verticals and carefully removing horizontals without unwoven them. Overlapping adjacent hurdles can also help reduce the width. Overall, natural fencing provides an eco-friendly and versatile option for any garden design.

Properly secured willow and hazel fencing panels can last up to 10 years and provide a rustic aesthetic to your garden. It is essential to place them in a protected area away from strong winds to ensure their longevity. Regular maintenance can also help extend their lifespan. With proper care, you can enjoy your willow fencing panel for many years.

Willow and hazel are versatile options for garden screening, providing natural beauty and privacy. These materials can be woven together to create attractive screens that blend well with various garden styles. Willow and hazel screens add charm while allowing air and light to filter through. Use them to partition areas, block views, or create cozy corners in your outdoor space.

A beautiful word in a beautiful world. We won't mention "sustainable" because that would be too obvious.
