Natural and traditional
Willow hurdles are beautifully woven in a traditional pattern, which provides a strong, natural and eco-friendly fencing option. The hurdle is perfect for the classic English country garden or for improving an urban landscape.
Farmers have been attracted to willow and hurdle throughout British throughout history. They even go as far back as the Neolithic age, 5000 years ago.
Eco-Friendly and sustainable
Hazel and willow are ‘coppiced’, which means they are eco-friendly because cuttings are only taken from new trees. Traditional farmers have historically used willow and hurdle as the trees grow back next year.
Another benefit of using branches cut from new trees is that the ‘wands’ are flexible and uniform. The panel is designed to last for years to come.
What’s the difference between Hazel and Willow?
The branches used for Hazel are thicker at approximately 2-3cm. Willow branches in contrast, are 1cm thick. Willow is slightly cheaper for that reason; yet quality is not sacrificed.
Do hurdles need treatment?
Not necessarily – the hurdles look great as they age because they turn a light grey. If a preservative is desired, a clear treatment is recommended.
6 x 6ft/1.8×1.8m hurdles weigh about 25kg, so are heavy compared with other fencing panels.
Posts and fixings
We recommend you use 8 ft/2438mm x 3-4 inch round stakes. Attach hurdles to posts with galvanised wire or cable ties. Alternatively, simply screw into place.
