A twig hedge is a great option for decorating a garden. It blends harmoniously with grass, flowers, recalling the "rustic" style. The wattle can be used as a fence, flower bed fence or decorative item. Moreover, you can make a hedge with your own hands. And how - Novate.ru will tell.
1. Horizontal wattle
Sharpen and drive the vertical uprights into the ground at a distance of about 20 cm. If you are a beginner weaver, try to take a vine several times thinner than the uprights. The bottom two rows can be woven using the two-wire rope technique to secure the risers. The weaving principle is shown in the picture.
The most important thing is to build up the rods in time, that is, add and weave new branches into the hedge. Just make sure that the new rod must overlap the already braided one by a step or two, otherwise holes will appear. After a couple of rows using the "two-twig rope" technique, the rest of the fence can be weaved with regular weaving. Pay attention to keep the same distance between the risers at the bottom. To securely fix the structure, braid the outer pillars with a turn in three to five places. This will prevent the hedge from falling apart and keep its shape.
2. Vertical wattle
The same fence in the "rustic" style, which looks picturesque against the background of natural landscapes. An easy-to-manufacture design, because even dry and practically rigid branches are suitable for it. To create a hedge, branches of bird cherry, hazel and other plants are inserted into the space between three horizontally fixed sticks. The oblique wattle looks especially beautiful and unusual when the branches are inserted at a certain angle.
3. A flower bed in a basket
Another idea is to make a flower bed using circular weaving. To do this, stick sticks-risers into the ground around the flower garden. Just try to have an odd number of them, otherwise you will have to jump over two rods to get weaving. This design will help protect your favorite flowers from the attacks of pests and pets. A fold will complement the hedge - weaving from risers along the upper edge of the product. To make a bend, stick one additional rod to the right of each riser. Next, the rod is bent above the wattle fence, lead it through the adjacent riser from the inside and take it out, and then again from the inside and again from the outside.
