Wattling is a traditional European craft that has been practiced for centuries, according to the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Often used to build walls for houses and sheds, wattling can also be used to create garden structures, such as fencing and trellises. ZenFusionHome adds that wattle fences are a relatively inexpensive alternative to bamboo fences and can be built from branches gathered outdoors.

Willow is a popular material for wattle fences, as its flexibility allows for tighter weaving and, consequently, sturdier fences. ZenFusionHome says that readers who opt to use willow for their projects should select branches that are green and tender; these will be more pliable, and they have the potential to root and sprout leaves, resulting in a living fence.

Hazel branches are also suitable for wattling due to their flexibility and strength, and hazel wattle fences are capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions without being damaged. Because living trees coppice well, continuous cutting and harvest will stimulate robust growth, making them one of the more sustainable options. ZenFusionHome notes that the best time to harvest hazel branches is in winter, when the plants are dormant and sap production is low; the wood is most durable during this period.

Homeowners who prefer lighter colors can also use reed, which is prized for its aesthetic value and longevity. Reed fencing can last more than a decade and is particularly suitable for decorative panels. Because it naturally resists termites and other pests, it also doesn’t require treatment, unlike other wood types.

When building their fence, readers can employ several weaving techniques to ensure the strength of the structure. Basic over-and-under patterns are the most common type of weave, but double weaves will create a tighter and more private fence. While wattling requires only a basic skill set, readers who lack the time for such projects can also look into local fencing services for professional planning and advice.
