Assembly manual

How to make a willow fence?

To make a willow fence, we use the approximately 5-metre-long branches of a willow, braided around chestnut or willow posts. We call these willow branches or also willow slats. We have our own willow nursery for this purpose.

The sturdy 2 to 3 cm thick branches of a willow are supple and flexible. This makes them ideal for making a fence or natural partition in the garden.

Plaiting a willow fence is best done from November to June. This is when the branches are at their most pliable. It is also important to make the fence quickly (what is quick, within 3 weeks is quick enough) after receiving the willows. Otherwise, the branches will dry out and break when braiding.

How long do you spend braiding?

It depends on the size of your desired fence or enclosure. On average, it takes one day with 2 people to weave 15 m². And that will be a great day. After all, it is quite an experience to be involved in one of the oldest crafts in our country.

So get to work!

Below is a short step-by-step plan for making a willow fence or partition. This way you are fully prepared and can start your DIY kit right away.

Step 1: the preparation

First of all, clear the surface of weeds and level it well. The flatter the surface, the nicer and straighter the end result. Then put the posts in the ground.

The posts should be 60 to 80 cm into the ground. This ensures that the fence stands securely and does not blow over easily. An auger can help you make the holes for the posts more easily.

If you order the posts directly with the DIY package, just fill in the desired height of the fence. We will automatically add the extra centimetres you need for sufficient strength.

To protect the posts against wood rot and mould, we offer you the option of ordering postsavers with the DIY package. You apply these postsavers around the posts with a torch. They will at least double the lifespan of your posts. Our online manual describes exactly how to install the postsavers.

Step 2: braiding

Once the posts are in place, the braiding begins. Always braid the willow branches one way. So from left to right or right to left.

Then braid the branches around the posts. Start at the first post and braid the branch until it runs out. Then cut the branch just behind one pole and start on the second branch. Weave it from the second post and continue until you reach the last post.

In this way, you weave layer after layer and build up the fence. In our online manual we explain exactly how to braid the branches for the best result.

Step 3: Maintenance for longer life

A willow fence will last on average 10 years if you maintain it properly. We recommend using linseed oil for this purpose. Of course, you can also order this directly with your DIY kit.

It is best to treat the willow fence with linseed oil 6 weeks after installation, if the weather is dry. You can then repeat this treatment annually.

We also recommend giving 1 bucket a day to the willow poles when the weather is dry. You only need to do this for the first four works after placement.

Then place climbing plants against the fence. Think well-known ivy, beautiful wisteria or fresh Clematis Montana. This will instantly make your garden a lot greener.
