Wattle Hurdles

A very rustic option

As a rustic alternative to panels or close board, wattle hurdles are an interesting option. A product dating back many years and now a dying trade, the hurdles are constructed from interwoven hazel or willow branches—the hazel hurdles are made from much thicker branches than the willow (pictured above).

A more contemporary alternative is a woven oak hurdle (pictured right).
