Hazel and Willow Hurdle Fences

Traditional Hazel or Willow woven hurdle fence panels

Our willow and Hazel hurdles are special order only (not a standard stock item) with each one made by hand. They make a perfect backdrop to any traditional planting scheme and not only act as a screen and windbreak helping to protect more delicate plants, they can become part of the garden architecture allowing plants to intertwine between the spaces.
Hazel or Willow Hurdles we are one of the few suppliers in Hertfordshire who provide these wonderful traditional and rustic looking fence panels. They are much stronger than they may look and have been used in the countryside for hundreds of years, they areĀ  sustainably sourced too.

Differences between Hazel Hurdle fence panels and Willow Hurdle fence panels

The Willow hurdles are a more delicate and are hand crafted from thinner more wispy willow branches. The Hazel hurdles are hand made using a thicker branch which makes them more robust.
Both materials have a tight weave structure for a rugged and long lasting construction.
