HOW TO BUILD A WATTLE FENCE (DIY)

Wattle fence technique is a quick and affordable (free) way to build fencing.  It's easy to make and beautiful for any garden.    They are traditionally made of willow branches.   If you cannot find willow then any type of branch that you can bend slightly and weave can be used.  
I love wattle fences because it adds an element of natural beauty to my garden and gives it a medieval feel.   The first time I saw this technique being used was at a community garden in my city park.  The person gathered branches of similar sizes and weaved them into a work of art.  It protected their vegetable garden from the deer and rabbits that roamed freely at the park expecially at night.  

Below are a few examples of different types of wattle fencing.  I am also attaching a link that provides intructions on how to build one yourself.
