Living Willow Hedges

Not only hedges that grow in pots or in the ground but fun structures for children to play in such as tunnels, . . .

Tunnels, igloos, woven hedges and abstract shapes lend movement to the garden because they are made with living willow. Green branches are used for the basic framework which, when planted in the ground, develop roots. In spring these structures are covered with leaves, while in winter the woven branches underneath reappear. Autumn pruning helps to maintain the shape.
