No, not the kind used in track and field (although if you really want to jump over them I won’t stop you), I mean the sort used to keep livestock in without breaking the budget on fencing. They look cool, and now is the perfect time of year to prune out branches and hurdle making materials. We use low ones to keep chickens out of spots we don’t want, and have a few that we use for moving livestock to create chutes – but I’m working on more. As long as it is time to prune trees and cut wood anyway, you might as well make some fence as well!
Two tutorials, first a written one here from the wonderful Alan Shepherd
A nice video using hazel as well:
Pretty cool, eh?
