qualities and types of material

Decorative fences woven wood, or, as theycalled in Ukrainian - fence have all the advantages of this type of material.

Firstly, such a construction would be environmentally friendly, becausefor construction uses only raw materials without any harmful impurities.

Beauty - another indisputable property of natural wood.Even by itself, it looks much more beautiful than, for example, a blank concrete wall, or plastic fence, and decorate this design much easier.

Wicker design - is cheap and simple in construction.Make it yourself is easy, and the material for it can even be free if you decide to make a fence of stakes and branches of trees on the site.


finished decorative braided section are, of course, more expensive.

However, this fence has drawbacks.Among them, the complexity of the repair, if the bars are deformed, it is necessary to change the fence completely or section where the item came into disrepair.

Another drawback - not very long service life of such a construction, sinceit is susceptible to weather conditions.

Finally, make the fence as the primary is unlikely to succeed, becauseit is quite low, and does not protect from the wind and penetration.Use it only as a decoration portion or small fence some portion thereof.

suitable material for such a fence is not difficult to choose: it can be made of boards or branches of trees growing on the site.

Tyn may be low, and serve as an element of design, or fencing for flower beds and flower beds, or space zoning area, or have a high fence and be present for the entire site.

The most common hurdle fences made of willow, wicker or hazel, but will not be worse look and serve as a structure made of wooden planks.


fence from boards even better, if you want it to be more reliable and deaf, without gaps.If desired, the fence of planks can even be used as the main fence, if you make it the right size.

Another advantage of this structure - an attractive appearance on both sides, becauseit will not be visible beams and frames, which are needed to connect the intake of other materials.

most modern material for this construction - PVC.Fences made of PVC most durable and easily erected - they can be dismantled if necessary, to remove, for example, in the winter, and in the new season to gather again.This increases their already considerable service life.


This type of fences is immune to the problems that afflict the fence made of natural materials: the processes of decay, the attacks of parasites, reaction tomoisture and burn in the sun.

only disadvantage of this construction - an artificial material.If you want it real wicker fence with his hands, it is best to use wooden materials.

See photos from the fences of different types of materials and correlate them with the design of your site to decide which one will suit you the most.

Stages of construction

First you need to make a calculation of the area under the fence and see how many vine willow, hazel twigs, or boards you need for the erection of the structure.

In the absence of this kind of trees on site or nearby, you can use any other wood, but still better to try to find this timber, asit is easier to work with, and the appearance of the fence will be better.

Rods under the fence should be chosen, focusing on the number of twists - the more they are intended, the thinner must be twigs.

to "body" of the vine has become more flexible, soak them first in water - it will improve the circulation of sap in the tree, so that the rods will be better entwine with each other.

If several bends will need, it is not just soak it, and make a steam bath - then twigs and vines razopreyut will bend completely free.Selection

step also depends on the thickness of the bars, as well as the location of the fence idea.The bars to accommodate a fence is necessary to place at a distance no closer than 1.5 meters apart, vertically driven into the ground.

to construction was more sustainable, it can not be used wooden beams and metal structures or tube - in this case, the fence will serve you longer.

Vine willow or other branches have to pass through from different sides stake - as is the horizontal weave.To make it vertical, vines need to pass through around the poles.

This type is somewhat more complicated, but will in due course more attractive, becausethe plant can eventually grow into the earth, and then you get a hedge.

fence boards can also be designed as a vertical and horizontal type of weaving.

for its fixation in each bay to install two boards of small width.Fasten them horizontally, vertical if planned weaving and vertical if on the contrary.

begin work must be from the post, moving to the center.The resulting structure of the boards better be secured by screws or nails.The very top board can be simply nailed to the support - it also adds stability of the fence.


design woven fence

Ready fence of sticks or boards can be left as is, and you can improve his appearance, to better fit into the site design.

easiest way to do this is by painting the structure.This will not only improve the aesthetics of the fence, but also extend the service life.

Before you paint the fence, it should be sanded.To bark shot easier, dip the branches vines in the water and leave for a week - then the work will be much easier.

choice of material for painting depends on the color that you want.

If it is white - that treat the vines with hydrogen peroxide.For brown suit or potassium permanganate stain, and for the gray - you need to walk through the bars of iron (you can use an iron body).

If you do not want to mess with the long fence, you can opt for a fence pvc - is the pre-fabricated construction, does not require any specific skills and tools.

Also it is possible to buy a ready-made network of plastic or sectional fence - for its production using grid gitter.

Such fences are less attractive, but they are built quickly, and quickly removed, and improve their aesthetic properties, you can use the site decor.

Decorative elements - another perfect complement for woven fence.Better pick up things from natural materials - wood or clay.For example, pots or jars made of clay, can be placed on the stakes of the fence.

If you want to land has become more "peasant" look, you can install a number of wooden planks of the rough table and chairs - they can serve not only as decoration, but also quite functional area addition.

a good idea to look simple wooden wheel or even a whole cart, if your plot size allows.

Wicker sculpture - is another interesting "trick" for the decoration of the fence.At first glance, these elements may seem invisible, but balls of vines, figures of birds and other elements noticeably enliven the landscape.

Flowers for decorating woven fence - the most affordable option for the decoration design.If the fence is small, it is possible to make the fence beds, and it will look quite organically next to the plants.

If it stands alone, it can be planted near the plants.In addition to the colors, it may be the grape vine or plant creepers.Over time, they completely cover the fence, and you get a real hedge.


Before you begin, watch the video and photosstages of the creation of the fences of boards, vines and artificial material - it clearly shows how to make a woven fence and easier for you to work on its creation on the site.
