    Weaving Wood: Twig Towers and Wattle Fences Pruning season is here, which means that many of us will quickly accumulate a small mountain of superfluous sticks. At my house, many pruned branches are given a second life as woven wattle fences, plant supports, and twig towers for growing vines in containers. If you’ve itched to make natural structures for your garden, pruning season is the best time to try.

Weave a raised bed of stakes and flexible twigs.

Wattle and daub is one of the oldest building techniques dating back to the Bronze Age and beyond. Wattling is a way to build walls by weaving long flexible sticks in and out of upright posts. Hazel, which is pliable and grows naturally long, is a good species to use for wattle. It is also the preferred wood used by straw bale builders to pin bales together.

You could make the planters different heights and decorate with plastic wrought iron stair steps or half circles

I wonder if we could do a design like this but actually use stones and concrete to stick them together. Would be one of the more permanent houses we ever made for May Day. The carved clay is a good idea too though. Much easier. Each kid could build a floor.

6' plant pyramid. I would love to do this with our strawberry plants.

"Pleaching or plashing was common in gardens from the late Middle Ages until the 18th century. This technique is a kind of weaving of the branches of deciduous trees or shrubs to form a living fence. Sometimes branches woven together grow together, a natural grafting known as inosculation. Sir Walter Scott brought the technique back to popularity in England when he described such a fence in The Fortunes of Nigel."
