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.

Sir Walter Scott brought the technique back to popularity in England when he described such a fence in The Fortunes of Nigel.
