An excellent option for fencing a summer cottage is a wicker fence. The first advantage of this option is that it is an economical fence. Of course, you can buy ready-made material, but if you live in an area where there are many growths of trees, then you do not have to invest in it. And the second advantage of this fence is beauty. This type of fencing has a rustic style, which is very well suited for summer cottages, where you just come to relax or fry the barbecue.

So, in order to make such a fence, you need to prepare the material. The most favorable time for this is the end of spring. It will be easier for you to harvest branches for the fence, if they are without leaves. In addition, it is better to use fresh plants, rather than dry ones, so that they bend well and do not break.

First, pillars are driven into the ground. You can use wider branches for them. To make it easier to drive them into the ground, you can sharpen the edge of the column with an ax, making it a peg.

To hammer the posts it is convenient to use a sledgehammer.

Pillars are clogged at the same level with a step of no more than one meter. Although there are no specific rules, you decide which step to take between the posts. The deeper to drive in the fence posts, the better. In order for the structure to be strong, it is recommended to drive the support posts at least 40 cm in depth.

After all the pillars are installed, you can start weaving the fence. For this, thinner branches are taken and wrapped around the posts by a snake. The option that is provided in the illustration is the most common and simple. Here you need to bind the branches one by one with branches. Each subsequent row is interwoven in mirror image from the previous row.

If the length of the fence exceeds the length of the rods for weaving, then it is recommended to do everything in series. For example, your fence should be 10 meters long, and your rods should have an approximate length of 2 meters. In this case, it will be more efficient and more beautiful to first go through the first row along the entire length of the fence, installing 5 rods of 2 meters each, and then proceed to the second row. If you first completely drive out 2 meters of the fence, then two more, etc., these fragments will be visible, since there will be no smooth interweaving. In addition, it is much more beautiful when rods of approximately the same thickness are used.
These fences can be of different heights. It can be low fences, to protect the alley with flowers, or the separation of beds. Also, such fences can be used as the main fences of summer cottages, recreation areas, or even street cafes.

    We have repeatedly built a fence in nature. Sometimes you come to the shore of the lake, get up overnight, and the wind is such that the tent blows off too, and it is not comfortable to bite on a section open to all winds.
    In such conditions, it is just better to use branches with foliage - it creates a good barrier to air flow, it is warm, cozy, and there is an opportunity to hide from the eyes of other vacationers.
