My own natural looking fence design.

Last year I dediced to cut down two large birch trees, because we didn't get much sun light in the garden anymore and the millions of seeds floating through the air were driving me nuts! image

Of course it's too bad to have to cut two nice trees, so I wanted something special back. Not just a wooden fence or something, no I wanted something where nature can grow as it pleases. (within certain limits of course)

I made a video of the whole project so I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed making my natural looking fence.

    Even more cuttings for the fence. I can dig them out at some spots, but this is easier to put into the ground and I'm in no hurry. (The wood thingy is from my wife, if all goes well it well end up in a pot)

    It's alive! Of all the dozens of ivy cuttings I put into the ground one is very happily growing, let's hope all other will follow soon! image

    We had quite a hail storm yesterday, as a result a small river flew into the gravel surrounding my fence. My creation fortunately was able to get rid of the water as fast as it flew in. I was a bit worried about that, because last year during creation water flew out slowely resulting in a shallow pool.

    Had to close the only open part of my fence with iron wire, left over concrete mesh and wooden sticks to keep neighbouring cats using our garden as a shortcut. Now cats can only get out of the garden via the laurel hedge into our neighbours garden who happen to have two dogs, instead of the one dog my wife has.image

    Of course I didn't forgot to leave an opening for hedgehogs (not shown in picture.)

    The ivy on this spot isn't sure yet if it wants to grow or not. image

  • The rear of the fence starts to be covered nicely with all kinds of plants, the topped off ash trees are doing great also!


  • Next to 1001 other things in the garden that have been done, the first bucket with plants have been installed. More rocks and pebbles are needed to blend in the "gravel pit" with the rest of the garden.
