/ Willow Branches
The buildings in living willows are an excellent opportunity to create summer pavilions and play structures for children.
They also offer the opportunity to involve structures from an ecological-landscape perspective to insert new greenery in the gardens. These deciduous living structures change with the seasons, becoming excellent hiding places and shading opportunities in the summer and instead well-defined but sunny structures in the winter.
Project Operative in:
Cut a ‘whip’ off a willow tree, shove it in the ground at any angle, and it will probably grow. Not only that, it will do so even in the swampiest of environments, reliably shooting up a couple of meters a year.
As a result, it’s possible to make gorgeous and practical living willow structures in your garden. Arches, gazebos, pergolas, dens, play areas, and even so-called ‘fedges’ can all be constructed from as little as a willow twig. Michael will teach you how to use and create them.
