Wattle Garden Beds Different Ideas Using Green Tree Branches as a Building Material

By driving stakes into the ground vertically then weaving branches in and out of the vertical stakes – you can create a wattle garden bed.

With the same method, you can make an wattle green branch arbor arch by creating a long narrow panel, standing it up in a rounded vertical  U shape and attaching it securely in place with tent stakes until the green branches dried into the shape.

Types of Woods that work well for this project:

Ash – durable, not flexible – good for handles

Aspen – young saplings are best

Birch – young saplings are best

Cedar – best for fence posts

Oak, Dogwood & Sumac – good for intricate bends, very flexible

Willow – best for bentwood, and weaving

Flexible vines for decorative weaving are honeysuckle and grapevine.
