Tips from a French Kitchen Garden - FineGardening
"Willow makes a lovely, living fence. Here’s a very decorative, DIY fence. Willow stems, cut while dormant, were stuck in the ground at an angle. The bundles of three yellow whips were woven into a diamond pattern, and more were woven across the top to create a border. Sturdy posts every 5' stabilize the fence, and a soaker hose keeps the willow stems moist while they form roots. Regular pruning is needed to keep the lovely pattern of the stems exposed, but the visual impact is worth the effort.
