In-situ Hurdles
In-situ hurdles are very versatile and we can design the installation to suit your garden. They can be woven on top of walls or directly into the ground following curves or around right angled corners, with straight, sloping or undulating top. The hazel can be woven in the round or traditionally riven (split or cleft), or a combination of the two, resulting in patterns as shown above. We use cleft sweet chestnut uprights which are naturally rot resistant giving the installation durability. There is no need for posts as the sweet chestnut is driven firmly into the ground before being woven around with the hazel, giving the hurdle strength.

Gate Hurdles
Gate hurdles are made from sweet chestnut or ash. These traditional hurdles make for an attractive fence, gate or trellis over which your plants can clamber. They are also very useful as temporary or permanent barriers for keeping kids, pets or chickens off the borders. They are strong, durable, elegant and moveable. Their open structure can be an advantage as they will not block out the light - or the view!
Gate hurdles are not actually meant to be used as hung gates. We make extra strong ones (heavy duty) for this purpose.
