A mainstay in traditional English gardens, rolled willow fences are lightweight, long-lasting, and provide instant privacy. Slender willow branches are woven together with nearly invisible steel wire; simply attach to an existing chain-link fence or stakes to create an appealing, natural-looking fence.

Above: Willow Fencing is available online through the Gardener’s Supply Company; a 13-foot-long, 5-foot-high section is $49.95 (buy two or more and the price is $45 each).
