Fences

At Brampton Willows we are able to make a wide range of willow fence to suit our clients' varied needs. However, we regret we do not make prefabricated willow hurdles or panels. Our fences are physically woven on site, in situ, so that our willow can follow every turn, dip and bend in the landscape as closely as possible, resulting in a tailor-made fence second to none.

Nassau, The Bahamas

From 1998 to 2004, we constructed willow fences for a client on his island in The Bahamas. These withstood five Hurricanes including hurricanes 'Floyd', 'Frances' and 'Jean'. Sadly, the property sustained a devastating fire in early 2015 and all our fencing was destroyed. The fences had been regularly sprayed with linseed oil and turpentine substitute to protect the willow and despite up to 16 years of extremes of weather, prior to the fire, the willow was still in good condition.

Storm Damage

Hurricane Floyd in 1999, with winds of up to 140 miles an hour, whipped up a 20-foot tidal surge which smashed through the client’s garden, leaving a trail of destruction. This surge completely flattened our fencing, but rather than damaging the willow, it actually bent the 2” diameter stainless steel supporting tubes, which had been bedded 2 feet into rock. All the steel had to be cut and replaced but the willow, despite being covered with rocks and debris, was almost completely undamaged. Since then there have been four other hurricanes on the Island including "Frances" and "Jean" in 2004. Despite sustained winds of up to 120mph, there has been no significant damage to our fencing.

Tree Damage

In October 2003 we made a fence on top of a low brick wall and incorporated 35mm solid steel bars into the wall to support the fence. In July 2006, part of a mature Cedar tree next to the fence collapsed on top of it and rather than ripping the willow off the steel bars, it actually bent these massive supports and yet the willow only suffered superficial damage! However, because two of these supports were bent at just above the wall height, we had to cut a section of the willow work out in this area, cut the bent steel and weld them together again so that they were straight. The willow work was then repaired and the fence was as good as new. After a few months the new work will 'weather' and it will soon be difficult to see that anything happened!
