Agritecture

AgritectureWe used the A-frame again to draw the contours for terracing this somewhat steep slope. The amount of material needed to build an almost 1 meter high wall around the projected terrace got me thinking. Then I remembered reading about Agritecture, the art of growing and weaving your walls from tree branches instead of building them. Low-cost and ecological, it just takes more patience. Let’s try. Aidan is planting a row of cuttings here, taken from a hedge that we are pruning elsewhere.

    Have just been reading a blog from someone I know who was describing hedge layering technique with Hawthorne to create a strong, impenetrable barrier for sheep. Are there any suitable shrubs where you are to do this? Oleander?

      Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, we have Oleander. It would make a nice flowering hedge indeed! And it is easy to grow.
