What are Hazel Hurdles

Hazel hurdles are a traditional and very popular and attractive alternative to garden panels or garden screens and wind breaks.

Well made hurdles use good quality graded split hazel, which is twisted around end posts to produce a very strong and robust hurdle. Traditional makers of hazel hurdles source their materials from managed woodland where coppicing has the added advantage on the flora and fauna of an English woodland as shown below.

High quality hazel hurdles are durable and longlasting with an average lifetime of 7-8 years untreated but if periodically treated this can be extended by 4 or 5 years.
