How is natural briar for fences made?

The manufacturing process is really simple: it is cut 2 or 3 days before and placed crosswise in a machine that presses it and joins it with a galvanized wire about 0.4mm thick . In this way, it is possible to have a heather fabric that will be able to withstand strong winds and also the passage of time for an average of 10 years.

Once finished, the sharp branches are polished and it is rolled up in a tubular way to then tape it and store it in a warehouse until we want to use it, or go to a nursery to buy it.

Heather fabric is used to place fences in order to guarantee the privacy of a piece of land . Although there are other options, such as shading mesh or climbing plants, putting heather is a very successful idea for those looking to have a rustic-style garden without having to worry, at least for a decade, about maintenance or pests or diseases.

It is a way to save time and money on something that you know in advance will look great in your particular paradise. 

Where can you buy?

Heather fabric can be purchased at any nursery , both physical and online, as well as in large stores . They can also surely ask for it in gardening stores and even in those establishments where they sell a little of everything (food for animals, gardening tools and accessories, plants, fruits and vegetables, etc.).

The price is about 55 euros for a 1 x 3 meter mesh.
