Dead Hedge

We had a bunch of extra branches. So many…


(Horrible picture. I couldn’t find a good picture and didn’t think to take one, so this is a screen shot from a video.)

The pile is gone. Or rather moved. We made a dead hedge out of them.


It has the following function:

  • Screen from neighbor
  • Future source of firewood
  • Place to put yard clippings
  • Wildlife habitat
  • Used up old branches

It was a fun build and went faster than anticipated. We simply used eight t-posts as a border, and filled it with sticks.


I like how it looks better than, say a white vinyl fence. But it is a bit wild. It does do what we wanted and screen the neighbor’s yard, and it only cost $50 for the t-posts.
