Until a few centuries ago, our ancestors from acutewooden stakes to create a reliable and beautiful fence - the fence palings. Today it is a functional protective structure is once again becoming popular in the country building. Palisade is the perfect addition to the elements of the site "Ethno" decoration or decorated in a "rustic". In addition to the decorative appeal of the fence of logs is excellent protection against encroachment of unwanted guests. To break this fence is not under force even strongman having nedyuzhy abilities. Palisade is a great alternative to traditional concrete, brick or metal protective structures. To erect a stockade can be just a few days, and will last wooden fence than a dozen years.
Palisade is assembled from cylindrical timbertimber having a uniform diameter bore. Because today the owners of suburban areas there is no need for a powerful defensive palisade against enemy attacks, everything for the fence is sufficient to use the logs with a diameter of 10-15 cm.
The height of the timber is determined based onpurpose building envelope. For external fence protects against penetration of thieves, it does not require a log lower in height than 2 meters. On the improvement of internal fences delimiting portion zone and protecting domestic animals, small fit a log in half a meter in height.
To log not staggered in the wind and are securelyfixed, they must be recessed. The variant of securing logs on the ground raised the crossbar, which is fixed to the load-bearing pillars of the building envelope. In this case, the logs will not move deep and full-length will be placed above the ground.
Determine the height of the product, it should be borne in mind that will be spent on strengthening the structure in the traditional way arrangement 1/3 of the height of the barrel
Choosing material for a fence, it is necessary to focus primarily on the quality of the logs
Saving is not relevant: the quality of the product depends on the service life of the structure. And therefore it is better to spend more, but to get a fence that will last exactly two decades than to save money and buy the fence just 2-3 years. The surface of the timber in cross section does not have any recesses and protrusions. A distinctive feature of the stockade - pointed tip.
Sling log looks like a big pointy simple pencil. Sharpened logs at an angle of 35-40 ° with the help of the usual small hatchet.
In the traditional method, everything stockadeof the logs will be buried in the ground, it is fraught with rotting wood. Unprotected wood in 2-3 years to come into disrepair and collapse, and the protective structure to be completely replaced by the new. To prolong the life of the stockade, our ancestors treated the lower part of the stakes by charring in the fire. The result was 15 cm charred crust, which prevented the destruction of timber. Charring was subject not only recessed in the ground of the timber, but the barrel portion of 20-25 cm above the ground. This simple procedure will not only protect the wood from rotting, but also will protect her from parasites.
Today used a simpler method protective wood treatment. Before instillation lower portion of each log is immersed in hot bitumen

The traditional way everything stockadeIt looks like this: a pointed lower end of the timber stuck in the ground, then poured into the hole a little bit of water and re-stick the same post. Screwed to the beam until it firmly engages in the soil. To facilitate the process of using a heavy hammer, but work with it very carefully, so as not to damage the integrity of the timber. Some builders in order to protect the pins from the chips and cracks, wear on hammers protective plastic caps.
The modern version involves the erection of a palisade arrangement of the trench depth of half a meter
20-30 cm carpet the bottom of the trench of sand orgravel "cushion". After her close to each other establish the poles, preventing the formation of gaps between them. The trench is filled with a layer of earth and carefully compacted. To improve the efficiency tamping the soil should be watered with water. To increase the reliability and durability of the building envelope can be additionally using two horizontal crossbar of thick timber. They are placed parallel to each other at the lower height of 20 cm from the ground level and the upper - 20 cm below the tops of the palisade.
At the final stage of the fence arrangement for giving more natural stockade, it is desirable to treat the surface of a transparent varnish, primer or stain for wood
Council. Using different concentrations of stain can be enhanced decorative fence, turning it into honey-golden brown or chocolate shades.
For styling the interior space area can be used braided Palisade.
Beautiful wicker fence not only serve as a guard for the paths and flower beds, this element of landscape design on the right will be a real "highlight" of the decor
For a number of the major advantages of woven fences are:
- Environmentally friendly. When constructing the fence using only natural components, not harmful to human health.
- Decorative. Multilevel wicker fences interesting look in any corner of the area: as a miniature fences for mixborders, as elements of zoning, and even as a full-fledged high fence.
- The simplicity of the construction. The technique of weaving the fence under the force of even a novice to master gardener.
To produce such a fence can be used flexible branches vines, hazel, willow and even oak or pine.
The material for the fence are harvested in the fall. At this time the sap flow in plants is inhibited and the growth stops. For best suited thick branches 1-3 cm
Solving equip wicker fence on the siteyou need to mark territory. On the designated place dug a shallow trench, which is filled with a layer of sand. This sand "cushion" to provide drainage, thereby preventing decay recessed portion stakes.
After that you can drive a small stakes, placing them at a distance of half a meter apart. The base is ready, you can proceed to weaving.
Council. To make the branches more flexible, they can be pre-soak for a couple of days in warm water. To extend the life of stakes and branches, they must be treated with antiseptic.
Weaving begins with the lower tier. The technology is quite simple: the bars in turn is necessary to start from the opposite sides of their stake and stretching the entire length. As necessary, short bars are extended, as long are cut shears.
Depending upon the density of branches splicing,you can get hands-deaf or semi-transmissive solar rays fence. Classic woven fence regularly serve in the role of the decorative fencing for more than 5 years
