Wattle screens are made to the sizes required. These are made by nailing droppers onto a wooden wattle frame. The end result is a rigid Wattle screen. Normally Black Wattle Screens are made up to 1,8 / 2 m high and 2 m wide, although larger screens are requested. Nails are used to secure the droppers to the frame.
Rigid Woven Screens
Woven Wattle Screens are really interesting as they are fixed in place almost entirely from the wattle sticks themselves. These are woven onto the wood frame, Nails are added just for added measure.
Wattle Panels using Wire.
We also make panels of wattle wood made by threading wire thru the sticks. Holes are drilled five cm from each end of the stick, wire is then threaded thru the holes to create the Wattle panel which can be rolled up. Install by unrolling and lifting into place. These panels can be easily joined together to create seamless fences.
There are two types of wired panel that we make.
Solid consists of joining droppers together one after the other, to create a 2m long panel.
These are ideal for blocking an unsitely view, providing secure fencing for dogs/sheep/cattle or to provide a rustic but secure barrier.
Lattice or Spaced. These have spacers placed between each dropper to provide a secure fence that you can see thru with a rustic feel. Ideal for internal garden fencing, chicken tractors, enclosures for chckens/dogs/sheep/cattle/goats or to provide a rustic barrier.

Black Wattle Firewood, Wooden Poles and Wattle Screens
Our speciality is Black Wattle firewood. We sell 10 kg plastic bags to people for braais and barbeques as the coals burn hot and produce heat long enough to have an enjoyable braai.
Wattle is also ideal for use in home fire places because the wood does not splinter/shatter and produces a hot fire to warm the home. Meduim wood is slightly larger that the standard 10kg bag size, but is perfect for home fire places. Remember wider logs burn longer and thinner hotter and faster.
Larger logs are sold for Bonfires.
Wooden poles are produced from length of 1,2m to over 4m. Widths of up to 15 cm can be accommodated. Poles come either as is or with the bark removed. It is recomended that you have the bark removed especially if the wood is to be treated. Wood poles are used as tomato poles, post and rail fences and in other wooden constructions. Contact Us if you would like some wattle poles.
Wattle Screens and Woven panels
We make three types of Wattle screens or panels.
Wattle Roll Panels with threaded wire.
No nails no fuss !. Holes are drilled 5cm from either end of the wattle stick, both facing the same direction. Wire is then threaded thru the holes with a 15cm overlap on either side. They are then rolled up for handling. Errecting is a synch, just unroll and lift into place. Make seamless fences easily !
Wattle Sreens nailed onto a frame.
Normal Wattle Screens are made by nailing wooden droppers or sticks to a wattle wood frame. This makes for an eye catching, rigid screen.
Wattle Screens woven on a frame.
When wet wattle is quite flexable and bendable. This is when Woven Wattle Screens can be made. The reid like sticks are mouded onto the wood frame to produce a very eye catching sturdy panel. Whats nice is the wattle sticks applying pressure is what holds the panel together. We do nail the loose ends for safety sake.

The DIY reseller kit is all the wood required to make a 2 m by 2 m wattle screen. (Like the ones on the side of the road)
KIT includes :
67/69 dropper sticks 2m long each (enough for a 2m screen)
3 frame sticks providing support at the back each 2m long and slightly thicker
The sticks in the above KIT are tied with old baling twine (reusability) to form a wattle wood bundle. The Wattle bundles ( ±15 kits in Bakkie ) can thus be easily transported to a destination where the Wattle screens will be built and presumably sold.
±15 kits fit onto a bakkie up to 30 with a trailer !
The reseller then assembles the screens into the design they like (i.e. reduce the size to 1,8 by 1,8 ) or make Wattle panels by drilling holes through the droppers and threading with wire through them. Join the Wattle Panels to make a neat rustic Wattle fence.
