Creative uses for Tree Branches

Days ago I gave our ‘wattle like’ bush a massive trim, to allow more light onto the far top vegetable patch.  As I previously mentioned, I used to place the trimed branches of this tree bush in the green recycle bin.

It only recently dawned on me what a waste of resource this was and hence I needed to start getting creative, with the trimmed branches.


Long straight branches, to be used as garden trellis - for peas, beans and tomatoes etc.


Fire wood


Branches used as fence stakes - allowing light through but not toddlers or small white fluffy dogs.


Long skinny and flexible branches to be used for weaving - baskets and fences


Leaves and small branches used as mulch in an area we need to rejuvenate the top soil.
