Willow mats are made of 6-8 mm thick willow twigs and tied together with galvanised iron wire.
Our willow mats are 3 metres wide and available in different heights to suit almost any garden, patio or balcony. Willow mats can be used in many ways and are mainly used as cladding against existing fences, railings, wire fences or balustrades. Willow mats are also ideal for climbing plants.
When ordering, bear in mind that a willow mat is not 100% sight-proof. If you want a bit more privacy, we recommend double securing the mats for optimal visibility.
The lifespan of a willow mat is on average 2 to 5 years, depending on where you place it and the weather conditions.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGPeople often choose not to treat the willow mat and let it discolor and age naturally. Our advice is to treat it with Bamboo Booster. This can be applied several times a year with a cloth for optimal results. Bamboo Booster nourishes and protects the willow toe.

More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
