Brendan Moar demonstrates how brushwood such as Natureed cladding could be used to cover unsightly walls or fences…and offer privacy from pesky neighbours!
Natureed is the trademark name for a particular brand of reed cladding. Basically the reeds are bound together with wire and cut into panels. Natureed is made with rust resistant wire and is apparently resistant to termites and moisture. The reeds provide a strong material, but allow light and air to flow through. The brushwood can be cut easily with secateurs and applied in either single or multiple layers. It's ideal for fencing, walls, awnings, or partitions.
- To apply Natureed, use small lengths (5cm) of thin galvanised tie-wire, tightened and twisted, or fence clips, staples and/or construction adhesive.
- Affix to fencing wires, wire mesh, paling and metal surfaces, timber battens, masonry walls or overhead plastic sheeting for filtered sunlight.
- Apply in single, double or multiple layers, according to the degree of privacy, light filtration and air movement required.
- To maintain, wipe or brush occasionally with an exterior wood protective oil, to remove any air pollutant surface deposits and restore lustre.
