Rustic twig fences take several forms. They are all built from natural materials, of course, but the structure itself and the methods used to build them are unique to each type.
Some types of twig fencing that you may use in a garden setting are the palisade style, picket and lattice.
All these are useful in different styles of garden.
Choosing the right rustic garden fence design is an important decision.
Look at the style, height, purpose and construction of each type to make the right choice.
Some rustic fences are built to keep animals out of the garden - deer require a fence over 2.2 meters (8'+) high to discourage them and rabbits are deterred by lining the base of the fence with small chicken wire up to 34-50cm (15" - 30") high.
Don’t use any kind of flexible netting like fishing nets as the rabbits will
attempt to push through and get entangled, with bad results all round. The goal is to discourage them, not kill them.
You may want a rustic twig fence for privacy from neighbors which will need to be less open in design, or for vines to grow on requiring a sturdier construction.
Decide on the purpose for your rustic twig fence, and build accordingly.
