Pleaching and plashing…

  This is so cool! ! !  Would it work well with forsythia?  When I wanted to keep the new growth off the trunks of my redbuds, I would just ‘wipe’ them with my hands, when the new growth was just beginning to show.  Do you think it could be that simple if trying to grow a living fence like this?

  Pleaching or plashing was common in gardens from the late Middle Ages until the 18th century. This technique is a kind of weaving of the branches of deciduous trees or shrubs to form a living fence. Sometimes branches.
