These fence posts are made with juniper cedar trees, prominent in the Austin, Texas area. These specific posts were harvested straight from the surrounding land. It feels great to sustainably harvest our own wood for projects!
The branches are also being used on contour for water retention swales. Considering the slant of land; this one comes from two angles so we make an U with thicker posts to catch the water.This disperses the water holding it uphill.
Below it we made a pathway for water to escape so that it doesn’t make its own path to escape.
