New willow season started again! Fresh willow trees are again fully available.

The willow branch bench

In collaboration with renowned designer Floortje Bijvoet, Van Aalsburg B.V. presents the ‘Willow branch bench’. This is a durable garden bench that consists of two metal profiles. You can fill this yourself with pruned branches. You can use your own ‘pruning waste’ for this, or the branches can be ordered with the bank.

We recommend a branch length of the willow branch bank of 1.80 meters , where the protruding branch length is approximately 15 centimeters (this is the branch length that protrudes from the side of the metal profile). Of course it is also possible to make the sofa longer or shorter as desired, the sofa will then automatically become longer or shorter in its entirety.

Jack and Kees rang the bell in the morning at 7.40 am with the announcement that they would come and install the ordered fence. Then there was continuous work until about 10 hours before the first meal. What a pace those men had. After the posts had been driven, the shape of the fence was determined in close consultation.

Jack and Kees patiently explained what was possible. Just after noon (1.30 pm) the fence was ready and everything was cleaned up. A clean workplace was left behind.

For the purpose of the settlement, the fence was carefully measured and the final m2 determined.

TOP company, TOP professionals, TOP fence !!!! We are very satisfied.

On Ameland it is not customary for 'massive' fences to be installed. A low fence or hedge is most common. Van Aalsburg's willow fence seemed like a good interim solution.

The result exceeds expectations. It is winter now, but we are convinced that in the summer, with a filled border, it will be a beautiful picture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the ‘Branch Bench' comfortable?
Yes! More than 200 visitors to Tuinidee (Garden Ideas 2020 exhibition in the Brabanthallen) tried out the bench. They were all surprised at how comfortable it was!
Can the branches be pulled out?
No, that’s not possible. The last branches are hammered in tightly and cannot be pulled out.
Can branches be ordered to refill the bench afterwards?
Yes, it is always possible to make a subsequent delivery of branches. The branches can easily be ordered from the webshop.
Can other furniture be ordered?
Yes, it is possible to order a picnic table - for more information please contact us. In addition, tables and chairs are currently being designed using COR-TEN steel and willow branches.
Can the branches and frames be ordered separately?
Yes, it is possible to order the different parts separately as a DIY kit.
Does the Branch Bench give off rust?
The Branch Bench is made of weather resistant steel. COR-TEN steel has a self-protecting rust layer that naturally forms over time. This ‘patina’ protects the underlying material from coming into contact with oxygen and thus stops the rusting process. COR-TEN steel is therefore very sustainable and does not need to be painted. However, the build-up of patina can produce rust run-off. To prevent this the COR-TEN steel can be treated with COR-TEN steel varnish.
