What's a Wattle?
After a year of research, design and prototyping, our Pinewood Forest team finally zeroed in on a remarkable enhancement to our main entrance. The challenge was to create a bridge railing that would be totally unexpected and signal that you have arrived in a special place. The answer was found in a centuries old European tradition of weaving wood saplings to create a all-natural tapestry. Most commonly used to create garden fencing, in this application the combination of vertical posts and horizontal stringers helped fashion a bridge railing so beautiful that it causes people to slow down to take a second look. With the simplest of tools and minimal hardware, this railing serves its functional purpose of safety, while also serving as a piece of natural art.
This attention to detail can be found throughout Pinewood Forest as our team works to design, build and serve a remarkable community for creatives, artists, storytellers and makers. Come see us at Pinewood Forest and check out the only Wattle bridge rail in Georgia...at least we think so.
