gardening info- willow fence

We put up a living willow fence(well I hope it lives) around the small pond at the National Wildflower Centre.The willow used is the same as the willow that is used for biomass,I was told it is known as Q83,the main problem is not to allow the willow to dry out.I decided to reduce the height of the willow to the height in the photos to reduce windrock which could be a factor in it failing to root. All being well if it takes the branches that will shoot up can be interwoven eventually making a really secure living fence or feature.
