A Cactus Fence

While touring in Aruba this spring, I noticed that the residents made use of all the cactus growing there by creating living cactus fencing.

They simply dug a ditch in the area where the fence was to be located. Then, they picked out similar vertical cactus, cut it carefully and, after wetting the ditch, placed the cactus upright, in place.

After a while, the cactus rooted and “voila” a living cactus fence. I thought it to be a very creative way to use a plants that grew all over and instead of cutting them down as weeds, used them for a very practical purpose.
