Proper Placement of Barbed Wire

Make sure to incorporate the barbed wire into all the buttresses and wrap it around any corners ending it at the box form openings (rather than at a corner). If you are building earthbag walls that are two bags wide, lay the barbed wire in a repeating figure eight pattern to help link the side-by-side bags together. Remember to stagger the seams where bags meet (Fig. 5.8 & 5.9).

5.8: To maintain as much tensile strength as possible, continue barbed wire around corners, and integrate into buttresses and intersecting walls.

5.9: A wall two bags wide will interlock better if the barbed wire is laid in a figure-eight pattern.
