Strong winds can be a gardener’s worst nightmare, especially salty winds in coastal areas. However, there are plenty of plants for gardens with high wind.
There are things you can do to help reduce the amount of breeze flowing in your garden. There are also shrubs and trees you can plant that deal with the wind very well.
So, to help out, here are some different plants suited to strong winds, including coastal salty winds. Find out how you can still have a thriving garden, no matter where you live!
When planting your windbreak, be mindful of the fact that it can spoil the view, or cause shade where you don’t want it, so be sure to take these things into consideration when planning.
An alternative would be to build a small bank with a few shrubs planted on top, and this will help restrict wind in the lower levels of the garden.
So, don’t shy away from your windy garden and use suitable plants and measures to make your breezy garden a beautiful and peaceful place to relax!
