Planning a Garden ....The Wind Issue.

Manager from Ingrid Gotlieb Landscape Design + Consultancy

I often get asked as a Garden Design Consultant what to plant to reduce the wind. Often people are disappointed that their property is in a high wind zone and so they aren't able to enjoy being outside and also find their fruit trees don't survive! Be very careful to consider the wind … View moreI often get asked as a Garden Design Consultant what to plant to reduce the wind. Often people are disappointed that their property is in a high wind zone and so they aren't able to enjoy being outside and also find their fruit trees don't survive! Be very careful to consider the wind factor when buying a property! Wind may be reduced though not necessary eliminated. A common, though brilliant tree/shrub to use for shelter is Griselinia littoralis.
