Windy garden

Posted: 25/09/2012 at 11:22

We have a very windy garden (up in Newcastle upon Tyne), it's quite small and was a completely blank canvas when we started - we have been working hard to transform it but I hate to see all my plants getting completely battered by the wind. 

I have just been reading about windbreak netting - has anyone else used this and how do you rate it? Or would you suggest a hedgerow as a more effective windbreak?

To the side of the house there is an area I could possibly put a hedge in against our boundary (timber fence and brick wall) although there's not enough room for it to be very wide. The soil is clayey and wet.

Any thoughts / suggestions would be greatly received. Thank you.
