wind proofing fences

We have 25 fence panels running along the side of our garden. It seems that every gust of wind brings another panel out.

the problem, or maybe one of the problems, is that the panels are solid so the wind can't pass through.

I have tried to persuade OH to replace the lot with more suitable design but it will mean a huge expense in one go.

Would it be a good idea to grow climbers on the fence for extra support/buffering?

OHs idea of a 'pre-fence' in front of this one sounds plausible, what do you think?

thanks for ny comments.

Hi cowslip, I love all aspects of this forum. I understand your comments on the time some people have to comment and post. I've been in both position of posting several times a day (and yes even in a way which has been obsessive, addictive and unhealthy), and then not posting for weeks end. I consider that I have friends and virtual friends on here. A forum is just what you want from it really (for me, at a point I probably needed the addictive part to help distract me from other things and concentrate me on healthy gardening...nut said there). Gossip and friendship is as vvaluable for some as it is frustrating and judged by others. Advice about particular topics is interesting for some and obvious(perhaps irritating to others). We are all here for our own reasons, reasons which change and are flexible. Maybe that's just me?
