Dealing with high winds in your garden plan
There’s no getting away from the fact that gardening means dealing with the weather. Whatever happens, it’s not going anywhere and we can’t control it so, the more we can accommodate and work with it, the better. This is something Town and Country Gardens can help you with when we offer you garden maintenance in Wimbledon.
Town and Country Gardens can adapt to all sorts of different situations and today we are looking at the effect high winds have on the garden. Whether you have a particularly exposed garden or you are just concerned about some of the high winds we have experienced over the winter, there are things you can do to keep your garden looking its best and protect your plants. When we offer you garden maintenance in Wimbledon, we can make specific recommendations based on an assessment of your outdoor space.
Good fences make good neighbours
It can be tempting to go low-budget when you are getting your fence sorted out. If you need to, that’s fine and we can help you find the sturdiest option in your price range. However, the fact is that an investment in a quality fence can save you money in the long run because it won’t come apart at the first sign of a stiff breeze. If you want to spend a little more, we can help you find a fence that is aesthetically enriching to your garden as well as practical when we offer you garden maintenance in Wimbledon.
Natural barriers like hedges can offer shelter to well-placed plants. When acting as a shield, hedges offer less rigid resistance to the wind than fences do and they can look very attractive. They are also a haven for garden-friendly wildlife.
Tie up your plants
Unless you want to plant species that are particularly well adapted to a windy climate, you may just need to offer some of your plants a little extra support during the windy season. You can tie them up using bamboo supports. This saves you limiting your choices especially if you are only worried about occasional gusts. Remember they might need a little extra water after a windy day as well!Back to the Blog
