A shade cloth can help protect your plants from the wind. They’re usually not made of impermeable fabric, which is a good thing.
Put the hardiest and/or tallest plants closest to the wind and use them as a shield. For example, you might set up some shrubs or small trees with flowering plants in front of them.
Unlike shade cloths, Perspex won’t have any impact on light levels or privacy. If you plan to go down this route, use Perspex or polycarbonate sheeting rather than acrylic.
Planting a hedge is a long-term solution that’s best suited to gardens or larger outdoor spaces. Hedges are one of the most effective natural windbreaks, which is one of their main purposes.
The main advantage of hurdles is that you can move them, which is helpful if the wind constantly changes direction.
