Windbreak Guide

Summer time is called garden time. But if the summer months do not want to be like you, then the joy of the beautiful weather can quickly disappear: For example, in the case of wind. When twenty-five degrees prevail, but the wind keeps the newspapers from flying off the table or trickling sand over the floor, staying outside is quickly uncomfortable. The best solution for this is one windshield who does not even let the wind into the garden. But the opportunities to protect yourself from wind are broad: wooden walls, green hedgesor rather just a camping wall?

Windbreak made of wood

Standard variants of the wooden windshield can be purchased in every hardware store. On windshield is efficient at a height of 1.80 meters to 2 meters. If the outward appearance of his garden is important, here are many options for the design: fir or spruce wood are the classic, the offer reaches to more unusual styles such as bamboo or reed. In the selection is important that no completely sealed windshield elements are placed in the garden: How can arise on the back eddies, which can be as disturbing as the actual wind. Small openings should be present so that the draft can pass through – so the force of the wind can be stopped up to 60 percent.

When choosing the anchorages of the posts in the ground are: a windshield made of wood must be able to withstand strong thunderstorms. The posts should be set in rectangular concrete foundations. At best, the foundations have a width and length of at least 25 centimeters and project 60 centimeters into the earth, If possible, a post should be attached directly to the house wall to ensure stability. By the way: Who not only bare wood, but also a bit green on his windshield may wish to resort to variants over which ivy or honeysuckle grows.

Windbreak through walls

A wall as windshield to build is a decision that should be well considered: they have a massive effect, make sense only from a height of 1.80 meters and thus dominate the impression of the garden. That’s why they should be color and structurally coordinated with the rest of the house. When building a wall, it is most pleasing to the eye when limited to a right-angled arrangement. Since the walls are airtight as wind protection, they act similar to the windbreak made of closed wood: On the other hand, strong air swirls, because the wind is not braked but broken.

Alternatively, a freestanding wall can be built in the garden, but be careful: it directs the wind upwards, which also creates turbulence on the back. Only at a certain distance from the wall is the wind no longer noticeable.

Hedges as a windbreak

Hedges are a simpler solution than building a wall and are usually efficient: as they, like an air-permeable wooden windshield, only slow down the wind and do not break, the wind is gently stopped. In addition, they have an uneven surface in which the wind catches. When selecting the plants should be considered, which claims the windbreak should do: Who lives on the coast should grow hawthorn or field maple hedges, as these also withstand stronger wind effects. Tree of life and yew are also robust, while hornbeam and beech are somewhat more permeable, but beautiful to look at.

Who decides on a hedge, also does his garden something good: Directly behind the hedges blowing a light breeze, which promotes the pollen and thus the pollination of flowers in the garden. In addition, it dries the petals behind the hedge and thus protects against fungal attack and other harmful diseases. However, regular care and pruning of the hedge is required: height and permeability determine how intense the windbreak is.

Conclusion

While hedges are the simplest and perhaps most attractive variant for wind protection, they make the biggest work in retrospect. To be a permeable wooden fenceTo build one must take some time – in the selection as in construction – and above all, make sure that it is stable. The creation of a wall should be well thought out and also fit creatively into the garden picture. The choice of the type of windscreen is in the end also a matter of personal taste.

Who wants to do a little work and anyway only spends a few summer weekends in the garden, who can also fall back on a conventional windscreen shelter: Casa Pura offers a good, erectable wind protection from 35 euros, larger models are available from Outwell from 60 euros. That this windbreak, however, withstand no summer storm, should be self-evident.
