Protection For Landscaping Trees in A Landscape Garden

May 24, 2008
One of the factors in ensuring that your garden plants, shrubs and trees grow well in your garden is that you ensure that wind damage is vastly reduced. Trees in Landscape Gardening can be heavily damaged by biting winds in many ways. One of the most effective ways in which to minimize wind damage is by utilizing Tree Shelters and Other Protection.

Tree Shelters and Other Protection can drastically reduce damage to fresh buds, leaves and shoots by creating a full or partial barrier to the wind. Prevailing winds rock the trees forwards and backwards creating damage to the roots especially the fibrous roots, this, and the fact that winds can also increase osmosis, means that trees easily become seriously dehydrated. Tree Shelters and Windbreak Netting are really cheap items of garden equipment so why cut corners? In the end it will more than likely work out more costly in the long run if you do not use them.

Sheltering garden trees and shrubs in really exposed areas can be very difficult and you will, more than likely, decide that it would be best to use both windbreak netting and tree shelters together. By following this advice you will discover that you have manufactured something rather the same as a controlled environment, these wonderful gadgets also help in stabilizing the surrounding air temperature by acting as insulation ( because most types have twin walls). Also, because they are made from an amazingly strong and long lasting type of clear or opaque polyethylene the resulting tree shelters are considerably lighter than if an alternative substance was used. They are really easy to flat pack resulting in transportation which is easy and cheap, even heavy weight designs remain light weight.

If you reside in a seaside location you will discover that tree shelters are also an extremely effective solution for the problem of damage caused by salt. Protecting against damage caused by salt is, most probably the only way to make sure that some species of tree survive in seaside locations. Windbreak netting is also a cool, easy way to increase protection against salt damage. Windbreak netting is also good for reducing sunlight in sunny positions as it restricts sunlight by 40 to 50%.

Tree Shelters and Other Protection are also advisable if you reside in a location where animals are a problem. Tree shelters can stop any damage caused by browsing creatures such as dear, rabbits etc. The spiral types have been designed for this reason and are most probably the most logical. Windbreak netting is not likely to stop rabbits because it is usually made from a mesh of polyethylene but it will most probnably stop other animals.
