Windbreak Netting

Windbreak netting is ideal for gardens in exposed locations that are often subjected to strong winds that can damage garden plants. By creating a windbreak you'll be reducing the wind speed, which will help to prevent damage to evergreen foliage, will reduce disturbance of shallow-rooted plants, broken fences, shattered greenhouse glass and the scattering of pot plants. If you live in a coastal area, a windbreak will also help to reduce damage caused by salt-laden winds.

Designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, our windbreak netting will protect plants and seed beds from wind, frost or strong sunlight. The windbreak netting is manufactured from high density, green polyethylene that is both UV stabilised and rot resistant. The netting offers good wind speed reduction, cutting wind speeds by up to 50%.

To create an effective windbreak batten the windbreak netting to wooden fence posts - battening ensures that the forces exerted onto the wind break is spread evenly ensuring the mesh doesn't tear. We recommend using straining wires - for example you could use the Gripple Wire - when installing windbreak netting as this will help to keep fences taut and will stop the net from sagging. Generally windbreak netting should be placed to face the prevailing winds (in the UK this is from the south-west), although you may position them to protect from the cold north and easterly winds.
