However, if you live in an extreme climate you might need to help them stay warm by providing insulation or windbreaks
You must strike a balance: A windbreak
is only effective if the plants are spaced tightly, but if planted too close together, they may not grow properly to be effective at blocking wind.
So we crossed a CRP field of grass and turned into the breeze blowing along another mile-long windbreak
heights varied at the two fields, equal distances from the windbreak
resulted in different H values.
Called gom-so'a (Kiowa) or hi'oo weh-tu-rdu-ai (Comanche) the walls of the windbreak
or barricade were made of bloodweed.
The researchers conclude that trees offer chickens shade, protection from predatory crows and a windbreak
First of all, though, consider a sturdy windbreak
if you haven't already got one.
This book takes the reader through the whole process of developing a vineyard from scratch, from how to get your rootlings of vines to which trees to use as a windbreak
, and Barrow even includes a breakdown of costs.
Or block the wind: a hedge or a windbreak
of closely spaced trees planted on the windward side can create a sheltered area extending 10 to 20 times its height (a 10-foot-tall hedge will shelter 100 to 200 feet of ground behind it).
It's a rude reminder that I have passed the protection of my windbreak
The objectives of this study were to determine water conservation and forage production associated with a tall wheat-grass windbreak
system seeded to alfalfa, and to assess the sustainability of any benefits from the system.
The primary objective," said Bill Bauer, President and CEO of WinDBreak
Cable, of Gering, NE, "was to develop a low cost set top box (LCST) that would allow systems to efficiently migrate from analog to digital transmission.
