Answer: Shrubs make great wind blocks. Try to choose plants that have small leathery leaves that will not be tattered or desiccated by winds. You will also have better luck with fairly low-growing plants. Here a few suggestions: Myrica pensylvanica, bayberry, Pieris floribunda, Japanese andromeda, Potentilla cinquefoil, Prunus maritima, fragrant sumac, Rosa rugosa, buffalo berry, Vaccinium sp.- blueberry, and Leucothoe. Best wishes with your landscape!
