Windbreak & Landscape / Permaculture specialist needed
Howdy. Two things:
1) Just purchased a large lot in the Hayward Hills of the Bay Area. Would like to have paid visits by specialists to help me create a Master Plan. Please email me if interested.
2) We're about 400 feet up. The wind whips and moans around our house all afternoon because there's a perfect narrow wind tunnel from the Golden Gate directly to our bedroom's corner. It's exacerbated by the neighbor's yard being 4 feet lower than us, creating a suction-vortex that increases air speed.
We need a hedge.
The breeze is lovely when it's hot, so we don't want a solid-growing hedge like English Laurel (and that's way too much pruning). Would Silverberry (for the Nitrogen) fronted by a pretty Rose of Sharon work, do you think?
If you have a better idea, please do suggest! Thanks muchly.
