I have seen Chestnut palling used and can let you have details of a 
manufacturer.
When I managed an army camp that had a coastal boundary, Sea couch grass did 
well holding soil together.
Prunus spinosa also survived.

Subject: Establishing shrubs on site with heavy coastal exposure

Morning all, 

 

A client of mine would like to establish a belt of coastal shrubs on sandy 
loam directly adjacent to a very exposed stretch of south-west facing, low 
lying coast in Hampshire and will take a good battering from salt laden wind. 
The belt is within a few metres of the high tide line. Suggested
species: Common Gorse, Heather, Sea Buckthorn, Blackthorn and Guelder Rose. 

 

Whilst the species are all deemed relatively tolerant of this exposure, I am 
wondering if the installation of a windbreak netting / mesh on the seaward 
side for the first couple of years would benefit the establishment of the 
young transplants? Any thoughts or tips from anyone with similar experience 
would be welcome. 

 

ATB
