There are plenty of additional species you could enrich that mix with, 
especially from the Mediterranean region if you didn't need to be too purist 
about natives etc. I'd encourage adding complexity even amongst the natives, 
as the shelter fence will definitely help using 50% density max' and the 
shelter effect as the toughest ones start to establish. You could consider 
Cytissus scoparius, Willows, Rosa rugosa, Oak, Bay etc. Ensure you have posts 
at frequent intervals so that the fence stays upright and neat and tidy, as 
it might attract wind-blown debris and sand that'll increase its wind 
loading. Also consider staining the posts so that they become a more positive 
contribution to the 'design'.

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

 

Jonathan
