Good exposure

Open ground gets the full benefit of any rainfall, so that you are less likely to have to water the plants yourself. However, an open site can leave your crops at the mercy of the weather, particularly damage from strong winds.

In exposed gardens, you should put up windbreaks to reduce the force of gusts as much far as possible. Don’t build a solid wall, because air pressure creates turbulence on the leeward side of the barrier that can be worse than the unimpeded wind. Choose a permeable barrier, such as a fence or a hedge, that will break the force of the wind without creating unpredictable eddies. Also watch out for gaps between buildings and walls that could funnel wind.
