A new demonstration windbreak has been added to Houston Gardens

The demonstration windbreak is intended to help educate people of all ages on the importance of windbreaks and how they are an important tool to implement conservation on pieces of land big or small. Windbreaks help protect houses, cropland, livestock and roadways. They are used to provide protection from the elements but mainly snow and wind.

Stop by Houston Garden’s to see the beautiful property as well as look at the new windbreak.

Native Plum, Rocky Mountain Juniper and Austrian Pine are the species that were used for the windbreak.
