I've got a customer that has a house situated on a golf course. There is a 180' long berm, 3' wide for a plant bed that follows the lines of the backyard facing the golf course. Due to a freak in design of the subdivision there is almost a constant wind between 20 mph to 50 mph all of the time. (yes, it has been mesaured and documented over a eight week time frame.) I have talked to the developer and there is nothing that he can do simply by the way the development is done. The customer wants all sorts of flowers and shrubs in back that will not impede the view of the golf course. Otherwords the plants can not exceed 28" to 32" tall. So far the winds have killed 5 windmill palms, a dozen roses and Oleanders. I am now thinking Daylillies the entire stretch. Ideas? Oh yea, I even had the local extension from Clemson University look at this and they tossed their hands up.
