How can plantings be used for winter wind protection?

Adding winter wind protection

Your house may be exposed to winter winds and require protection. During your first winter, mark the direction of the prevailing winter winds. Keep in mind a windbreak must be at least 1 1/2 times its height away from the object to be protected. Make a note of areas where snow drifts onto walks and drives. A planting of shrubs may be able to act as a living snow fence.
