WindbreaksPlanting a windbreak is a great way to save on your utility bills--and also makes spending time in your yard so much more enjoyable. Evergreen trees and shrubs with dense foliage are valued for their ability to redirect the wind, but they can also do so much more, like provide year-round color and privacy screening. Our Ready, Set, Hedge!™ shrubs will help you establish a windbreak faster. That's because they establish themselves faster than root-bound, potted shrubs you often find in retail stores. Grown in the sandy, nutrient-rich soils, of Holland, Michigan, they have large fibrous root systems and many fine root hairs. So you'll have a fast-growing, living windbreak faster.
