    have you ever thought of putting up some fencing? and put a garden in front of it? it would not totally stop the winds, but would cut down on them. it may mean you have to re think where you put flowers. it would be helpful to know the location of your gardens in your yard.... there are many plants that can with stand heavy winds... suggest you go to a gardening place and explain your problem.they could prob help you out. good luck.

    I live on oregon coast, and it blows here year round. Flowering ground covers and bulb flowers do well, , violets, gerber daisies. Flowering scrubs like rhododendrons, fuschia, hydrangea, azaelies, peonies.

    Try choosing mostly low growing flowers. If you start seeds, look in different catalogs for annual flowers that do not get very tall.

    I would place the plants sheltered by a larger shrub, or on a certain side of the house, that doesn't get much winds. If there is one. At our other home, we had a east side that rarely got high winds. For the winds came from the north and west. So, do watch your winds, and the area. Do go to, and they will let you know, or show you, the areas that strong winds will be this yr. Best wishes, do excuse the note above, of such rudeness, ok? Best wishes, J.
