I'm looking for a wind break solution for my balcony. It's a rented property (British/EU) and I am not allowed to drill into external wall. It is a top-floor, south-facing balcony and is pretty much fully exposed. On a gusty day wind can be 30+mph and rose is mostly between S-W. I'd like to try and grow food in containers so I need something that doesn't cut through too much light into the balcony and flat.
Awnings - Unfortunately I can't drill into the wall so this does not seem an option.
Trellis - Maybe on both sides, or on both corners? The balcony is not big, I wonder how tall that can be so they don't tip over in high winds.
Windscreen - I personally am not a fan of plasticky screens. Maybe bamboo could be an option, I'd like to let the light fall into the balcony as much as possible. If I choose bamboo ones it'll be quite sparse. Will it still be effective in breaking the wind?
Which one would you recommend, trellis or windscreen? If with trellis, any climbing plants (other than ivy) I can consider? Do I have any other options?
Thanks in advance!
