Protect my orange buds from wind

I have 2 orange trees that are blocked by wind with my garage on the south side. During the spring the Arizona winds are very strong and knock off the orange buds that have emerged after the blossoms fall off. Has anyone ever made a wind barrier out of burlap and if so did it work?

RE: Protect my orange buds from wind

I believe that burlap would work but you will need a strong support structure to hold it. I am wondering if the buds are knocked off by the trees hitting the garage. when the wind hits. If that is so you might consider espalier growing. That would eliminate that problem, if I am reading your tree is nestled in front of the south of the garage. If the trees buds are broken by the shear force of the wind, you will need more that burlap. Good luck.
