Border plants in desert like conditions

Hello, I am new to GW. Having just bought a large plot in a hot, dry and windy location (almost like a desert), but by the sea, I am seeking advice on a cost effective option to border my land and ideally prevent having to build a wall. Can you recommend a kind of tree or hedge that could survive such conditions all year round, be around 2-2.5m tall and thick enough to prevent people pushing through them? I thank you in advace for any support you can provide. Alex (Mui Ne, Viet Nam)

    tsk Chrissie, don't be greedy.

    I'm happy to take on the challenge.

  • I certainly appreciate the support. I you book early it's possible for as little as GBP 400 return... In response to you chrissieB, they mostly build breeze block walls (if they have the money) or nothing if they don't. I am leaving for the UK tomorrow so will visit some garden centres and see what they suggest. I do appreciate they may not be geared up for these kinds of conditions though.

    I'm wondering about Sea buckthorn?  Apparently it's grown a lot in various parts of Asia, including China so may be available and ok for the climate.

    What do folks think?
