We don't have a seaside location, but our home sits high on a windy hill. Sometimes we need a wind break, but other times we really need the wind (Texas summers!) We also love our view so we do not want to block it, at least not permanently. I love the cascade coil drapery material above and that could be a solution but is most likely way over our budget. We are still seeking ideas for screening that looks nice, allows the view, and is not so bulky that it can be folded, or removed and easily stored away. We have entertained using vertical louvered panels that could be opened and closed as needed and, if we minimize the number of louvers, less view would be blocked. The glass panels are beautiful but we get some crazy hail storms here so there's no way those would work. Also, with the hot sun shining through the glass in our dry summers, I would be concerned about the reflection starting a grass fire!

@annejacobs11 Yes, that is an excellent point! Birds will frequently fly into large glass windows and panels. A slight tint or color to the glass will help. An etching or pattern on the glass is also a way to signal the presence of the panel to birds. Thank you for that comment.
