Ok, so I've been planting a lot of trees on my property, and some fruit trees as well. I wanted it all to look a bit like a forest. But mother nature and farming does not go well together. Deer and moose and rabits spoiled quite a bit of my efforts, and although I was able to protect most of fruit trees, the expensive bleuberry plants suffers greatly each year. So I decided to make a fenced of orchard and now I can't sleep. So many things to go through.... What materials to choose, how to make it look good and eye pleasing (I don't like fences) and how to plant the trees and bushes, because so far they where all mixed in random order, but going a bit more PRO I think it would be a lot better to group them. Ahhh..... So my orchard will be 50x50 meters, of 150cm sheep mesh, I want each post to last a lifetime ( haha ), so each of it will have it's own foundation, a bit more work, but I have the post ready from some firewood, they have not been vacuum impregnated so digging them underground means they will last only 10 years. The most of the fruit trees are already there, but digging them up and replanting will be necesserity. And what to do with the bushes? The way to go is to "roundup" the weeds for a start, then cultivate the land, then "roundup" again and plant. But I want to be nature friendly, so another way to go is to lay some dark sheeting for a year and the weeds rot underneath... Ahh, so many things to think off and i like it So what's your way to go about orchars and any good media, books, articles?
