Integrating the data, the vision, and the art. Polyculture Design


I hope you can see what I see.
I need something for relative scale.
A fence or bench might be good for that.

I did this for Paula Westmoreland, Nick Jordan, and the Friends School Plant Sale.

I think this is an effective plan view. I agree an object to provide scale would be useful. I suggest a person.
I think a section view would also be very informative. Not only the relative heights of the plants could be communicated but also the expected spatial relationships of the root systems. Information about preferred soil conditions could also be included.

Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
