Are these gardens or cellular organisms?
What are the strengths of inter-spatial design, patch dynamics, and true diversity? Strength, Scalable Benefits, Predator Stress, Partitioned Resources. Monocultures and homogeneous structures are subject to violent collapse. Resources are compromised and stress is passed like dominoes with all components subject to the same deficiencies.
True diversity has gaps that change the niche in species, ecological functions, and needs. It is dynamic and allows for components to expand, contract, and change places. The garden should be an organism in structure ans function. You will be assured of a yield as plant respond to change.
