Garden design 


I’ve been putting off turning this plot into a productive garden area.  It’s a big space and I’ve had numerous ideas for different layouts.  I was keen to get some input from people but it hasn’t happened.  I just need to bite the bullet and do it.  

I’d like to incorporate fruit trees along the left side (eastern side) and plant the rest with crops in traditional ploughed rows similar to this but left to right to capture water better. 

It’s a great spot for full sun crops and has a fairly gentle slope which would provide good runoff drainage. 

I’ll cover the plot with black plastic this week so the grass and weeds die off.   Black plastic also generates a lot of heat underneath and basically cooks everything so it won’t regrow.  If the outside temperature is 30 degrees c., then the underside has to be getting over 60.
