Plan Description

Your backyard can be both productive and beautiful if you create an edible landscape by planting attractive fruit-bearing trees and shrubs according to recognized landscape design principles. The designer arranged the fruit trees and shrubs in clusters and groups to create a lovely landscape that will fool anyone into thinking the garden was designed for its beauty alone. The delicious harvest is an added bonus. Evergreen groundcovers and swaths of summer-flowering perennials planted beneath the curving line of apple trees turn this into an ornamental planting, while providing easy access for both maintenance and harvest. The curving border defines the lawn and yard, creating a pleasing shape, yet proves to be a practical plan for fruit growing. The apple varieties selected are disease resistant, reducing the need for pest-control measures. Included are several types that will cross-pollinate and ripen their fruit at different times. The designer uses semi-dwarf trees because they bear earlier, are easier to harvest, and need less care than standard-sized trees. Also featured are a nut tree to shade the deck, an island bed planted with a ground cover of strawberries and a dwarf fruit tree, and berry plants flanking the apple trees. Backyard gardeners will appreciate the handsome storage shed, where tools can be conveniently kept. Concealed behind several lengths of fencing, the compost piles are also right at hand for recycling garden and kitchen refuse into a valuable soil amendment. Your friends will be surprised and delighted when you harvest baskets of delicious apples, berries and nuts from this beautiful yard in summer and fall. The simple curved lawn and angular deck set off the surrounding orchard of fruiting trees and shrubs. @season:Shown in Summer Damon Scott
