A berry bramble snake...

I don't like things in rows. I'm not into straight lines or sharp corners much. It's just my preference. So, I have this new yard/canvas to work with and I have some berries to plant. They cme from my tiny house garden where I had them planted in a curve around my curved chicken yard....of course...never thought of that part until now. lol. Anyhow, I absolutely do not want them to be in a straight line messin' with the aesthetics of our yard. My vision is to do a sort of snaking line down the side of the yard. I realize it will need to have a wide enough radius in the curves to make the curve obvious and it will need to be kept in check (it's in an urban setting, so we can't let it get too widespread anyhow. It will be 6ft away from our neighbros property line). The back of the snake will be taller and will taper to the front with blackberries in back and raspberries in front. We will be using the evergreen branched trunks for the t posts and then run wire to support the canes.

Thoughts? Poke holes in my design. Think of things I haven't thought of for me.
If you have a bad day in October, have a slice of banana cream pie. And this tiny ad:
