Hello fellow permies.
I have an acre of land that is currently just lawn. I have decided to transform it into a fruit and nut tree orchard.

It will have a pond at the top with a run off into water catchment which will run into the green house. There is a squareish space of about 90x90 foot where the main orchard will be, the fruit and nut trees will be the centre of guilds the guilds will mostly comprise of edible perennials and fruit obviously each guild will also contain a number of n2 fixers, dynamic accumulators, pollinators etc.
Just wondering if anyone has any advice/ideas to help me in the development stage any suggestions welcomed.
Thanks in advance!

Congradulations on taking on this project!  You'll be rewarded forever! 

Can you tell us more what you climate zone is?  Where you are located?  What kind of soil do you have?


What kind of advice are you looking for?  The clearer your questions, the easier it is to respond.

Maybe draw a map of your plan (by hand if need be) and share it to give us a better understanding!
