Hey there Michelle, thanks for your reply!
I woul love to start designing it but its hard to do if i dont make a decision on the land works in gonna do, im still undecided, thats why i asked for help here.
Should i try and level out 3 slopes in the hillside?
Should i make 3-4 swales, one before each planting "region"? I still dont know which one would work best.
Thank you too Mark for your reply!
You are exactly right, you have a good eye, the property is located in northen Transilvania(Romania) near Cluj-Napoca city.
Thanks for identifing the trees/shrubs, im pretty set on keeping them there, i feel like i would take the soul away by replacing them with something els.
Berries, the place was full of them last autumn when i first got here.
I dont think ill be able to use the lake water, my property stops 15 meters to the shore, but im planning on digging a well and making a small pond later on.
Some more information on the layout, ita about 130 meters long and 17 meters wide, the short side beeing paralel to the lake.
Im really glad about all the information i got till now, thanks again!
