Edible fence

Our edible fence is a wall of branches with thorny fruits growing in and over it. The branches are cuttings from pruning (we don't like to burn this beautiful material) that build up the wall during winter time. In spring, berry bushes like blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries and Japanese wineberries grow over the branches wall.

On the south side of the wall we have the little orchard, on the north & east side of the wall is a more wild piece of terrain, with waving grasses and wild flowers, deer and swines.

Micro climate

On some spots in the living fence (orchard side), we created south facing areas as a small micro climate zone.
In that zones we grow peach trees, nectarines and figs.
