Your backyard can affect your lifestyle and help you express your own style. If you want beautiful lush trees and greenery with your supply of fruits, nuts, and berries, then an orchard is a perfect choice.

Check out this short guide on setting up an orchard. Pretty soon, you might enjoy a good harvest.
Creating your Orchard
You can make your own rules when creating the orchard of your dreams.

That extra work lies in the fruiting and harvesting stages.
Your orchard’s initial setup and layout can benefit from small land clearing techniques. Forest and land management firms can help you with the landscape layout to prepare for planting and placements of your choice of fruit trees and berry shrubs. Their expertise and experience can help create a—literally—more fruitful orchard.
Whether your property is a small to medium-sized plot around five to ten acres or a vast piece of land of fifty acres and more, you can plant or install a variety of trees and plants for biodiversity. You have the choice of starting from scratch and building your orchard over time or buying fruit trees and other plants and strategically placing them in your orchard.
