Mum and Dad's Fruit Forrest

Chopped down some hedges along the side of my parent's battle-axe driveway to grow a fruit forrest. This will hopefully be a low maintenance, high yielding, companion based garden with rich diversity. I created two small swales in contour with the slope and buried logs from the felled hedge in one of them. the other is open without mulch. I also created a hugulculture with the rest of the logs that runs downhill, the length of the space. There is a lot more room to expand, so this is just the first phase in a long term, gradual project.
