Orchard design service

Cost-effective professional advice in designing a new orchard

If you are planning a new orchard of more than 20 trees or so, you will probably find it useful to take professional advice. A good layout will make the best use of the land you have available and balance the various and often conflicting elements that are involved in orchard design.

We will produce a detailed Report for you, which will specifically tackle the aspects of orchard design that are often difficult to decide on - the mature size of the trees, the best rootstocks to use, spacing between the trees, layout in relation to site gradients, pollination and harvest, choice of varieties and prediction of yields. The Report will be prepared in consultation with you and will also cover any specific topics you require.
