This is part 2 of a slideshow i delivered at the mountain homesteading festival concerning the zones closest to the house. It goes over information about landscaping itself and the integration of food plants and the support species to make it a holistic permaculture design. It also addresses soil and water issues. Part 2 focuses much more on plant selection and their arrangement for a good design. It also addresses soil fertility and use of microclimate.
