Square Foot Garden + Forest Garden?

12 years ago

Has anyone here tried combining a Forest Garden with Square Foot Gardening techniques?

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I would assume fruit trees (particularly semi-dwarf and dwarf) would be able to be placed in the center of a fairly large raised-bed (perhaps a 10x10 bed). Shrubs could be grown around the trunk, and then ground-cover and other low plants around the perimeter.

The idea of containing the plants within raised-beds is appealing, as it should help keep the food sources more organized and perhaps lessen the maintenance.
