New home - clean slate - backyard layout advice please
We just built a new home on a 3/4 acre lot and have several goals for our yard. Lately, we are most concerned with establishing the layout of the basic, more functional aspects of the backyard. I'm not sure where exactly to post my question, so please direct me to a more appropriate place, if necessary.
Current goals for backyard:
-Apple trees (not sure of number - we have 6 kids)
-Raspberries (+blueberries if we can make it work)
-Wind barriers?? Other bordering trees/shrubs?
Things to know about our lot:
-farm land behind us (zoned for neighborhood development in the future)
-it is very windy
-Home (with walkout basement) is oriented due South.
-people don't have fences in our neighborhood
-possible sport court SE of house in future
Looking for advice on placement of these trees/plants/garden plot.
