Permaculture: Polyculture: "Nature's design is quite amazing and perfectly imperfect. It creates life cycling systems with all sorts of creatures, plants, layers and patterns. The pattern we see in most gardens are tidy neat rows or crops grown in large blocks. Polyculture instead tries to imitate nature. The goal is to create many layers in height, no uniformity with the distances between plants, and many different varieties existing together in one place."
