REX 10 Week Online Farm Planning Program – Week 5 – PartA
“…Water is the principle planning medium. Water comes before roads and fences and everything. If you get the water right, you get the roads right and you plant the trees in the right place, and no-one does that…”
– P.A. Yeomans (Keyline® Plan Originator), 1979
A primary step in the Regrarians® approach to farm planning is to use Keyline Geographic Analysis (KG) to understanding the principal landscape elements. Once established these elements inform the placement of most of the design features that make up the Development layers of the Regrarians Platform.
Using the KG is at once liberating and powerful as the landscape ‘speaks to you’ (P.A. Yeomans), ‘telling’ you where to put different elements such as water, road, tree, building and fencing systems.
