Gardening

Recommended Posts

As I already mentioned before, I do love to garden and since I am retired, I always eat from my own garden. Is that something you will allow in your subdivision? I think a community garden and aquaponics are amazing, and I do love to volunteer my time for that, but there is nothing as awesome as going outside your backyard door and getting the fresh herbs and veggies for your dinner salad.

I was just on my lot in late September, walking the grounds with the project developers.  We walked through the plans my wife and I have in mind for the land, and altered them with their suggestions.  We are looking to make as much of the land as productive as possible.  We picked out over 50 fruit and nut trees, though we soon realized that we will need more than that.  Then we marked off about a quarter acre or so for a small organic vineyard.  Finally, we walked off about a 500 square foot plot for an initial garden for veggies and annual fruits.  We plan on doing a lot of canning for the winter months, so a lot of the garden will probably go towards that effort.

So, short answer - you can do what you want.  It's your land.  Hopefully there will be some general neighborhood guidelines that discourage eye sores like junk cars on the land, but other than that, it's dealers choice.  I looked at another property in the O'Higgins region where the land was micromanaged by the neighborhood and very restrictive.  It was an enormous turn off.  I wouldn't have made my purchase if I was being told what I can and can't do with it in terms of what I could plant.

Hope that helps...

Hello Karen,
YES! In fact, we do encourage planting trees, vineyards, and gardens. We do not want to micromanage your property as some other developments might do, but we do want every owner to plant trees or vineyards. After all, this is a sustainable community.

    • No, I have not had any problems from the Chilean side of the import. The delay is because of the lock downs in the countries we order from. Many can not come out to work, and many are understaffed..... The whole chain is broken, and everyone needs more time to finish a task.
    • Is the reason for the delay because Chile is now strict with import?
    • You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss. Did it affect the project? Definitely! Many containers that we were supposed to get from China and Europe have been delayed a lot. Some have already arrived, but some are still not here.
    • So it seems that the coronavirus did not affect you guys much. Did it change or affect the project?
    • No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.
