Every element of design serves a purpose and performs particular functions. When you know the functions of particular plants and animals, putting together becomes much easier. Weeds become friends rather than enemies, and you develop a deep, comprehensive understanding of your garden and why it works the way it does. Not to mention, functional design saves energy and space. This is a huge benefit to every garden, whether urban, suburban, or rural farm.
