If a farmer wants to dissuade tourists/photo takers all they need to do is not weed. Saw many fields that had beautiful lavender and good photo compositions but they were unkept looking and therefore not as picture worthy.

The fact they keep their fields so perfectly manicured tells me they want to show them off and not grown just for the crop.

The lavender farmers I've spoken with have said to me that the 'weeding' is a necessary part for them to make their harvesting successful, as all the weeds in the lavender when they harvest is a disaster for them. There must be another process or maybe a use for the lavender for farms that don't weed prior to harvest?
