planting raspberries????

Hi all hope everyone is doing well?

I just wanted to know if raspberries and blackberries can be planted together? If so how far apart should raspberries be from blackberries? Thank you so much in advanced :). Here are the names of the plants
blackberries: Quachita ( hope I spelled that right :) ).
Raspberries: Nova

I believe they are better planted apart in separate designated beds.

Blackberries could overwhelm the raspberries, and their cultural requirements are slightly different.

Also due to needing specific pruning regimen depending on type of raspberries and type of blackberries, it would be easier on you if they were not intermingled.
