raspberry planting spacing why so big?

ive got a couple of rows of raspberries(newly planted) about 5 foot between rows as the experts/websites recommend.

Any idea why there needs to be such a big gap?

Aware of suckers but I will take these out anyway.

Conscious it leaves a lot of dead space that I could be using for something else.

Any help gratefully received
