How close to a Lang hive can I place a new top bar hive?

...as close to or as far away as you like. A hive is a hive.......
The things to worry about are how you will work the hive and how you will mow around the hives. Otherwise it really doesn't matter.

I agree with everything said before. One thing: make sure your hive is "dead level". Actually use a bubble level on it (there's an iphone app if you don't own one). It should be level side to side, and also level front to back. You'll appreciate this later when your bees build absolutely straight comb.

Amen to that! Love my KTBH’s and they love me for being mindful of their need to be “ dead level”.
