Permaculture Gardens and Landscapes

"From City to Country"

  • Orchards

  • Biodynamic

  • Gardens

  • Agroforestry

  • Native Pollinator

  • Meadows and Landscapes

- Design, build and maintain diversified, beautiful, edible and native landscapes for our clients using permaculture design principles.  


- We fully utilize southern exposure for rare and delicate fruits and cooler areas for rare woodland medicinals and other appropriate plantings. We will disperse detrimental energies like wind and sun and increase privacy and the diversity of use by the strategic placement of the plantings we create on-site.

Permaculture Water Systems Design and Installation

Commercial and Residential

We solve water issues with finesse, create spring fed ponds, put in property wide path networks with cabins and sitting areas, revitalize water features, install rain gardens for native pollinators and medicinal herbs.

Throughout our designs we apply the permaculture principle; to diversify the sources that provide your essentials. Primarily water and energy, by banking them in natural on site reserves. We back up all your water supplies with, ponds, springs and rain fed water tanks, all placed for the best gravity pressure as stand alone, off grid water systems. We strategically site ponds and buildings for maximum irrigation/gardening opportunities. We enhance overall infiltration to aquifers and wells with integrated earthworks and infrastructures. 

Permaculture Whole Site Design

We create comprehensive Permaculture designs tailor suited to your dreams and visions for your life and the ecological communities that you live with. To begin the process send me your exact address and your Permaculture wishlist for the property, which should include all the elements you desire for me to incorporate into the design.

Natural Building Healthy Homes

Anchor 3

We combine our experience in natural building and landscape construction to create healthy homes for healthy people. We will site buildings to be well located in regards to water drainage around them and maximize the natural benefits of being oriented to the sun for winter homes and towards the north for passive cooling and root cellars.
