About Eco-Logic

Highly Sought Out Architectural Landscape Design

It was really our clients who identified our niche in the landscape design industry.  Since 2004, people from New Mexico to Florida reached out over and over after their online research led them to us.  All we were doing is writing a blog. People were looking at companies on the Internet but hadn't found anyone doing what we do:  architectural landscape design with an ecological focus.  When Eco-LogicSM was born, we knew we wanted to specialize in the professional combination of permaculture design and landscape architecture.  This is why, folks tell us, we have been sought out for this long up and down the West Coast.

In case you are wondering, here's a little about what we do:

Permaculture is ecologically-focused or regenerative landscape design.  With permaculture, you can hang your hammock, relax, and take in the delicious scents as you watch your gorgeous landscape manage its own growth towards maturity.

Permaculture accomplishes these things:

  • Builds upon a language of local materials
  • Incorporates on-site resources
  • Stacks functions throughout the landscape
  • Cures problems with efficiency and elegance
  • Captures & utilizes natural resources
  • Provides multiple solutions via each design element
  • Solves more than one problem at once
  • Builds soil life, plant health, biodiversity, and resilient beauty
  • Frees up owner’s time spent on maintenance

This type of ecologically-focused design also offers a bounty of perennial delights for kitchen and beneficial wildlife. From low-maintenance plants to rainwater re-use, we incorporate architectural landscape design style and aesthetics with the deep wisdom of Nature to maximize the highest level of function within a beautifully clean overall look.

Architectural Landscape Design Process

Eco-LogicSM works with Nature's time-tested ways, rather than seeking to overcome them.  This results in landscapes that offer resilient functional beauty for present and future generations while engaging Nature as a cooperative force.  Here is how we turn problems into elegant solutions:
  1. Site Analysis is a key part of all design packages.Submitting a Design Questionnaire is the best way to get started on your project.  You can also schedule a FREE 15 Minute Phone Consultation and a designer will complete a design questionnaire with you.  These steps give both you and your designer a better idea of fit and answers any questions you might have.
  2. If we want to work together, the next step is to schedule your site visit, where your designer or site specialist meets you on-site and walks your property with you.  This is when we perform a site analysis and prepare a base map and takes 1-1.5 hours.  We also prepare an estimate during the site visit, based on your project timeline and scope.  You pay a Deposit of one-third the project total, and then your designer or site specialist takes measurements and photos, allowing you to get on with your day.
  3. Midway through the design phase of a Master Plan project, your designer will schedule a Mid-Point Meeting with you.  This is when you will be able to see how the issues you described in your questionnaire and discussed during your site visit are being expertly translated into solutions unique to your property.  This working meeting allows you to make changes to the design before it is finalized.  You pay the second third of the project total at this time.
  4. Next, your designer will schedule your Final Design Presentation meeting, where your designer leads you through your plan just as if you were walking through your new landscape.  You pay the final third of the project total at this point.
  5. Once a large-scale PDF has been delivered, your Project Manager schedules construction management for the installation of your project.
We have worked successfully with all types of clients and accept projects ranging in scope from a suburban side yard to large rural acreages. If you are curious about how architectural landscape design infused with permaculture (or kept simply ornamental) can enhance your life and raise your property value, submit your questionnaire or schedule your free consultation.
