Low-Maintenance Landscaping

Permaculture allow homeowners to drastically reduce their water and maintenance bills by setting up resilient self-maintaining ecosystems on a site.  From a suburban side yard to a large rural acreage, your landscape can be restored to this state with the right knowledge and strategy.

Plants that take care of each other, efficient and low-cost ways to hold water on-site and thereby reduce the effects of drought, balancing out of pest problems without the use of toxic chemicals, and much more.

Edible Habitats

Why not be able to eat from your yard?  Plucking a fresh, juicy peach off your front porch is one of life’s experiences that make it worth living.

Grocery store produce just isn’t the same, ripened in crates on long truck rides across the country, it just doesn’t taste the same and has lost or never been given the time in the sun to develop the nutrients it should offer you.

Your landscape is an opportunity.  To expand your living space and lifestyle for a healthier, more refreshing experience.  You could be entertaining guests while also reaping a harvest, even in the middle of a city.

And with permaculture applied to landscape architecture, it doesn’t have to cost much.  In fact, you could significantly lower your water and maintenance bills!  Find out more by scheduling a FREE Strategic Coaching session where we will provide you with a detailed strategy and estimate for doubling your landscape’s resilience in 90 days.

Decks + Patios

Outdoor living happens on the deck or in the patio.  Being able to step outside after a long day at the office is a refreshing way to end the day.

Entertaining guests can be a beautiful experience with the right lighting, plantings, space design, and special features.

Grill for family and friends, host a pool party, screen a movie for your neighbors.  The options expand with efficiently designed eco-friendly decks or patio spaces.

Driveway Conversion

The driveway was of course intended for allowing off-street parking in a garage or carport.  While in some neighborhoods this is either a good idea or required, often there is more than enough space for at least a partial conversion.  What does that mean for your property?

You can park in the driveway just up from the sidewalk and transform the rest of the driveway into a beautiful outdoor living space.  If you are interested in using your garage as a studio or ADU (accessory dwelling unit), you can connect your new patio or courtyard to it for an even richer multi-functional experience.  You can charge tenants more and sell your house for more someday.

Why waste your driveway just on your car?  Find out more by scheduling a FREE Strategic Coaching session where we will provide you with a detailed strategy for transforming your driveway into usable outdoor living space.

Pool, Sauna + Spa

Water is life.  As an amenity its presence in the landscape soothes us physically, mentally, and emotionally.  During hot weather there is nothing like dipping into the pool out back.  And in cold weather, sitting in a hot tub warms one to the bones.  On any type of day, sweating out impurities in a sauna helps with a range of ailments while calming the nervous system.

These benefits have long-term effects.  In day-to-day life, having even just one water amenity on-site opens up your options for entertaining guests as well as restoring yourself and providing recreational opportunities for your family.

Design of such systems optimizes your space while integrating features together in a cohesive whole.  Learn more by scheduling a FREE Strategic Coaching session where we will provide you with a detailed strategy for creating a resilient property including healing amenities involving water.

Water Features

The sound of water instantly calms the mind, and the energy patterns of flowing water revitalize a space.  Flowing water in a front yard brings prosperity and luck.

Koi offer additional movement and thus life, while mosquito fish prevent pests.  Did you know there are many water plants suited to water features as well?

Whether a fountain, meditation pool, or lit water rill, an elegantly designed water feature will add beauty and wonder to your landscape.  To learn more, get a FREE Strategy via our coaching program.

Arbors + Trellises

From focal point to backdrop, arbors and other fine garden structures define outdoor rooms.  An arbor, trellis, or pergola can draw the eyes of guests while providing structure for gorgeous fragrant flowering vines.  Their materials and craftsmanship compliment and extend the architecture of your home, and sitting in the dappled shade on a warm day is a refreshing experience.  We specialize in offering edible as well as fragrant flowering vines in a range of colors and leaf patterns.

One of our favorite projects was designing a pergola for a wedding.  When we chose two Kiwi vines, a male and a female, the beautiful tendrils of each plant found each other in the space between them.  It was a magical moment of embrace.  The bride couldn’t help but smile and remark about the perfection of those two plants.  She was so excited to be married, and the plants reaching for each other to entwine as we had intended them to do over her pergola helped her see how great the ceremony would look.
