This retired couple living in Hillsboro, Oregon, had what looked like a hodgepodge of attempts at Permaculture. Frustrated without a plan, they asked me to make sense of the parts they wanted to keep, with a DIY Permaculture Design Package. They had already lost all of their pond fish from erosion, and so I got to work.
Results included a unified and simplified space with more diverse plant communities that would support each other, much-needed pond bank stabilization and regrading, and clarified and expanded walkways and staging areas connecting the green house, chickens, and two sheds. This couple now has a comfortable and stable seating area to enjoy the water and a private meditation space, too. It made me happy to help them enjoy their forever home in style!
