What is Permaculture?
Permaculture Master Planning is our most popular service. We invite You to Imagine a Landscape that Takes Care of Itself.
Since 2004, we have professionally combined permaculture, one of the most effective regenerative design systems in the world, with landscape architecture. If you are interested in creating a self-sustaining landscape that brings down your water and maintenance costs to near-zero while also increasing your property value, schedule your Site Visit with us.
Permaculture is a super-effective form of regenerative landscape design. You can implement permaculture on any size of property. Measurable reductions in costs, maintenance, and time/work is a key benefit. But you'll also see increases in beneficial wildlife like butterflies and songbirds, more flowers, bigger and healthier fruit, and much healthier soil.
If you are wondering: what permaculture is, we'll show you as we work together. If you're like most people, your property can be transformed by Permaculture Master Planning. With this package, you'll get an in-depth walk-through of your plan, along with supplemental documentation like phasing recommendations, planting guides, little-known low-effort/high-impact techniques, a specific plants list, and much more.
With permaculture's ancient take on regenerative design, you can select from a variety of features, such as a pool, no-mow/no-water lawn, patio or any other feature. Ecology doesn't have to be messy.
We are experts at transforming site issues into multi-functional elements that serve your needs beautifully while re-establishing an intact ecology on your property. What are the benefits of permaculture design? Long-term resilience, an impressive increase in plant health and production, and less work and expense on your part, to name just a few. You can also expect to achieve near-zero waste, enhanced landscape beauty and function, pretty butterflies, hummingbirds, and dragonflies, less watering, weeding, and fertilizing, and more time to enjoy and delight in living are the goals and the results.

- driveway or access road
