Good ecological design incorporates many different processes. A thorough look at the site through prolonged observation is invaluable to achieving a harmony between the natural system and the goals of the landowners.

Permaculture thought by many people to be a form of organic gardening is much more. Permaculture is a design tool as well as a system of ecological living striving to incorporate age old traditions and modern technology to create a permanent agriculture/culture.


Design considerations for a well thought out landscape design

The permaculture model gives us a good set of tools to work with to balance harmony, beauty and productivity on the site.
