Permaculture is a symbiotic relationship and way of thinking. Living in a healthier alignment with the Earth.

Why choose to hire a permaculture designer over a landscape service provider?

Permaculture techniques are innovated ways of creating environments that benefit the full system in the design. Thinking not only how one can beautify a space, but also how to make a space that enriches the Earth. Builds the health of the soil and attracts pollinating birds and insects. An environment that grows food and shares a common goal of supporting all connected with the space. 

Most landscaping services, advertise plants that have little to no benefit for human or animals. Plants that have been modified genetically to not produce pollen for insects to feed off of, or food for birds and animals to eat. These plants have often been treated heavily with poisons and unnatural fertilizers to maintain a presentable look. Often these landscaping plants may contain toxic weed sprays or use mono-cropped lawn care fertilizers and heavy chemicals. All of which are not healthy for the environment, animals or people.

 

A Permaculture Designer thoroughly takes account of all parts of the environment and site. Including the flows and current life cycles of the clients, animals and plants connected and disconnect to the environment and site. Thus creating a more harmonious and well-balanced place to live for highest benefit of all involved.
