During the visioning process our goal is to co-create a design that evolves naturally out of the relationship between the site and its inhabitants.
We begin with an assessment and evaluation of the the characteristics of the property such as the location, sun, wind, soil composition and quality, elevations, microclimates, views, among many others. We then explore your goals for the space, what types of foods you enjoy, how much time you want to spend in the garden and other relevant factors.
It is recommended that you have a current survery available for us in PDF and hard copy during the consultation to facilitate the design process. The intial consultation varies between $250 to $1,000 depending on the size and scope of the project.
From here we design a landscape that is high performing, low maintenance, diverse and beautiful. One that fulfills the fullest ecological potential of that space and exceeds your expressed goals and needs.
For community groups, neighborhood associations or corporate campuses or intentional communities, we are also adept at leading collective visioning and design workshops (often referred to as charettes) that are often employed in community-based projects to capture the collective goals and wisdom in to designs of productive landscapes.
For farms and intentional communities, we offer regenerative enterprise design (also known as Financial Permaculture) where we generate models for enterprises that are economically and ecologically sustainable for the long-term goal of the project.
