Property Consult

Sometimes known as a permaculture design, the consult helps maximize the potential of your existing backyard, vacant land site, homestead, or farm while maintaining a low environmental footprint.

We have also seen too many folks attempt failed replications of an otherwise great idea (our own lessons learned!), or may have overlooked one critical factor that inhibited their project from success. Permaculture considers how human habits and nature’s cycles can harmonize together to be functional, economical, and resilient.

In-person site assessment visits are recommended but not essential.

We outline a simple two-step process to help navigate your consult and coach your ideas to completion.

Step 1

mapping layers: contours, zones of use, access and circulation, sightlines

We recommend an initial property consult to make sure you start off on the right foot. Starts from $250 and adjusted based on your prior background knowledge and the extent of your plans. All you need to do is contact us (below), and we can discuss your ideas over the phone so we can best decide how to best help you out.

A permaculture summary report could include a review of:

  • available mapping
  • climate and topography
  • lifestyle considerations
  • socio-economic and legal considerations
  • overall placement
  • water systems
  • recommended edible plant species
  • soil preparation
  • planting
  • composting
  • other recommendations

Step 2

Each of these sections can be expanded upon to provide additional guidance on details such as: detailed planting plan, maintenance tips, stewardship and succession strategies, and project timeline and financial considerations.

We can also customize the consult to your property needs, and may include:

  • GPS mapping
  • earthworks proposals and drainage designs
  • plant identification
  • interpreting key observations of your property
  • templates and maps for organizing your records
  • displaying your dreams in a 3D animated Virtual Tour

Your ability to assess the yard is incredible and after speaking with may gardeners your the first person to determine the case of my wilting plants due to the neighbors walnut tree. WOW!  I’ll have to move a few more plants around this spring to and hope to save the Hydrangea’s. Please book us for your plants for our yard I’m very excited about your recommendations and finally getting more birds, bee’s and maybe some butterflies coming around more often too!  Thank you for the tips and I will start working on a more successful garden!
