What is permaculture design?
Permaculture design is the science of designing food production and life systems (among other things) to work together. Through permaculture, your garden or farm, and life, will function increasingly better every day. Permaculture is the science of creating abundance in systems.
It is not a religious set of beliefs, though it can be ascribed to any religious set of beliefs.
What can he do?
Chris has a magical touch when it comes to growing things. He can take an unproductive, cost-prohibitive yard that takes all your time in the summer to keep it green, and turn it into something that will cost less money and time, and can even provide you with a supplemental source of income or food.
Chris loves to use perennial plants that provide shade, mulch, and food in order to turn your lawn into an Eden. His favorites are the ones that can also be used as food or medicine, but he knows that those produce a lot of work along with the food, so that's not all he'll use. Chris will use trees, shrubs, and ground covers of all sorts to create year-round color and variety.
When you hire him to design your perennial landscape:
He'll ask you what you want, what your hopes and dreams are.
He'll tell you your options, and he'll talk with you about maintaining your landscape.
He'll draw up plans for your approval, that mesh your dreams with his expertise.
He'll listen when you want to make changes or revisions to those plans.
He'll even install them for you! (Or at least recommend some top caliber installers!)
What has he done?
Below, you'll see a sample of what Chris has designed for our own farm. We are still implementing that design, but we will post photos as they come along!
Chris is currently working on designs for his family in Oregon, and for a piece of property in New Mexico. We will post samples as they are available. We are also currently working with 2 clients, and will have those samples available upon request.
