Permaculture Designs can be created for homes, farms, schools, businesses and intentional communities. Permaculture design takes the entire “system” of our built environment – the landscape, our homes, humans, nature, animals, plants, etc. – into account to create a truly sustainable and healthy model of living in and with natural systems while meeting human needs as well.
Not sure if a permaculture designed landscape is right for you? Watch this video to see the difference between a traditional landscape and a permaculture design.
Residential Permaculture Design Options
All design work starts with you! I consider myself to be a partner with you on a design and plan that will work to meet your goals and needs. To that end, design relationships begin by asking you to invest some time in filling out the Permaculture Design Questionnaire before the design work is started.
The Walk and Talk
The first is an onsite consultation where I review your questionnaire and also research your property via overhead satellite view on Google Earth and then make a trip out to your property to do a couple hour walk and talk with you. I will evaluate water flow, access, wind direction, solar aspect and many other elements related to your property. I will then answer any questions and give any suggestions I have to help you improve your property and help it work with nature instead of against it. This option does not include any drawn design and concludes when I leave your property.
This service is $199 within a 20-mile radius of 77362 and will incur a travel expense of $1 per mile thereafter.
Full Permaculture Design
This option includes everything in The Walk and Talk but after I leave I will then perform a thorough permaculture design based on your property, needs and desires. That design will be submitted to you in person and you will have the chance to ask any questions or give any input on the design, including changing any elements you do not like. Once we come to an agreement on design elements and locations, I will finalize the design and submit to you for implementation.
You have the option to end the process at this point or to also hire me to oversee the implementation with either your choice of contractor or mine. Implementation can be all at once or in stages depending on budget, weather, etc.
This service is based on an hourly rate of $150/hr. However, I am currently offering this service for half of that rate for the entire 2017 calendar year! Please note that I am already booked through July and can not take any more design customers until August 1.
