Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision, a nightmare.
Site design starts with the most important element in your landscape - you. I'll guide you in a comprehensive inventory of your goals, the quality of life you wish to create, and who’s involved. By bringing in key stakeholders, we can create a step-by-step plan that sees everyone working towards a unified goal. This living document, as your clarified vision, directs and informs my work throughout the design process.
The physical design process kicks off with a detailed remote analysis of climate, location, topography and water. Site visits provide on-site verification, with mapping and surveying if needed, to clarify on-the-ground realities. An exploration of local economic opportunities and regulatory structures can be included as desired. Every component is designed to endure and contribute, based on the specific challenges, solutions, and possibilities you face.
From design to development, I source the highest quality materials and information available to turn our design into a living landscape. With no incentives or product endorsements, my colleagues, contractors and products are chosen on on the sole basis that they are the best option for the best outcome, for every project.
I can develop detailed site construction plans, budgets and workflows to lay the foundation for your project. Follow-up visits and spot checks help ensure your landscape continues to grow in abundance.

Undertaking this exercise again through a permaculture lens has deepened my understanding of the site conditions and the many opportunities that they represent.
