*All private addresses have been removed to protect client’s privacy We do small and large properties, everything from school gardens (like the one above) to private urban and rural properties. After years of working in public and private food gardens, it’s super satisfying to help create more and more productive spaces – you can never have too many! Each of our designs come with a report ranging from 5 – 30 A4 pages depending on the type of design service people choose. They’re jam packed full of information and detail, functioning as a guide for people to work from to implement the design themselves, or to pass onto contractors to do so. When we do full site designs we pull out all stops and create a tailored manual for people’s home. This is an A3, laminated (so it can hang out in the garden and get messy) bound ‘book’ which provides thorough plant lists, water maps, budgets, timelines of implementation and more. On some extra fun jobs, we partner with local building designer, Jane Hilliard from Designful. She designs the houses/structures and we do the landscapes – it’s the ultimate package, designing both the house and land to create a truly integrated, sustainable home. We can’t get enough of this type of design job – it’s incredibly satisfying as a designer to see people think and live in ‘whole systems’. And for people who just need a bit of support, or a nudge in the right direction we do Foundation Designs. A real joy and challenge as a permaculture designer is finding the solution/s to the vast range of ‘problems’ that present themselves when working with landscapes and people. At the end of the day, there is always a solution – and often more than one!

Over 700 people took themselves around to some incredibly diverse edible gardens and just had such a great time. […]
