I provide 1-3 hour consultations or full designs to help you create the sustainable - and actively regenerative - home landscape or farm you've been dreaming of. I've viewed and analyzed hundreds of diverse sites and can help you save time and money getting the results you want on your site. I work from a holistic, integrated viewpoint and understand that all elements must be considered to create a truly sustainable and resilient design. I help you assess needs and resources and help connect the dots in a way that will bring your project to the next level, and keep getting better. I consider that a regenerative approach goes several steps beyond sustainable, as it doesn't just prevent further degradation - it actively heals the earth and communities. An example would be regenerative agriculture which builds depleted soils, increases diversity and wildlife habitat, renews water supplies and makes them healthier, and creates more economic resiliency.
My Site Assessment involves a thorough observation and documentation of all the important features and elements of your system. Water flow, topography, solar aspect, micro-climates, soils, access, and threats such as flood and fire are all identified. This Site Assessment becomes the backbone of your design prioritization and can either stand alone or be integrated into a Padden Permaculture Site Design.
From 10 year master plans to patios and edible landscapes, Padden Permaculture brings a new design perspective to the table. No where else will you find the integrative design methodology that is delivered in a Padden Permaculture Design. From rainwater harvesting sunken gardens and xiriscapes, to bioswales and curbcuts, I am pushing the leading edge for water conscious design.
Padden Permaculture offers full installation services of all ecological landscape components including rainwater harvesting and infiltration systems, perennial food crops and trees, greenhouses, animal systems, flowers, and medicinal polycultures. I specialize in hard scape installations such as retaining walls, patios, and walkways.
