Permaculture Site Planning

High Sierra Permaculture can design a Master Plan for your site, homestead, landscape or farm with regenerative and relational principles that will improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, harvest water, build soil, provide food and more.

We start with the macro – looking at broad site elements and areas such as the home, garden, animal areas and roads to determine how they relate to one another. This relationship is fundamental to designing an ecologic system on your land.

Once the big picture of the site has been designed specific systems such as surface water management or food forest can be designed in detail.

Designing from Relationships

Once a master concept design is established, specific systems, such as surface water management, can be designed in detail.

Our permaculture designer at High Sierra Permaculture will relate your site, it’s specifics and the overall goals in mind to the detailed  design. Relationship is key with a detailed design – for example, how does the water relate to the garden, the roads or the natural landscape? Do we want to move water faster or slower in certain areas? Do we want to hydrate or dehydrate certain areas of the landscape?
