Landuse Planning &
Use Planning and Consultation
Whether you are purchasing property,
building a home, creating a landscape, or building a new development,
careful forethought and appropriate design saves time, money, and the
Our approach to land-use consultation and project planning
is deeply founded in the concepts of Permaculture design.
Permaculture design begins with site and
project specific resource analysis and achieves environmental
through creative problem solving, and highly interactive land planning. Permaculture designs cooperate with natural
processes in order to yield the most from an integrated site and plan
protecting natural amenities.
We offer many levels of planning and consultation services
from initial project feedback and basic site assessments all the way
detailed site analysis and project master planning.
