ECOLOGICAL GARDEN DESIGN
MANAGEMENT & CONSULTANCY
We use the Permaculture Design Process to create innovative, sustainable, and ecologically-inspired garden ecosystems.
Ecological Design: We consider the garden and it's surrounding areas at an ecosystem level, taking into account ecological processes and the ways in which the individual plants, abiotic features, and local wildlife will interact with one another over time and space. We assess and manage the ecological impacts of our designs. We look at overall diversity of not just flowers but ecological niches and functions including decomposition, pest regulation, rainfall interception, and nutrient cycling.
Harnessing useful ecological relationships to help design gardens that thrive with little on-going maintenance, and provide benefits to all walks of life.
We choose renewable locally sourced products and materials, and specialise in balancing beauty with sustainability, low-maintenance, and the use of native species.

Bespoke Ecological Garden Surveys and Reports to help you turn your garden in a wildlife sanctuary.
Detailed plant lists and species observations are used in combination with dedicated surveys, local biological records and geographical information about the site and surrounding landscape.
Gardens are photographed, mapped and described. We perform ecological evaluations, and provide realistic assessments as well as suggestions of the most suitable and effective ways to enhance the ecological value of the garden.
