Permaculture is a design science with the goal of designing self-sufficient systems aligned with nature, and many times mimicking natural systems. A mature permaculture garden will ultimately be more productive, less work, sustainable, and great for the environment. I know, it sounds too good to be true, but there are demonstration sites all over the world that absolutely run circles around conventional agriculture and landscaping.
For 11 years I was an owner of a successful commercial lawn and landscape business. For 4 years I was a building analyst, energy auditor, and weatherization contractor. Over the past 6 years I have been an avid organic gardener, researched and applied permaculture techniques and design, and completed two Permaculture Design Courses, one of which was taught by the #1 permaculture teacher in the world. My varied background of theory and real world practice in suburban & urban HOA's to the large acreage rural make my designs creative, beautiful, abundant, resilient, productive, appropriate to the site, and realistic to install.
