The following are images of a design that I created for a client in Santa Cruz, CA. The design strives to provide a nice space for gathering with a fire pit, while maximizing space for growing and the integration of greywater from the roof run-off and laundry. There are many intricacies, such as using old trees to grow mushrooms, using the ash from the fire place as a soil amendment, and grafting onto existing fruit trees.
Contact me for a consultation. Services include strategies and techniques for: practical compost, greywater integration, edible/medicinal/herbal plant guilds, soil health, mushroom growing, solar energy and more. Each house and yard is an exciting new opportunity to create a wholesome and integrative environment based on each person’s needs.
