This project began with a solid design. From there, our collaborative team brought the space to life. This Heirloom Fruit Orchard and Medicinal Herb Farm sprang to life, incorporating polyculture planting, pollinator habitat, and passive water harvesting techniques.
Backyard Food Forest
From grass lawn to Masonry Terraces, this Backyard Orchard space will continue to be more abundant each year, with less maintenance as the fruit trees, shrubs, and perennial flowers mature. Native Flowers and Evergreens, flagged by buff stone Boulders and Pathways, fill this Front yard with year-round interest.
Land Shaping & Revegetation
Our team provided finish grading around the property after construction of this LEED certified home and barn. We utilized excess soil to create Terraces & Raingardens, while amending and preparing the Soil for Seeding with a diverse native prairie mix. We installed Masonry Pathways, and Water dispersion features. The new Irrigation system supports the Revegetation effort and the growth of hundreds of Perennial Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers.
B Hazy Ranch
This hundred acre Ranch has historically raised Cattle for decades on flood irrigated pastures. With ditch improvements and a complete irrigation system, they will be able to grow abundant hay along with diverse crops in their future orchard, lavender plots, and vegetable production. With our support, they are transitioning towards patterns of Regenerative Grazing and Silvopasture to improve pasture health.
Fire Prevention & Stormwater Management
The landscape for this off-grid mountain house utilized Water Harvesting Features to mitigate fire danger, prevent erosion, and irrigate an Alpine Garden.
The Backyard Geodome Experiment has been an ongoing experiment in Climate Stabilization and Food Security. Manufactured from scratch with care and attention to detail, the first draft has been revised and upgraded for Round 2. Stay tuned for the incorporation of Arduino Controls, Earth Plasters, and of course state of the art Aquaponics Food Production.
Connect with the natural world in urban spaces. These sleek wicking beds utilize a fraction of the water of conventional raised beds. They offer a low maintenance garden that can provide fresh vegetables & herbs in your home.
