In today’s stressful world of increasing prices, EcoEdge Design can help save you money and bring tranquility to your life.

We offer sustainable environmental design and consultation services for homes, gardens, farms, and water systems as well as consultancy for prospective land and home buyers. We are also happy to assist NGOs with overseas or domestic projects, including educational seminars.

How do we do it?

We plan out your project using the sustainable design science of permaculture. With each design we

1. Interview you and visit your site in person to collect data.

2. Analyse the site data and conduct any research needed.

3. Desired what elements are needed in your plan to achieve your goals.

4. Place the elements in the design for maximum efficiency and interactivity.

5. Can help implement the design and assist with any planting needed.

6. Will advise you on the long-term care of the site and show you how to deal with potential problems.

A typical urban plan on an existing home might include inexpensive solar reflectors to boost the home’s natural solar gain, living windbreaks to improve the home’s energy efficiency and protect plants, rainwater harvesting systems connected to dripline irrigation to make watering easier, and a thickly sheet-mulched garden seeded with beneficial mycelium to help protect the plants from disease and boost their growth.

Plans for farmers include drought-proofing strategies, erosion and salinisation prevention and nitrogen-fixing windbreaks that can lead to up to 20% increases in livestock weight, up to 45% increase in corn yields, 60 to 70% increase in alfalfa yields and up to 30% increases in wheat yields. Modern farms face the problem of soil loss through wind and water erosion. We not only tackle erosion problems, we design systems that build rich, healthy soil.
