Soil and water conservation:
Drought proof your property with an appropriate system for your context. Harvesting water and, most importantly, building soil are the foundation of increasing your land’s ecosystem and productivity.

Earth Care can be taken to mean caring for the living soil. Above all, the state of the soil is often the best measure for the health and well-being of society. There are many different techniques for looking after soil, but the easiest method to tell if soil is healthy is to see how much life exists there.
Poor design can be costly. And caring for your pocket book is one of our focuses and we will certainly tell you all of your options so you know what your short term and more importantly long term costs will be.
The design consultation begins with a walk of your property. By taking the time to engage with your land we can design solutions that suit our particular situation or property. We will request times to come to your land in dry and wet times. The observation of how the land responds to these extreme weather events is crucial to the design.
