Taking responsibility now lets you look your grandchildren in the eye later. Soil health and human health are closely linked. With the soil as a building block, the goal should be a mosaic landscape where the vegetation is in as many layers as possible. A drought-resistant landscape with the least maintenance possible. To make people and nature happy.
Most people need structure and that’s okay. However, nature needs chaos to flourish. Can it go together? Without a doubt! The two can be perfectly combined with each other. The keywords of sustainable design: contained chaos. The closer the house, the more understandable the design, the further it is, the more the design fits into its surroundings. This methodology adapts to almost all architectural styles and landscapes.
Our current agriculture is going through a difficult period. Farmers are dying, farmland is depleted. Pesticides and fertilizers have a negative impact on our environment, our health and the soil. Through agro-ecological methods, it is possible to revive agricultural land and develop an economically viable business based on renewable and circular principles.
A business exists to provide positive service to the world and its people. The environment around a business has a huge impact on the happiness and work ethic of employees. A view of a varied natural landscape has been scientifically proven to have an extremely positive effect on employers, employees and customers. Everyone is a fan of low-maintenance greens that produce tasty snacks in the form of berries, fruits and nuts.
