beautiful landscapes in harmony with nature
Discover how Permaculture Design Can Transform Your Landscape
Imagine a landscape rich with color and texture, beckoning you outside to enjoy its vibrance. Picture sunny spaces to enjoy your coffee on a cool winter morning and places for gathering with friends, shaded from the afternoon sun as you sip a chilled beverage at the end of a warm day. Envision a garden teaming with life and the enjoyment of watching it unfold: burrowing insects that improve the soil, buzzing insects pollinating plants, skittering lizards snacking on ants, the aerial acrobatics of hummingbirds, the antics of road runners, and the joyful songs of finches.
Now imagine all this is possible while reducing dependence on groundwater and lowering maintenance. By beautifully contouring the soil to capture rainwater runoff and planting native plants, this landscape becomes more resilient with age as the elements in the system support each other. This is a permaculture landscape.

I LOVE desert gardening—but I didn’t always!
Having gardened for a decade in the Midwest, I wondered if I’d ever figure out the secret to arid gardening when we moved to Arizona in 1990. Grassy lawns made no sense, but “xeriscape” gardens were one-dimensional. Having an attractive landscape was a constant struggle—trying to force my will on Nature.
…Until I discovered Permaculture.
I finally had a system for working with Nature instead of against Nature. My landscape took on a new vibrance and ease. And I had the pride of taking care of Nature at the same time.
As I began to teach others to do the same, I became known as the Nature Harmonizer, helping people create beautiful landscapes in harmony with Nature.
