This rural residential New Mexico property is an exemplary example of a Permaculture design and installation.

 

Challenge:

Integrate food production systems with landscape features that are both beautiful and functional.

 

Solutions:

Green buildings are surrounded by dry stacked stone terraces planted to High Desert plant guilds.  These plants provide shade and habitat for local wildlife, and also food for the family that lives on site.  Water tanks catch rainwater that falls on the roof of the house, which is used for drinking water and irrigation.
