Permaculture consultancy,  Allyn River Permaculture offers a design consultancy service for clients wanting to put permaculture principles into action on their land.The services offered extend from:

 A quick site inspection and assessment that is appropriate for:

  • Pre purchasing a property and advice on potential permaculture development.
  • An existing property that you want to improve but are not sure where to start.

To detailed site planning and documentation as required for construction. We can also provide on site management during the implementation phase.

The initial site inspection would  include a site walk, inspection of aerial photographs and site and contour plans, discussion of your brief and  aspirations. Then discussion and preparation of a sketch plan illustrating the major existing land features and our initial concepts to incorporate permaculture principles according to your requirements.

Planning would specifically include issues of access, house, shed and service locations (if required), water harvesting , the location “zone planning” for vegetable production, orchard, animal systems and forestry.

Permaculture site planning is a holistic design process that can be applied to all properties whether small urban gardens or large commercial rural properties.

All design projects are individual, there is no formula solution, therefore, prior to any consultation it is critical for the designer to have a complete understanding of the natural systems  in place on a property.

We would be pleased to discuss your specific requirements. Please contact us at for further information.
