What I Offer

The first step in any project, be it small or large, begins with a consultation. This is why I put an important emphasis on establishing an initial consultation session with you, where we get to know each other better and I have the opportunity to learn more about the general scope of your project with its needs and priorities. A typical consultation includes information gathering questions, suggestions, examples and comments that are focused on your specific project situation. The initial contact consultation is usually done via a 90 minute duration video call. Depending on what type and degree of information and services you are seeking and require, a consultation call is a one-time service or a set of consultation calls scheduled at your convenience. Topics generally discussed in a typical consultation call are varied and many, but here are but a few examples: Q&A concerning where and what types of plants to introduce in your garden and problems with growing certain edible plants, Q&A regarding the financial and technical feasability of developping your landscape project (whether from scratch or enhancing an existing space) and tips and tricks on how to use resources such as Google Earth Pro and other design tools to help you with your own designs.

Who Is This Designed For?

Your Context

You are a property owner and are a DIY type of person (or people) with access to resources and equipment. You are motivated and resourceful, but require some assistance and expertize in some areas you're not yet familar with. Your specific situation applies to the following scenarios:
1.You just purchased a piece of land that you want to develop into a permaculture and/or off-grid living arrangement, but just don't know where to start and feel overwhelmed.
2. You own a small rural farm, homestead and/or off-grid property and want to expand and develop the land further (e.g. designing and planting shelterbelts, permaculture orchard and perennial edible plant guilds, water management solutions, to name but a few).
3. You own a property in an urban or sub-urban situation and want to create or transform your property into a more productive and ecological space that extends beyond just a mere grass lawn, plus surrounding yourself by a beautiful garden oasis (e.g. permeable grass paver driveway, planting edible perennials, supported by pollinator species to attract wildlife and birds, to name but a few).
4. Your situation falls into any of the categories mentioned above, though you are looking for hands-on and 1-on-1 on-site training/education related to knowledge and techniques you need to acquire in a short period of time.

“We are completely satisfied with Pierre's services. A design was drawn up for our garden according to our tastes while respecting our budget. A few days later we received a colour plan indicating the name of the proposed plants, detailing each plant with its characteristics and uses. Following Pierre’s advice, we opted for native plants, and grass surfaces have been replaced by mulch, which means that apart from minimum watering, we have no maintenance to do. The project was done in a few days and the results are spectacular.“Danielle and Marcel

“We hired Pierre following the construction of our country residence 5 years ago. The property was perturbed as a result of the construction work and landscaping of a new driveway, which involved the loss of vegetation on one level and water flow issues on another. Pierre started work back in 2018, in order to re-vegetate the property with slope stabilization and water management strategies, using indigenous plant species, deer-proof techniques and natural materials in the process. The site regeneration project is still on-going, but Pierre’s expertize and design ideas solved many of the landscape challenges we faced after our new residence was built. Pierre was and is a perfect fit for our specific type of project; easy to work with, professional and very flexible.”
