What Is Permaculture?

Permaculture (permanent and agriculture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. 

It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people — providing food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. 

Restoration and Cultivation

Salt Hay Design, part of Salt Hay Home Services, creates beautiful, multi-use, food-producing, perennial landscapes, from residential yards and small businesses to public spaces. We focus on native species restoration, biodiverse garden spaces, companion-planting guilds, and pollinator habitats. 

We specialize in gardens that require minimal maintenance and balance intensive food production with ecological and aesthetic considerations.
