Conscious Landscape Designs


Horticulture Therapy has been documented to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and heart rate. re intended to promote interaction between sensory responses, healing, restorative benefits, feelings of peace and tranquillity and an awe of nature.  We can all benefit from natures ‘therapeutic gifts’ by reconnecting with nature.

Permaculture designs rejuvenate land and provide valuable tools for sustainable food sources and eco-systems.

Creating environments generates an ecological awareness of the impact on our earth. Heal earth stands strongly behind the belief to create a positive awareness of environmental and sustainable practices . Sound conservation principals are design considerations due to an intrinsic connection with the land, sense of ethical responsibility and affiliation with nature. Design concepts include water management, healing plant choices, solar and environmental aspects, sustainable and recyclable materials.


Areas are designed to provide practical, low maintenance, livable outdoor spaces that last many years. Horticultural knowledge ensures the plants within the design are suitable for the climate and location and provide the desired effects.


It is imperative that the garden or space  is designed to be aesthetically pleasing.  A sense of aesthetics is not something gained through study, although there are many techniques used in designing such as balancing harmony, functionality, spatial dynamics and visual impact.  Human interaction with our natural environment manifests instinctive feelings, intentions and attitudes which foster an understanding that we are the environment, not a separate entity.
