How Much Does A Permaculture Design Cost?
When assisting a person or a family we will assess what is really desired from a permaculture design. Do the people involved wish to focus on food production, beauty, security, sustainability, etc.? The vision for a property drives a good part of the design.
We also want to assess the skill level, experience and knowledge of our clients. If they are strong in these areas then possibly just walking the property together and sketching out some ideas at the kitchen table will give our client all of the confirmation and insight they need to get a good start on their own design.
Someone else with the exact same piece of property who is new to working with soils, plants and other systems might really benefit from a full design that places everything on the landscape. This is especially helpful when hiring others to assist with implementation.
Here are the services we have found useful to others and the price ranges of each.
1. Phone Consultations
Please Note: The full amount invested in either a Phone Consultation or a WalkAbout will be deducted from the price of a Permaculture Design if purchased later.
Prices vary by property size and complexity of the design desired. Here are some estimates for property sizes of 1-25 acres.
3. Framework Designs –Est: $1,000 – $8,000
4. Full Designs –Est. $2,500 – $15,000
5. Full Design & Project Management

|Feedback on the WalkAbouts…|
|“We really enjoyed the WalkAbout. I could see Bill’s wheels turning as he would look at a spot. We got some good feedback. I am excited about creating a little sanctuary to the side of the house, which I can envision now with Bill’s ideas. Also excited to look at guilds more. I would like to have more food available at an easily accessible place, and will work towards building up from our home outward. I will be reading more about permaculture, and appreciate the handout booklet Bill gave us. It all makes sense, doesn’t it?”|

|“The walkabout was great! We chatted away the full 2-hrs. Being a newbie, I am looking at a blank canvas and didn’t know where to start, how much to attempt, etc. Bill had good ideas for short term and long term goals. He went over available resources for plants and ideas. It was great having a fresh set of eyes look at my place and see potential for a spiral garden here, a swale there, possible greenhouse, plant groupings or where focal specimen trees should go. I think I was most surprised about how little area is really needed if used well.The WalkAbout was exactly what I’d hoped for and easily worth the price.”|

|“We had an overall great experience with our Walkabout! He definitely showed his expertise in the Permaculture realm and did not disappoint. He was good at explaining concepts and was thoroughly engaging. He helped us analyze our yard to address the water issues we were concerned about.”|
