Late February, to Mid April, 2019–following a Permaculture design consultation–I worked alongside a homeowner in Gulfport, Florida–helping them to implement the first stages of an edible landscape.
The portion of the project I helped with–and the first area of the property to undergo transformation–was the North end of the backyard (with a south facing fence).
Here are the BEFORE pics of that area:
Over the course of 6 weeks, I worked alongside the homeowner to sheet mulch the area and create two large keyhole beds and a planter wall for annual and perennial vegetables.
The following is a slide show documenting the transformation of that area, and below the slide show are some short video logs of the progress. *I have also made recommendations for the planting of various fruit tree guilds, which the homeowner plans to add to the landscape overtime.
