Services Overview

Please see our Site Consultation and Property Evaluation pages to see how our work begins.

Our studio and research farm site in Vermont

Whole Systems Design engages with clients at all phases of sustainable land development and family/wealth security projects —from property selection to site development to master planning & site design, to construction and project management. We consult as well as perform full implementation services at all phases in this process.  We provide a range of relocation services to clients investing in a full or part-time invesment in Vermont real estate or other rural New England relocation as they seek a more secure alternative to city living.  We assist clients in property identification and evaluation in their search to find the most appropriate real estate to meet their goals.  Our services integrate the many aspects of sustainable landscape architecture, including ecological analysis, land planning, sustainable architecture and green building, renewable energy systems integration, planting and hardscape construction, and project management. We also provide illustrative plans and other compelling communications to aid in project fundraising and publicity for private and public organizations.

We collaborate with various professionals in the development of whole living and learning systems, including architects, engineers and craftsmen.


Most of our work begins with a site visit to your location or a meeting here at our studio/workshop and testing ground.  Please contact us to arrange a meeting or site visit.
