Abundant Earth is an ecologically oriented landscape design service in Sonoma County. We focus on residential and agricultural properties. We are the right company for you if you want a beautiful, functional landscape that does right by the Earth. Our projects keep in mind the principles of the US Green Building Council's Sustainable Sites Initiative to make every design as environmentally friendly as possible within the constraints of the property and client.
We design comprehensive strategies for water conservation and reuse. These strategies include rainwater harvesting, greywater, rainwater infiltration, irrigation efficiency, and, most importantly, plant selection and lawn removal. As an ISA-Certified Arborist, Damien can help with assessing and preserving existing trees on site, as well as smart tree placement and selection for new planting. Our plant specialities are in local native restoration and edible plants including fruit trees and veggie gardens. As a long time student of Permaculture, Damien is always looking for the connections between different elements in the landscape and how he can build beneficial relationships between them.
Damien has always been fascinated by, and deeply connected to, the natural world ever since having deer come visit his backyard as a toddler. With a Master's Degree in Environmental Education and a broad range of certifications, Damien is an experienced ecological restoration teacher, designer, and project manager. He has experience running his own business and working for two of the North Bay's leading ecological landscaping firms. Areas of expertise include landscape design, tree care, landscape installation, design estimation, and technical water design.
Abundant Earth Land Design is a company with a mission. We believe that every person, every business, every organization needs to change to be in beneficial relationship with the Earth. We are all still figuring out how to do this. Abundant Earth is our attempt to further this exploration in the realm of our relationship to the land we steward. We need to look at not only how to reduce our footprint, but how to increase the size of our beneficial handprint on the planet, and there are few better areas to do this than in how we treat the land.
