Implementing Permaculture: Mimicking Nature

Implementing permaculture design into the home garden doesn’t have to be a complex and drawn-out process, you just have to look at what nature is doing and follow her lead.

The aim of using permaculture design in the home garden is to imitate nature and allow your garden to maintain itself with minimal input from humans. In nature no element stands alone. Our natural ecosystems are made up of complex synergies where plants, animals, insects and the elements are all working together supporting and nourishing one another.

In healthy ecosystems all these parts are effortlessly working together, feeding and creating habitats for one another to survive. You too can create a garden where you can allow nature to do a lot of the work.
