Kathy and Bruce McEwen

If you appreciate good things and you respect an artist or craftsman’s skills then you know Jamie and Angela love what they do and will put the time and effort it takes to create something unique,with knowledge and experience unlike anyone else. Seeking mastery takes effort but they are unassumingly true as artists and very knowledgeable. If you are careful and have a keen shared interest in this field you may just end up with a long term relationship where you can rely on them for knowledge and expertise with any challenges you may encounter in the future.

Regenerative Landscape Design on Vancouver Island

 


We provide regenerative land design and installation services for urban, acreage, and farm scale properties who wish to improve the ecology, production and function of their landscapes.


 

Would you like to make improvements to your landscape which include edible plants?

Would you like to increase the resiliency of your home or farm?

Improve the ecological footprint while reducing maintenance?

 

Here’s a summary of some of the services we offer:
Residential and Farm Scale Regenerative Landscape Design

We provide permaculture design services for those wishing to make positive ecological changes to their residential or farm properties. Permaculture is an ethics based design system that looks at your landscape as a whole rather than pieces. Permaculture design is a holistic approach which will require fewer inputs (labour, water, fertilizers) and improve your ecosystem by building soil, mimicking natural systems and will make your landscape more resilient.
We include plants which will provide a yield and/or enhance the environment by helping out bee populations or other insects and birds whose populations are currently stressed. Our goal is to bring ecological balance to a landscape while maintaining a high level of aesthetic value.

Traditional Landscape design for both residential and commercial properties

We are an award-winning landscape design and installation team serving Vancouver Island and surrounding gulf islands. We have developed a company that has been consistently recognized both provincially and nationally for our award-winning residential landscape designs and installations.

Whether you have a new home with essentially a “Blank canvas” or you have an older garden which needs restoration, we can help. The first step is to consider the services a landscape designer can provide. Click here for more information on our residential landscape design services.
We will discover and imagine with you, all the possibilities, and alternatives to be considered, until there is in your opinion, a meeting of minds, a shared understanding of what is in your mind’s eye. Or we will set about to create one that is as unique as you are. 
We will discuss the budget and your investment for retaining our landscape design services.

What’s the first step?

Our first step starts with you filling in one of our online landscape or permaculture design questionnaires. Once we receive this we will contact you to arrange for a meeting with you at your project site and dive deeper into the design process and what deliverables you can expect.
Alternatively, we can arrange for a 15-30 minute phone conversation where we chat about your current situation and how we might apply design ideas to enhance your site. Once we have a good understanding of your current situation and goals we will arrange to meet with you at your site.
Subject to your agreement our design team will create a comprehensive landscape or permaculture design. The next step is yours, to capture your dream and bring it to life.

Wanting to grow your own food but don’t know where to start?

Jaan Designs offers Permaculture and Edible Landscape design as well as installation services. We don’t suggest you turn your front lawn into a corn field, what we will suggest is a wide range of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that will look great, need less care and with the added benefit of providing you with a harvest.  We can get you started.
