I have a 40 acre property that I need an overall land use plan design, utilizing permaculture design principles, and a landscape plan for the various housing structures and new main entrance area that provides a greater level of detail for these areas.
This property currently has a house that I use for my office and a 60x80 barn that is used for our shop (we currently manufacture decorative cast stone and do light welding). Additionally, we run cattle on the pasture land. The land also has three small ponds, two of which are primarily for overflow for flood events. 1/2 of the property is in the 100 year flood plan, so we just use that area for cattle grazing.
I want to utilize part of the pasture land for growing vegetables, add a main entrance drive from the road to the house, set aside a section to add 3 tiny houses and 2 large livable tree houses that use composting toilets, rainwater collection and solar electricity. Basically, it is a bare canvas that I want to work with someone to help me put on paper all of the elements I would like to add on to this site, to make it self-sustaining and income generating. We have five wedding venue sites within a five mile radius to the farm, so it is a perfect location to put in tiny houses used as weekend guest facilities for these venues.
What I want is a site plan and 3d visual that shows all of these elements as well as other elements that need to be designed into the plan, such as swales, fruit and vegetable gardens, the tiny houses, rainwater collection tanks etc. etc. As well as a landscape plan that shows locations of planting beds for each of the tiny houses and the office. I am a landscaper, so I do not need plant materials called out, I just need the plan. (I am a lousy artist, but a very good landscaper. My husband wants to see it all on paper and not just in my head)
What I can provide for you to design from is:
1. A current civil plan showing property elevations and locations of current improvements.
2. A drone flyover video showing the property and the current improvements
3. Still photos of everything that is here
4. A marked up civil plan indicating where I would like to see new improvements located
5. Detail measurements of existing improvements
6. Any thing else you need for the most part.
