What We Offer

Eco-Home Design

Gordon Hiebert, owner/operator, has worked as an Energy Efficient Home Builder/Designer for the past three years. He incorporates elements of passive solar design, minimalist mechanical systems, greywater recycling, water reduction strategies, high air quality and thermal bridge free construction to create homes with smaller energy requirements. Gordon is also familiar with Green Building Initiatives such as: LEED, Built-Green, R-2000, EnerGuide and Passiv Haus.

Edible Landscapes

Element Eco Design employs two certified Permaculture Designers who are able to create beautiful landscapes which are diverse, low maintenance, high-yeilding, pest & disease resistant and best of all, Edible.

Our services include but are not limited to organic gardens, herb gardens, tea gardens, "farmaceutical" gardens and edible forest gardens (food forests). All of our designs are low impact to the land and include initiatives which will reduce watering and nutrient requirements.  

We also do soil assessments and amendments to repair and actually grow more soil.

Make the most of your yard and grow some food! :)

Permaculture Design

Permaculture design is a holistic approach to designing almost anything. It is based on observations of existing systems and seeing how they can interact with other elements to create a more efficient and harmonious system. Permaculture Design also mimics natural systems to create living systems (see Edible Landscapes). Our services include Water Management, Earthworks, Passive Solar Home Design, Eco-Interior Design and Edible Landscapes. Permaculture design encompasses all of these disciplines and puts them together to create fully functional systems.

Initially, the client fills out an Initial Assessment Form describing their wants/needs for their home/landscape. Element Eco Design then does an in-home consultation to assess the site and understand the clients needs. If the client likes the proposed solution for the space, Element Eco Design will draw up a formal proposal for their scope of work. Once the client signs off on the project Element Eco Design will implement the system, or find willing helpers to install the system.

We work with all budgets and scopes (from urban lots to large acreages). If you would like to make your home more harmonious give us a call.

Water Management

Element Eco Design offers an assortment of water solutions. By capturing and utilizing rainfall on your property you can reduce your water consumption drastically. We also offer suggestions on how to improve your water use in your home.

Element Eco Design will supply whole home designs for a Water Management plan and advise you on how to best implement those solutions. Depending on the project we also offer implementation and installation.

Water is like wine ... good to the last drop!
