Analysis of your wishes, the topography and particularities of the place (orientation, prevailing winds, existing elements), the time you can invest in it and your budget.
A preliminary project is drawn up in order to integrate :
Following the presentation of the preliminary project, we wait for your feedback and observations, we discuss it together in order to determine possible changes to be made when finalising your project.
Presentation of the project with colour scheme, indication of levels, proposal of materials, plan of the plantations and budgeting of each item.
During the execution of the structural work, we begin the creation of the detailed plantation plan with visual support.
Our landscapers carefully and sensitively select the plants in order to create a diversified and balanced system in terms of the spread of flowering, persistent structures in winter and respect for the environment.
Here is an overview of our role in the design of your permaculture garden, following the O.B.R.E.D.I.M. method :
We observe the topography of your land, possible water sources, microclimates, roads and buildings, shadows, etc…
We take into account the external environment of your land (cultivated areas, forest, village, neighbouring gardens, wetlands, etc.) and adapt our project to it.
We adapt the project according to the available resources that we value: energy resources (sunshine, water management and storage, wood, …), the number of family members who wish to be involved in the garden, the time they have available, financial constraints, …
We analyse your project as a whole, as well as its feasibility and we propose solutions adapted to your wishes, your needs but also your means.
It is now time to design your garden by integrating it in the best possible way :
We implement your project and draw up an action plan: with what, with whom, where, when and how.
We can help you with the care of your garden, we provide organic manure and mulch, we manage the recycling of organic waste: leaves, shredded pruning waste, grass cuttings, …, “Nothing is lost, everything is transformed”. We also offer solutions according to the specificities of your garden.

Alternative care is part of a sustainable development approach. It enables a balance between the aesthetics and the development of biodiversity on the site.
Being in contact with the nature on a daily basis, Henrion Landscapers is well aware of environmental issues and wishes to adopt an eco-responsible attitude towards its approach to work.
Lively and interactive green spaces create opportunities for contact between people. These interactions are all ways of participating in the life of the company. These quality green spaces also contribute to health, reduce stress, promote outdoor activities and improve the working environment for employees. A serene, soothing, life-enhancing work environment is a guarantee of quality work and humanity.
These spaces become a support for environmental awareness and education. It showcases and enhances the values of the company. The company can become an eco-citizen by encouraging its staff to reproduce the company’s approach at home.
Besides, alternative management also meets a need to relearn forgotten fundamental notions (knowledge and functioning of the soil, plants and fauna).
Its implementation is a vector for a new look at the art of gardening. It is a question of broadening and renewing the skills of landscapers in response to the environmental challenges.
The word “permaculture” is the combination of “pemanent” and “agriculture”. Initially, it was a essentially a way for a sustainable method of agricultural production.
However, the concept of permaculture has since expanded far beyond simple vegetable practices. It is now considered as an art of designing ecosystems and a lifestyle for humans. It finds its inspiration from the functioning of nature and encompasses not only the care for nature and the land, but also dimensions linked to housing, technology, education, health and the economy.
Indeed, today, one observation is obvious:
The current models in place, whether agricultural, economic or social, have not been sustainably established. They deplete the biodiversity and natural resources that are essential to our survival.
Therefore, we must find other ways to ensure our future and that of the species with which we share the planet.
Permaculture is, without a doubt, a powerful tool we have to help us regenerate this environment. It allows us to move away from our pyramidal representation of the earth’s equilibrium, with predators at the top and plants and micro-organisms at the bottom. This vision infers a notion of superiority.
We now know that all the elements of the chain are interdependent and connected to each other, in a circular system and not a pyramidal one: if we break the circle everything collapses.
Set up rainwater harvesting systems, and taking up small gestures such as turning off the tap when brushing your teeth, …
based on products that are healthier for people and the environment (white vinegar, Marseille soap and black soap, bicarbonate, essential oils, etc.)
from the visible (soil, water, …) to the invisible (atmosphere, micro-organisms, …), working with it and not against it.
Get out of the virtual world, spend time with your children, share with them this conception of life, take the time to slow down, recreate a link at a local level through exciting projects (management of a nature reserve, community vegetable garden, greening of a neighbourhood, protection of amphibians, …).
Reallocating surplus, sharing knowledge and philosophy, teaching, this also helps to recreate a bond and positivity between individuals.
