On site analysis is most effective: slope and orientation; local climate and microclimate; prevailing and cold winds; water flows and water catchment capacity; soils and profile of the soils.

All form a picture of the major components which will enable the landscape to move to one of soil creative abundance. This is important planning which can save much time and resources later.

We also use historical maps, GIS and contour maps for calculating water catchment and capacity for storage.
