Professional Consultancy and Design Services:
We divide our services into 3 main areas:
Consultancy: light and flexible services, in order to clarify doubts for emerging issues, and to provide directions and solutions for the medium and long term;
Design (planning): services elaborated and detailed based on maps and topographic surveys, in order to outline principles, strategies and techniques to structure farms and estates;
Coordination / implementation, maintenance, monitoring and management: for projects delivered, medium / long term services to streamline project implementation and management tasks;
You can start any of the services by filling out the following form , and specifying how we can help you!
Planning & Design Services:
Analysis of productive potential
Succeding a technical visit, this potential analysis service sequences and describes, the current conditions of a property, and points out possible solutions to the problems encountered. Includes map in GIS/SIG (qgis/qfield)+ report.
This service lasts 4 to 6 weeks, and is ideal in real estate, agricultural or rural tourism investment scenarios!
Light Agro Regenerative Structural Planning
P.E.A.R.L. designs a "backbone" or mainframe for your farm or homestead, (»5Ha), and presents in a very objective way, the location of all elements in a masterplan in GIS/SIG (qgis/qfield) + implementation budget and timeline* .xls (excel). Ideal for those who just need an initial structure.
This service lasts 3 to 4 months and is an excellent way to make sense of your project, economically!
Structural Agro Regenerative Project
P.E.A.R. (»50Ha) is our most complete service, and includes: full masterplan in GIS/SIG (qgis/qfield) final infographics (project panel), simplified business plan, implementation budget and timeline* .xls (excel).
This service lasts from 6 to 12 months, and is an excellent investment for anyone who wants to install or improve a farm in a systematic, productive and regenerative way.
We organize planned interventions, articulate means, resources and manpower, in order to streamline field implementations. Because a good sequence of work shortens execution times and uses of resources, we are available to help the client materialize the ideas, plans, tables and maps, in the landscape! Consult us for more information!
What is Terracrua Desig'n P.E.A.R. system?
Our approach and method is based on the creation of an agro-regenerative matrix or mainframe, and is inspired by the principles of Permaculture Design (B. Mollison and D. Holmgren), the Design Key-line (PA Yeomans) , Natural Agriculture (M. Fukuoka), Holistic Management (Allan Savory) and Biodynamic Agriculture (R. Steiner), can be applied in productive spaces and landscapes, in areas and areas with purely ecological functions, or for leisure spaces and pedagogical.
The Agro Regenerative Structural Planning (PEAR) analyzes and covers the entire landscape , projects, plans and arranges all the infrastructures necessary for the establishment of human activities, in deep balance with the ecological framework of each landscape or territory. The purpose of this service is to present the client with a " master plan" of strategies and processes to achieve its objectives, taking into account the information collected in the observation, survey and analysis phase.
It focuses on the integration of all invisible components of the landscape (natural and artificial), in a holistic plan of ecological architecture, covering the entire landscape;
It seeks to turn the natural conditions of the landscape into polyvalent “allies” of the landowner, through a plan for the management of natural resources;
Designs and plans all interventions in the territory, and its adjacent infrastructure plan, for maximum efficiency and low ecological, energy and financial impact in the short, medium and long term;
Organize space intelligently - the network:
This grid or mainframe design would structure your land, and optimize all the investments you need to do. Whether it is in a short, medium and long term perspective:
What does the Terracrua Design Mainframe entail:
A structural vegetation grid that recreates the glade phenomenon, to protect human structures and activities, while creating shelter for biodiversity, on the top of the hills, on the bottom of the valleys, on the perimeter, on access hedges, and on green corridors. This network of vegetation will also become a network of spontaneous flora and fauna. This vegetation mainframe will also maximize the rain and fog capture, and restore the water cycle, recharge aquifers and restoring the water sources.
A water network of dams, ponds, swales and forests that allow rain water to infiltrate on the landscape, following the S.S.S. principles, namely slow, spread and sink. Plantation patterns that host productive or forestry species, on a water efficient mainframe, maximize the success of the plantations and hold the rainwater runoffs.
A smart network of accesses, both roads and pedestrian tracks, that serve also as a water catchment tool, driving the surface rainwater runoff towards dams and ponds, avoiding the negative effects of erosion and soil loss, thus accumulating water for different purposes.
A infrastructure web that defines where from and where to water and energy have to go, protecting the water reserves and the energy supply, and decentralizing water areas for efficiency.
A structured grazing system, developed to allow extensive landscape grazing, creating the structural conditions for the fast recovery of pastures.This system is based on the fast but controlled passage of the herds in small parcels, so their impact is better on grasses and soils, fixing more carbon and producing more quality pasture.
A "light" intervention plan to structure the open landscape, where a grid embraces the shape of the earth, and gives it cohesion, and glade characteristics. These contour lines serve several functions such as: paddocking facilities, infrastructures, water retention, green corridors for vegetation, as well as access for maintenance.
Diversity in productive areas, polyculture and multilayered plantations. All productive zones would be diverse in species and layers, but focused in simple patterns that allow full mechanization for installation, management and cropping routines.
The Planning Process:
Terracrua Design's P.E.A.R. is basically our process of analysis, decision making, design and sequential execution, whose final delivery often includes:
General and zone maps and drawings;
Infographics - project panel;
Budgets and implementation estimates;
Simplified business plan;
Implementation and maintenance schedule;
Access to the Terracrua Design database;
It is an excellent way to secure your investment, "making mistakes on paper", not on the field. Think and implement according to an intelligent and connected sequence, which ensures maximum efficiency at the ecological and financial level:
How to start this process?
Step 1 : Registration on the online form;
Step 2: Confirmation and scheduling;
Step 3: Remote pre-study, based on the information you gave us using the form;
Step 4: Visit the property, collect information and observe. Meeting with client on site;
Step 5: Design of the project, with an average duration (depending on several factors) of 6 to 12 months, in 3 phases; Delivery of documents;
If after this service, you want to hire us to coordinate the implementation and monitoring of the work, you can count on us and our experience and contacts.
