ABOUT US

Welcome to Circlefoot Permaculture!

We’re located here in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area and our home is centrally located in San Mateo County where we service the Peninsula and South Bay regions.
Circlefoot Permaculture is a full service design/build landscape contractor producing beautiful, functional landscapes and farms.
We at Circlefoot strive to improve water, soil and vegetation resources of cities, industry, agriculture, arboriculture, & silviculture. Circlefoot Permaculture offers a full range of services in designing, building and managing regenerative landscapes, watersheds, farms and neighborhoods. Our benchmark as a Permaculture-based landcare company is to create natural environments that will help support the surrounding ecosystem by building soil, catching/collecting rainwater, supporting wildlife, mitigating erosion and disease, planting appropriate tree and plant species, and integrating beneficial human relationships within those systems.
We help landowners, farmers, communities and collaborators prioritize best practice, cost effective regenerative decisions that generate maximum benefit for the resources invested.

  • Highly adaptable and revolutionary. Earth Care, People Care.

  • Design based approach for long term development of ecologically sound landscapes and farms.
