Écomestible, edible landscaping and urban permaculture

How would you feel about replacing your lawn by a natural, low-maintenance system that would also give you a bounty of fruits, vegetables and herbs? Écomestible is a young business that specializes in the design and implementation of edible landscapes. Co-founder Jonathan Pineault tells us about their approach and shows us around a few of their designs in residential and commercial settings.

This kind of solution not only reduces the amount of time you need to spend maintaining your yard, but also provides you with a harvest, increases soil fertility and creates habitat for insects, birds and other animals. Imagine the abundance if every resident of an urban or sub-urban street decided to implement this type of approach!
