From small garden bed clean-up to full landscape planning and installation, we help your dreams of beautiful, sustainable, and productive outdoor living come to life.
Food is beautiful and has a place in every landscape - in your style. Get a landscaped look with food bearing plants and have a stylish landscape that gives back to you for once! We consider your yard an extension of your home, your family, and your quality of life.
Rainwater is rich in minerals that help your soil thrive. Keeping rainwater on your property and using it in your landscaping is the best. We design water systems that also bring joy to your family - natural swimming ponds are beautiful, fun, and healthy. Scrap the rain tanks and take a cool dip!
A healthy, hard working landscape is so rewarding. Take care of yourself and your investment by having one of our specially trained gardeners help you with weekly, monthly, or seasonal garden care, cut backs, annuals, and more. They're also excellent at helping you know when and how to harvest from your yard's bounty!
We kinda geek out when people want to know more about growing food or conserving water. We're happy to offer consultations and to help you get more out of your own projects, and we can help you connect with a plethora of resources. You can also get plugged into the larger community by visiting urbanpatchwork.org, our non-profit family.
Our team has decades worth of knowledge and experience handling poultry, fowl, squab, quail, and rabbits - particularly in the compact urban setting. We can help you set up a back yard aviary or rabbitry that provides for your family, and we also offer workshops and personal services for getting your feathered and furry friends ready for Thanksgiving Dinner. We know...you accidentally gave them names, didn't you.
Reshaping the land is the simplest and most effective way to bring life and beauty back into your landscape. Conventional "wisdom" when your home was built was "make water go far, far away!". Land stewards know it's best to capture and hold rainwater with rich, healthy soil beds. Our skilled designers know how to shape your land in a way that feeds your soil and plants while solving drainage issues, and reducing your irrigation and water bills.
Paige Oliverio, also the founder of Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms educational and community Non-Profit, has combined her affinity for community advocacy and urban design with her lifelong experience in environmental stewardship and homestead scale food production to create a "whole system" framework for self-sustaining, productive, and restorative land use at the urban home scale. Paige believes strongly that food, water, and shelter are basic human needs that can be beautiful, integrated, abundant, and a natural part of our every day lives...especially in the urban setting.
Paul Oveisi, a former attorney, restaurant and live music venue owner, and native Austinite, has extensive experience bringing teams of brilliant creators and stakeholders together to accomplish common goals, on time and with attention to detail. Paul was inspired to shift from entertainment/hospitality to land and resource management after being inspired by the Earthship Community in Taos, NM, completing a Permaculture Design Certification, and apprenticing alongside accomplished regenerative landscape designers. He believes caring for the land and each other are foremost for a resilient and abundant society.
After completing a degree in health science, Irene recognized access to fresh food was the foundation of health, community, and security. After moving to Texas she completed a training apprenticeship with Urban Patchwork in 2012 and has since remained a key member of the core leadership team bringing her extensive knowledge of herbalism and cultural plant application to each project with residential clients and elementary school gardens. You're in good hands when Irene brings a team of personal gardeners to your home to help you care for your gardens, and you're likely to leave each visit knowing a few recipes and herbal folklore to go with your beautifully tended outdoor world.
