The Permaculture Setback Areas Cross Sections at Taman Petanu

At Taman Petanu Permaculture is used as a sustainable design for the neighborhood. Following are cross sections which relate to the setback areas designed by Dan & Aaron of Elemental Permaculture for Taman Petanu.

The principles addressed during the design development included:
  • Increasing stability / integrity of the landscape
  • Channeling the water around the site
  • Maximum sizes of your pre-defined building envelopes
  • View corridors (ensuring all the fabulous views around the site)
  • Maximum use of both sun and shade at plots
  • Increasing breeze corridors
  • Enhancing plot privacy
  • Considerations for common areas where needed
