About the Author
DESIGNER Michael Littlewood is a natural landscape architect and environmental planner with extensive national and international experience of successfully designing and implementing sustainable land use projects. His mission has been the introduction of ecological design and planning into the mainstream and is founded on years of practice in a wide variety of situations, landscapes, climates and uses of land for public and private amenities on scales ranging from the residential garden to a village or town.
His designs have incorporated his specialisms of eco-building, bio-engineering, renewable energy systems, water harvesting, waste treatments, organic food production, natural swimming pools, wildlife and nature conservation.
In his work Michael has been guided by a belief in the necessity and value of working in harmony with nature, to a philosophy and design approach rooted in the permaculture ethics of integrating earth care with people care to the increased benefit of both. He sees his concepts as a dramatic and conspicuous example of the value of ecological design, where separating and combining functions and uses makes the most of both worlds, the natural and the artificial while at the same time creating beauty.
