Understanding Earth as one living being, and witnessing the devastation and exploitation exercised by man,
Mu Landscapes intends to provide space and support for recovery processes of the natural environment.
We are a small, independent team of professional landscape and garden designers and scientists, committed to earth and sea/coastal restoration and what we call 'natural landscapes'.
We survey and design processes that foster biodiversity and support the establishment of healthy, resilient eco-systems.
Natural landscapes, as we understand them, evoke a sensation of a particular kind of harmony and beauty, emanating a sort of wild, undefinable order.
Ideally, and with time the 'soul' of a particular place, large or small, will reawaken and show itself.
Human well-being will be a side effect.
Mu is a term in Zen that is used to describe 'emptiness' or 'that which cannot be known'.
Just as the dancer needs to be able to disappear in the dance, the one who works with the land needs to be able to disappear in the landscape.
We find it is time to marry concrete knowledge and techniques with the ability to stay open and receptive to whatever is being communicated by the land.
In that respect, the land is our main client at Mu Landscapes.
If you share this vision, and feel that as land- or garden owner it is rather time to act as agent of recovery, or if you care about communal land, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We will be glad to help and assist you, initiate and survey the process, or answer questions.
