We divide our services into 3 main areas:

  • Consultancy: light and flexible services, in order to clarify doubts for emerging issues, and to provide directions and solutions for the medium and long term;

  • Design (planning): services elaborated and detailed based on maps and topographic surveys, in order to outline principles, strategies and techniques to structure farms and estates;

  • Coordination of implementation, maintenance, monitoring and management: for projects delivered, medium / long term services to streamline project implementation and management tasks;

You can start any of the services by filling out the following form , and specifying how we can help you!

Potential Report

Analysis of productive potential

Succeding a technical visit, this potential analysis service organizes, sequences and describes the current conditions of a property, and points out possible solutions to the problems encountered. Includes maps and technical drawings in autocad + report.


This service lasts 4 to 6 weeks, and is ideal in real estate, agricultural or rural tourism investment scenarios!




Light Agro Regenerative Structural Planning

P.E.A.R.L. designs a "backbone" or mainframe for your farm or homestead, (»5Ha), and presents in a very objective way, the location of all elements in a general map * .kml (google earth) + implementation budget and schedule * .xls (excel). Ideal for those who just need an initial structure.

This service lasts 3 to 4 weeks and is an excellent way to make sense of your project, economically!




Structural Agro Regenerative Project

P.E.A.R. is our most complete service, and includes: maps and detailed technical drawings in autocad (geo-referenced), final infographics (project panel), simplified business plan, implementation and maintenance budgets and schedules.


This service lasts from 6 to 12 months, and is an excellent investment for anyone who wants to install or improve a farm or farm in a systematic, productive and regenerative way.



ON SITE - Implementation & Management:

We organize planned interventions, articulate means, resources and manpower, in order to streamline field implementations. Because a good sequence of work shortens execution times and uses of resources, we are available to help the client materialize the ideas, plans, tables and maps, in the landscape! Consult us for more information!

What is Terracrua Design's P.E.A.R.
(Structural Regenerative Agriculture Planning) system?

Our approach and method is based on the creation of an agro-regenerative matrix or "background" , and is inspired by the principles of Permaculture Design (B. Mollison and D. Holmgren), the Design Key-line (PA Yeomans) , Natural Agriculture (M. Fukuoka), Holistic Management (Allan Savory) and Biodynamic Agriculture (R. Steiner), can be applied in productive spaces and landscapes, in areas and areas with purely ecological functions, or for leisure spaces and pedagogical.

The Agro Regenerative Structural Planning (PEAR) analyzes and covers the entire landscape , projects, plans and arranges all the infrastructures necessary for the establishment of human activities, in deep balance with the ecological framework of each landscape or territory. The purpose of this service is to present the client with a " master plan" of strategies and processes to achieve its objectives, taking into account the information collected in the observation, survey and analysis phase.


  • It focuses on the integration of all invisible components of the landscape (natural and artificial), in a holistic plan of ecological architecture, covering the entire landscape;

  • It seeks to turn the natural conditions of the landscape into polyvalent “allies” of the landowner, through a plan for the management of natural resources;

  • Designs and plans all interventions in the territory, and its adjacent infrastructure plan, for maximum efficiency and low ecological, energy and financial impact in the short, medium and long term;

Organize space intelligently - The network

Before locating elements / structures (houses, buildings, etc.), one should think about an integrated framework, which allows the creation of:

  • A "frame" of structural vegetation that recreates the phenomenon of clearing, to protect human structures and activities, creating shelter for biodiversity, at the top of the hills, at the bottom of the valleys, at the perimeter, in the accesses of hedges and in the green corridors. This network of vegetation will also become a network of spontaneous fauna and flora. This mainframe of vegetation will also enhance the capture of rain and fog and restore the water cycle in these small mountains, recharging aquifers and restoring water sources.

  • Network of dams, ponds, ditches / swales and forests that allow rainwater to infiltrate the landscape, following basic principles such as speed reduction, dispersion and infiltration. The patterns of plantations that receive productive or forest species, in a water-efficient system, enhance the success of the plantations and mitigate surface runoff / rainwater erosion.

  • An intelligent network of accesses, both on roads and on footpaths, which serves as a water capture tool, taking rainwater to dams and ponds, avoiding the negative effects of erosion and soil losses and, thus, accumulating water for different purposes.

  • A network of infrastructures that defines where and where water and energy should go, protecting water reserves and energy supplies and decentralizing irrigated areas for maximum efficiency and resilience.

  • A precise grazing system, developed to allow cattle in an extensive way, creating the structural conditions for the rapid recovery of pastures. This system is based on the rapid but controlled passage of herds in small plots, so that their impact is better on grasses and soils, fixing more carbon and producing more quality pastures.

  • A "light" intervention plan for the large-scale structuring of the open landscape, where a "frame" of contour lines embraces the shape of the earth and gives it characteristics of cohesion and clearing. These lines serve several functions, such as: parceling, infrastructure passage, water retention, green corridors for vegetation, as well as access for maintenance.

  • Diversity in productive areas, polyculture and multiextracted plantations. All productive zones would be diverse in species and extracts, but focused on simple patterns that allow the total mechanization of the installation, handling and harvesting stations.

  • Among the main advantages of having a mainframe design, is the fact that all agricultural activities would be cheaper and more integrated, both in implementation, but mainly, in maintenance. We develop systems for easy maintenance and for total abundance in terms of regenerative production. The permanent gardens benefited a lot from the previous organization of the spaces, allowing more efficient preparations, a structured irrigation system and hedges.

The Planning Process

Terracrua Design's P.E.A.R. is basically our process of analysis, decision making, design and sequential execution, whose final delivery includes:

  • General and zone maps and drawings;

  • Generic designs;

  • Infographics - project panel;

  • Budgets and implementation estimates;

  • Simplified business plan;

  • Implementation and maintenance schedule;

  • Generic schedules;

  • Access to the Terracrua Design database;

It is an excellent way to secure your investment, "making mistakes on paper", not on the ground. Think and implement according to an intelligent and connected sequence, which ensures maximum efficiency at the ecological and financial level:

How to start this process?

Step 1 : Registration on the online form;

Step 2: Confirmation and scheduling;

Step 3: Remote pre-study, based on the information you gave us using the form;

Step 4: Visit the property, collect information and observe. Meeting with client on site;

Step 5: Design of the project, with an average duration (depending on several factors) of 6 to 12 months, in 3 phases; Delivery of documents;

If after this service, you want to hire us to coordinate the implementation and monitoring of the work, you can count on us and our experience and contacts.
