Sustainable Planning

BRAGG CREEK SUSTAINABLE PLANNING

Let me help you with your sustainability plan

Sustainability has become a buzzword lately when looking at our planet's resources. For the most part it is often in the context of providing your own food or tapping into renewable energy. At Bragg Creek Property Services I believe in this wholeheartedly but I also believe that sustainability can incorporate so much more in our everyday lifestyle, and the choices we make with our home & property. If everyone makes smart choices with sustainability in mind, whether small or large, we can do our part towards significant changes. Let me help you with your choices and reach your sustainable goals.

Get Started

Sustainable planning is something that should be available to all. Scheduling the sustainable plan over a year makes this possible. The plan is scheduled 1 day per week, working towards completing your sustainable goals. Working at a reduced rate with a monthly retainer is my only charge to you. Material costs are submitted as receipts, because my commitment is to see everyone reach their sustainable goals, there is no markup from me. In keeping with sustainability, I aim to utilize smart sustainable options for you. This includes reusing, recycling, or finding materials that fit within the budget.

Sustainability is about smart choices, budgeting & adapting to the situations. My promise to you is not to provide you with all the services below in one year. My promise is to help you reach your sustainable goals within your budget and in a timeframe that’s realistic. Sustainability often takes years to reach and I promise to help you every step of the way.

RENEWABLE ENERGY

Renewable energy. Often thought of as solar panels on your roof. Although this is an excellent way to utilize the renewable energy available to us, there are many things to consider planning for this option. As a master electrician and someone that is registered in order to qualify you for installing solar, and someone that has installed solar on my own property. I’m confident and capable in incorporating renewable energy into your plan, and at the same time making it very affordable.

RESPONSIBLE MAINTENANCE

Responsible maintenance is one of the best ways to recycle and save you money from costly breakdowns. I’ve seen firsthand where properties have been unmaintained for years and resulted in a full home costly renovation. And yes even maintenance to the exterior is even more important as the environment can be damaging to our homes and property. Choosing the products we use to maintain our property can be incorporated into your sustainable plan by making smart choices and materials that are good for the environment.

  • Fireplace & Chimney Maintenance
  • Furnace / Heating Maintenance
  • Lightbulb Replacement
  • Pest Control
  • Plumbing Maintenance
  • Smoke Detector
  • Water Filtration Maintenance
  • Deck Repairs
  • Driveway Repairs
  • Exterior Maintenance
  • Fire Smart Maintenance
  • Gutters / Downspouts
  • Lawn Care
  • Painting & Staining
  • Power Wash Cleaning
  • Snow Removal
  • Window Cleaning & Maintenance

Technology

Technology has come so far these days. Some might argue that technology has steered us away from the independency of our own sustainability. However as a electrician I’ve seen how it has advanced in ways that can improve our sustainability, such as capturing renewable energy or ways to greatly improve the efficiency of products that otherwise might have continued to waste and exhaust our already strained resources.

  • LED Lighting
  • Efficient Electrical Upgrades
  • High Efficient Fireplace
  • Efficient Plumbing
  • Energy Evaluations

Recycling

Recycling is far more important to the environment then what we realize. The amount of waste and organics that go into our landfills is staggering. Sustainable planning is about discovering ways to reduce, recycling and reuse. Below are just some of the many areas that we can incorporate into the sustainable plan.

  • Household Recycling
  • Composting
  • Firewood
  • Yard Waste
  • Storage Organizing
  • Garage Organizing

Water Conservation

Water is a precious resource that should be enjoyed and used responsibly. In parts of North America it is illegal to collect and store water while in parts of the world it is fought over. We are blessed to live in an area that has so much fresh water, however it is our responsibility to learn ways to use it responsibly. Such as collecting rainwater to reduce the demand on treated water or finding ways to make our plumbing fixtures more efficient.

  • Rain Water Collection
  • Efficient Plumbing Fixtures
  • Garden Watering Systems

Home Improvements

Home improvements are an excellent way to improve our sustainable plan. Even though it may involve removing unwanted materials in the course of the renovation, all discarded materials are recycled into their appropriate areas. During the renovation we have the opportunity to improve the efficiency of our home and property and make choices that are aesthetically pleasing as well as environmentally safe. In addition to sustainable renovations, there are some things that just make our lives more enjoyable. Technology is always improving, let’s find a sustainable option.

Greenhouse

Greenhouses are by far the best way to grow your own fruits & vegetables in our climate. Nothing gives you more rewards then being able to harvest your own organic food. There are many beliefs that the chemicals that are in our fruits & vegetables are harmful to the development of our children, leading to a huge increase in behavioural problems. Taking control of what we put into our body is by far the main focus of Bragg Creek Property Services sustainable plan. Gardening and permaculture are equally important, however living in the environment that we do, Greenhouses are the best way to achieve that goal. Greenhouses come in all shapes and sizes and each one has a slightly different perhaps. Let’s find the one that best soots your needs.

  • Traditional
  • Dome
  • Hoop House
  • Cold Frame

PERMACULTURE DESIGN & BUILD

Permaculture is a trend that’s often associated with sustainability, but what is it? If you talk with a homesteader, they’ll tell you it’s raising livestock and growing your own food in a way that supports the environment they're in. To a professional vegetable grower that sells for a living and supports permaculture, they’ll tell you it’s about designing their growing practices around supporting environmental conditions. Obviously it’s too much of a topic to briefly explain, but perhaps an example will help point this trend in the endless possibilities of where it can go. With sustainability comes the desire to stay away from harmful pesticides with regards to growing fruits and vegetables. Establishing a garden and going organic is definitely a big part of the sustainable plan, but it also has its challenges. One of them is, a garden is very attractive to a number of pest that would quickly destroy your hard work. With the permaculture design, encouraging habitats around your garden that encourages natural predators to the pests is one of the many ways to establish a ecosystem that supports one another. In short it’s landscaping that supports a thriving and healthy ecosystem.
