In the late 20th Century, permaculture started to become used as a design tool by gardeners and farmers as a way to ecologically design gardens. Permaculture had 3 main guiding design ideas:

  1. Care for all the people.
  2. Care for the planet.
  3. Pass on any surplus created in a system. For example, if a wall retains heat, pass on the heat to a plant that needs it; if a plant provides shelter, place it on a wall that needs cooling.
