What Is Keyline® Design?

“Keyline is a set of principles, techniques and systems co-ordinated
into a plan for the development of farm and grazing landscapes — a master plan
for the elaboration of a “replacement” for the natural or existing landscape.
A principal aim of Keyline is to increase both the depth and the fertility of
the soil so that the soil of farming and grazing land is safe and permanent and
capable of continuous improvement. Thus productiveness of the soil is increased
and the quality of its products is improved.

Keyline seeks to remould the landscape, first, by the proper assessment and
appraisal of all the natural and renewing resources of each individual area on
which it is applied and second, by special methods of planning, design based on
water control, and land management, to use those resources to the utmost for
bettering the soil.” – Water For Every Farm, P. A. Yeomans

Keyline® design was first developed in the late 1940’s by Australian mining geologist and engineer P. A. Yeomans. He developed several farm properties with the goal of flood and drought proofing them. His focus was on accelerating the formation of topsoil by improving the soil penetration of oxygen, water and plant roots.

His concepts are best described in his books:

The Australian Keyline Plan (1954)
The Challenge of Landscape (1958)
Water For Every Farm (1965)
The City Forest (1971)

Keyline® design has since been adapted to many different production systems across the globe.
