Free wood chips are a great resource for planting trees. I noticed you're on a fairly small Island - is it possible to get seaweed for composting?
By the "the pit (sumps?) of the house" do you mean where the toilet water goes, or just roof run-off? If it's a toilet sump, here we would grow plants for composting or firewood around it to suck up the nutrients without risking contaminating our food. In my ecosystem, a plant such as comfrey would love the high nutrients and make great material to chop and mulch or compost. I don't know the plants like that in your ecosystem.

These are other questions I might ask, too:
What does the slope of your land look like?
* I do not know how to see that
How does water travel across your land (this might help you figure out the slopes on your land)?
*My land its mostly plain, water doesnt gather that much! Well drained soil..
What resources do you have available to work with?
* I have been able to get woodchips for free! most of my trees im starting from seed! for example: Moringa Oleifera, Kiwis, Passion fruit, Blueberries and Quinces ( for now)
Those are my only resources at the moment ahah
I think these questions might help with fleshing out the design more.
For example, slope could be used to help find good locations to plant water-loving plants and where to place drought-resistant plants.
And, the movement of sun on your landscape might tell where the best places to sun-loving plants and shade-loving plants.
