The time and effort invested early on will be rewarded when the<br />project starts to grow.<br /><br />The first stage is a site visit. Notes, photographs and a detailed brief are taken as reference material. Client priorities,<br />deadlines, budgets, practicalities and the feasibility of the site are all taken into consideration.<br /><br />Clients will be asked to consider:<br />- Preferred style I Mediterranean I Low Water Consumption I Contemporary I Country Quinta Gardens<br />- The importance of a low maintenance garden<br />- Whether outdoor space is to be an extension of the living space<br />- Garden functionality such as space for; tree houses and playgrounds, cooking and entertaining, relaxation and exercise<br />- Inclusion of any special features such as artwork, water features, pots, walkways, bridges, pergolas and sundown decks<br /><br />The second stage: A hand drawn plan of the project is supplied for discussion along with mood boards showing coloured<br />planting suggestions and an itemised estimate of the costs.<br /><br />The third stage: includes a 3D perspective of the overall design which will elaborate on the designs shape and materials.<br />Once the final plan and costs are approved work can start.<br /><br />On average it takes 2-3 weeks from client brief to creation of drawings and estimate.<br /><br />Hard landscaping starts with contouring and preparation of the land ready for the application of topsoil to achieve the<br />correct levels.<br /><br />Major features such as pathways, drives, terraces, fences, walls and steps, lakes and banks are then put into place.

They are useful to<br />save space and utilise difficult areas by bringing them into the garden as a functional aspect.<br /><br />rockeries<br />Rockeries - Rockeries are an attractive and informal alternative to stone clad and concrete walls, they offer the opportunity to soften and enhance a both an open terraced garden.<br /><br />Wood & Pergolas<br />Wood – Pergolas / Trellis / Decking - Like stone, wood is another valuable material used in<br />the garden.

The design choices here are endless.<br /><br />Check out the Algarve landscape gardening portfolio section for some original designs.<br /><br />This style of garden focuses on water conservation and clean, crisp gardens with minimal maintenance.<br />We can fit any type of design within your existing garden or start from scratch. The long term effect is both rewarding in your pocket and aesthetically pleasing.<br /><br />We can also create and advise on water features, natural rock retainers, pathways, terracotta pot styles and trellising within the features.<br /><br />Even if your Portuguese garden is the size of a postage stamp, with a little inventiveness and imagination, we can transform a small terrace or neglected square of soil, into your own mini garden of sunshine.<br /><br />A new deck with terracotta pots, a rock and gravelled dry garden, a section of artificial grass or even an edible themed garden with your own organic vegetables and herbs. All these themes are possible and often this transformation can take as little as two days work.<br /><br />Give us a call and we will be happy to offer some simple and free design options and costings.<br /><br />For those wishing to bring a touch of the tropics to their garden here in Portugal, we are fortunate with our climate in this part of the Mediterranean to plant a range of species that adapt very well to the Portuguese weather.<br /><br />Providing they are not too exposed to harsh northerly winds, or planted in frost-prone locations, you will find we can introduce a whole range of different palms, cycas, strelitzias; as well as bananas, mangoes and passion flowers.<br /><br />A tropical theme has a lot to do with leaf structure - glossy leaves, striking foliage colours and an assortment of trunks of different sizes, all allowed to fill and clump together. The highlight of this theme would be to see stunning multi-coloured flowers or seed pods popping through the undergrowth.<br /><br />A tropical theme looks fantastic around a swimming pool creating the perfect oasis, and if it has been mulched with rock and decorative gravel, your maintenance costs are heavily reduced and there is no debris or mess to fall in the pool.<br />For those who want to be big, bold and tropical - let us come and give you a taste of Tahiti.<br />The predominant theme for garden design in this part of the world is of course, the Mediterranean style garden.<br />We are blessed with the wonderful Portuguese climate - no real extremes in temperatures, and virtual year round sunshine. Perfect conditions for the Mediterranean plants and fauna, making our job so much more enjoyable as we are blessed with such a vast array of attractive plants and shrubs to choose from.<br /><br />Whether it's a Provence style with swathes of lavenders you are looking for; a Moorish theme with terracotta pots and backdrops of pink or red bougainvilleas; a sophisticated Italian Renaissance design with columnar cypress trees and neat gravelled borders; or even an eclectic mix with a rage of colours to brighten up your days from January through to December, we can design a garden to make you smile.<br /><br />We will create your perfect garden literally from the ground up - beginning with thorough soil preparation, state-of-the-art irrigation systems and meticulous planning and strategic placement of plants to create the optimum growing conditions, in just a short time, your garden will be ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy.<br /><br />Let us reinvent your outdoor space and make your dream garden a reality.<br /><br />Lawns are becoming quite a luxury in Portugal due to the increase in water bills we have experienced here over the last decade. Boreholes will lessen the cost if you are looking for a large, lush lawn within your Mediterranean garden, although there are a selection of turfs and seeds that can cater for a more drought and pest resistant green area.<br /><br />We can offer a range of grasses to suit your needs, from a bowling green finish, to a dog and family friendly, more robust mixture. And for those that want complete maintenance free lawns, we offer and install synthetic grasses that look just like the real thing.<br /><br />Green areas are essential in your garden and to help you we are able to advise on the ongoing water and maintenance costs spread over a year, so you will be able to compare and evaluate the long term benefits.<br /><br />These days, a large proportion of my landscaping business involves taking out once prized lawns in favour of more cost effective solutions, which often involves artificial grass for those who just cant give up the look of an English-style garden.<br /><br />Fortunately, new technology and a competitive market has created synthetic grasses that really do look like the real thing. Yes, the initial outlay may seem more expensive than the real thing, but when you consider that there simply are no on going maintenance or water costs - it’s an option well worth considering. It is easy to install and never again will you have to replace a broken sprinkler, add fertilizer, chemical treatments, get the strimmer or mower out… the list is endless. Just don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper options that have hit the market as they have minimal guarantees and quite simply, look pretty awful.<br /><br />The geology of the Algarve is built up of three different strata - a composition of red and white limestone; sandstone - which is found closer to the coastal cliffs; and syenite - a rock very similar to granite, which is found in the hills of Monchique -Nave sienito.<br /><br />Used as either rough rocks or cut slabs, this beautiful, natural resource can bring a wonderful rugged dimension to your garden that is not only functional but also architecturally interesting.<br /><br />Many properties in the Algarve are built on slopes, meaning the gradient in the garden is difficult to plant effectively as the run off from the rains make it challenging for plants to take root. Using our machines JCB ,bob cat and kutota & caterpiler  and our experienced staff, large retaining walls can be built that need no planning permission. Stone walls can be built up

With longer, hotter summers and drying northerly winds, it is imperative to keep the garden healthy throughout the year. This needs to be properly installed using recognised parts such as, Rainbird.<br />We also now offer Garden Maintenance - not just the standard maintenance that is often found across the Algarve, but dedicated, experienced professionalism.<br /><br />We provide a monthly service whereby your garden is correctly looked after and attention to detail is paramount. Pruning is done according to the specific needs of the individual plant, utilising fertilisers when necessary and spotting bacterial and pest problems before they take hold. Irrigation adjustments and checks are carried out each month throughout the year, saving you money on your water bills.<br /><br />We offer advice and landscaping options where you can reduce - yes reduce, the maintenance and water costs!!<br /><br />Our aim, when we take your garden on board, is to reduce the hours - and therefore Euros - you need to pay to keep your garden in tip-top shape. Within our service you get a detailed bi-annual or montly report highlighting water cost wastage, tips and advice on how to reduce maintenance costs as well as suggestions on what plants could enhance your garden.<br /><br />So you really are getting first class service from our experienced gardeners who actually want to save you money.<br /><br />Call us today to find out how we can help you.<br /><br />The first step in creating your dream Portuguese garden design is to arrange an appointment with me personally.<br />I will visit, discuss your plans, take photos, make early suggestions, and after digesting all the information, will prepare a free descriptive presentation of our suggestions including a ball-park figure so that you have an idea of the costs involved.<br /><br />This is normally done within 10 days of our visit.<br /><br />If you like our proposal, we will schedule a second visit where we can elaborate further on specific plants and themes and tighten up all costings so that you know exactly what your budget is before we begin to make your dream garden a reality. At this stage we can also discuss schedules of work and payment options.<br /><br />We can also offer detailed drawings of your future garden either computer generated or beautifully hand drawn,<br /><br />Due to the ongoing climate changes, and declines in water reserves here on the Algarve bringing higher water bills, we as landscape contractors, have to adapt to environmental conditions.<br /><br />Back in 2000, we started to offer clients alternative landscaping ideas to large areas of lawn by introducing low maintenance gravel gardens on the Algarve with a range of styles and contrasts to keep both maintenance and water costs down.<br /><br />Once the existing soil has been upgraded with humus, rotted manure and slow release fertilizer, we lay coils of irrigation tubing with small drip feeds attached.<br /><br />Following this we plant a selection of lush foliage and colourful shrubs then lay the area with a porous yet weed suppressing membrane.<br /><br />This can then be dressed with a range of coloured pea gravel with ornamental rocks or graded pine bark with terracotta pots or cork cuttings. The design choices here are endless.<br /><br />Check out the Algarve landscape gardening portfolio section for some original designs.<br /><br />This style of garden focuses on water conservation and clean, crisp gardens with minimal maintenance.<br />We can fit any type of design within your existing garden or start from scratch. The long term effect is both rewarding in your pocket and aesthetically pleasing.<br /><br />We can also create and advise on water features, natural rock retainers, pathways, terracotta pot styles and trellising within the features.<br /><br />Even if your Portuguese garden is the size of a postage stamp, with a little inventiveness and imagination, we can transform a small terrace or neglected square of soil, into your own mini garden of sunshine.<br /><br />A new deck with terracotta pots, a rock and gravelled dry garden, a section of artificial grass or even an edible themed garden with your own organic vegetables and herbs. All these themes are possible and often this transformation can take as little as two days work.<br /><br />Give us a call and we will be happy to offer some simple and free design options and costings.<br /><br />For those wishing to bring a touch of the tropics to their garden here in Portugal, we are fortunate with our climate in this part of the Mediterranean to plant a range of species that adapt very well to the Portuguese weather.<br /><br />Providing they are not too exposed to harsh northerly winds, or planted in frost-prone locations, you will find we can introduce a whole range of different palms, cycas, strelitzias; as well as bananas, mangoes and passion flowers.<br /><br />A tropical theme has a lot to do with leaf structure - glossy leaves, striking foliage colours and an assortment of trunks of different sizes, all allowed to fill and clump together. The highlight of this theme would be to see stunning multi-coloured flowers or seed pods popping through the undergrowth.<br /><br />A tropical theme looks fantastic around a swimming pool creating the perfect oasis, and if it has been mulched with rock and decorative gravel, your maintenance costs are heavily reduced and there is no debris or mess to fall in the pool.<br />For those who want to be big, bold and tropical - let us come and give you a taste of Tahiti.<br />The predominant theme for garden design in this part of the world is of course, the Mediterranean style garden.<br />We are blessed with the wonderful Portuguese climate - no real extremes in temperatures, and virtual year round sunshine. Perfect conditions for the Mediterranean plants and fauna, making our job so much more enjoyable as we are blessed with such a vast array of attractive plants and shrubs to choose from.<br /><br />Whether it's a Provence style with swathes of lavenders you are looking for; a Moorish theme with terracotta pots and backdrops of pink or red bougainvilleas; a sophisticated Italian Renaissance design with columnar cypress trees and neat gravelled borders; or even an eclectic mix with a rage of colours to brighten up your days from January through to December, we can design a garden to make you smile.<br /><br />We will create your perfect garden literally from the ground up - beginning with thorough soil preparation, state-of-the-art irrigation systems and meticulous planning and strategic placement of plants to create the optimum growing conditions, in just a short time, your garden will be ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy.<br /><br />Let us reinvent your outdoor space and make your dream garden a reality.<br /><br />Lawns are becoming quite a luxury in Portugal due to the increase in water bills we have experienced here over the last decade. Boreholes will lessen the cost if you are looking for a large, lush lawn within your Mediterranean garden, although there are a selection of turfs and seeds that can cater for a more drought and pest resistant green area.<br /><br />We can offer a range of grasses to suit your needs, from a bowling green finish, to a dog and family friendly, more robust mixture. And for those that want complete maintenance free lawns, we offer and install synthetic grasses that look just like the real thing.<br /><br />Green areas are essential in your garden and to help you we are able to advise on the ongoing water and maintenance costs spread over a year, so you will be able to compare and evaluate the long term benefits.<br /><br />These days, a large proportion of my landscaping business involves taking out once prized lawns in favour of more cost effective solutions, which often involves artificial grass for those who just cant give up the look of an English-style garden.<br /><br />Fortunately, new technology and a competitive market has created synthetic grasses that really do look like the real thing. Yes, the initial outlay may seem more expensive than the real thing, but when you consider that there simply are no on going maintenance or water costs - it’s an option well worth considering. It is easy to install and never again will you have to replace a broken sprinkler, add fertilizer, chemical treatments, get the strimmer or mower out… the list is endless. Just don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper options that have hit the market as they have minimal guarantees and quite simply, look pretty awful.<br /><br />The geology of the Algarve is built up of three different strata - a composition of red and white limestone; sandstone - which is found closer to the coastal cliffs; and syenite - a rock very similar to granite, which is found in the hills of Monchique -Nave sienito.<br /><br />Used as either rough rocks or cut slabs, this beautiful, natural resource can bring a wonderful rugged dimension to your garden that is not only functional but also architecturally interesting.<br /><br />Many properties in the Algarve are built on slopes, meaning the gradient in the garden is difficult to plant effectively as the run off from the rains make it challenging for plants to take root. Using our machines JCB ,bob cat and kutota & caterpiler  and our experienced staff, large retaining walls can be built that need no planning permission. Stone walls can be built up

It has spread from Asia and Africa to<br />Europe due to the trade of Palm trees and first appeared in Spain in 1993, Italy in 2004 and Portugal in 2007. This insect<br />attacks various species of Palm trees, mainly the Canarian Palm tree, the Phoenix dactylifera and, more rarely, the Washingtonia,<br />causing significant damage that can lead to the death of infested trees. An infested palm tree hosts all generations of the insect<br />(egg/larva/pupa/adult).<br />The female lays 200-300 eggs at the base of the leaves. The larvae that hatch a few days later and can measure up to 5 cm<br />and feed themselves inside the palm tree, forming galleries and cavities, causing great destruction. If the tree remains<br />Symptoms are due to larval food activity within the Palm tree. There is yellowing, wilting and falling central leaves, followed<br />by the outer leaves.

The time and effort invested early on will be rewarded when the<br />project starts to grow.<br /><br />The first stage is a site visit. Notes, photographs and a detailed brief are taken as reference material. Client priorities,<br />deadlines, budgets, practicalities and the feasibility of the site are all taken into consideration.<br /><br />Clients will be asked to consider:<br />- Preferred style I Mediterranean I Low Water Consumption I Contemporary I Country Quinta Gardens<br />- The importance of a low maintenance garden<br />- Whether outdoor space is to be an extension of the living space<br />- Garden functionality such as space for; tree houses and playgrounds, cooking and entertaining, relaxation and exercise<br />- Inclusion of any special features such as artwork, water features, pots, walkways, bridges, pergolas and sundown decks<br /><br />The second stage: A hand drawn plan of the project is supplied for discussion along with mood boards showing coloured<br />planting suggestions and an itemised estimate of the costs.<br /><br />The third stage: includes a 3D perspective of the overall design which will elaborate on the designs shape and materials.<br />Once the final plan and costs are approved work can start.<br /><br />On average it takes 2-3 weeks from client brief to creation of drawings and estimate.<br /><br />Hard landscaping starts with contouring and preparation of the land ready for the application of topsoil to achieve the<br />correct levels.<br /><br />Major features such as pathways, drives, terraces, fences, walls and steps, lakes and banks are then put into place. After this, more ornamental features are constructed such as; rockeries, water features, decking, pergolas and trellis’ using both traditional and modern materials. Once this is complete networks for irrigation and lighting are installed and finally, vital elements such as Soft Landscaping can commence with the laying of lawns and planting.<br /><br />Walls & Steps<br />Walls & Steps - Changes in levels can be accommodated to create a feature, using walls and<br />steps with a choice of stone and planting to enhance them.

They are useful to<br />save space and utilise difficult areas by bringing them into the garden as a functional aspect.<br /><br />rockeries<br />Rockeries - Rockeries are an attractive and informal alternative to stone clad and concrete walls, they offer the opportunity to soften and enhance a both an open terraced garden.<br /><br />Wood & Pergolas<br />Wood – Pergolas / Trellis / Decking - Like stone, wood is another valuable material used in<br />the garden. Features such as planters, pergolas, gazebos, trellis and decking can all be made to a<br />variety of finishes and styles in keeping with the overall garden design.<br /><br />Soft landscaping comprises the essential components which complete your garden, including soil preparation, importation of topsoil, tree bark and gravel, ducting for lighting and irrigation, laying of a lawn with turfs (or seeding a lawn) and the definitive planting of flowers, shrubs and trees of all sizes.<br /><br />Garden and Planting styles may vary from Modern and Contemporary, Mediterranean Dry Gardens through to lush Traditional Gardens.

An initial site survey will confirm which areas need irrigation, the types of shrubs and plants to be irrigated, water quality and any particular obstacles to installation.<br /><br />Lawn areas are analysed separately to ensure sufficient overlap of spray units. From this, plans are produced to show the most efficient irrigation network and the size, number and type of automated controllers, electro valves and sprinklers required.<br /><br />If an irrigation system was not installed when a garden was created, it is not too late!

With longer, hotter summers and drying northerly winds, it is imperative to keep the garden healthy throughout the year. This needs to be properly installed using recognised parts such as, Rainbird.<br />We also now offer Garden Maintenance - not just the standard maintenance that is often found across the Algarve, but dedicated, experienced professionalism.<br /><br />We provide a monthly service whereby your garden is correctly looked after and attention to detail is paramount. Pruning is done according to the specific needs of the individual plant, utilising fertilisers when necessary and spotting bacterial and pest problems before they take hold. Irrigation adjustments and checks are carried out each month throughout the year, saving you money on your water bills.<br /><br />We offer advice and landscaping options where you can reduce - yes reduce, the maintenance and water costs!!<br /><br />Our aim, when we take your garden on board, is to reduce the hours - and therefore Euros - you need to pay to keep your garden in tip-top shape. Within our service you get a detailed bi-annual or montly report highlighting water cost wastage, tips and advice on how to reduce maintenance costs as well as suggestions on what plants could enhance your garden.<br /><br />So you really are getting first class service from our experienced gardeners who actually want to save you money.<br /><br />Call us today to find out how we can help you.<br /><br />The first step in creating your dream Portuguese garden design is to arrange an appointment with me personally.<br />I will visit, discuss your plans, take photos, make early suggestions, and after digesting all the information, will prepare a free descriptive presentation of our suggestions including a ball-park figure so that you have an idea of the costs involved.<br /><br />This is normally done within 10 days of our visit.<br /><br />If you like our proposal, we will schedule a second visit where we can elaborate further on specific plants and themes and tighten up all costings so that you know exactly what your budget is before we begin to make your dream garden a reality. At this stage we can also discuss schedules of work and payment options.<br /><br />We can also offer detailed drawings of your future garden either computer generated or beautifully hand drawn,<br /><br />Due to the ongoing climate changes, and declines in water reserves here on the Algarve bringing higher water bills, we as landscape contractors, have to adapt to environmental conditions.<br /><br />Back in 2000, we started to offer clients alternative landscaping ideas to large areas of lawn by introducing low maintenance gravel gardens on the Algarve with a range of styles and contrasts to keep both maintenance and water costs down.<br /><br />Once the existing soil has been upgraded with humus, rotted manure and slow release fertilizer, we lay coils of irrigation tubing with small drip feeds attached.<br /><br />Following this we plant a selection of lush foliage and colourful shrubs then lay the area with a porous yet weed suppressing membrane.<br /><br />This can then be dressed with a range of coloured pea gravel with ornamental rocks or graded pine bark with terracotta pots or cork cuttings. The design choices here are endless.<br /><br />Check out the Algarve landscape gardening portfolio section for some original designs.<br /><br />This style of garden focuses on water conservation and clean, crisp gardens with minimal maintenance.<br />We can fit any type of design within your existing garden or start from scratch. The long term effect is both rewarding in your pocket and aesthetically pleasing.<br /><br />We can also create and advise on water features, natural rock retainers, pathways, terracotta pot styles and trellising within the features.<br /><br />Even if your Portuguese garden is the size of a postage stamp, with a little inventiveness and imagination, we can transform a small terrace or neglected square of soil, into your own mini garden of sunshine.<br /><br />A new deck with terracotta pots, a rock and gravelled dry garden, a section of artificial grass or even an edible themed garden with your own organic vegetables and herbs. All these themes are possible and often this transformation can take as little as two days work.<br /><br />Give us a call and we will be happy to offer some simple and free design options and costings.<br /><br />For those wishing to bring a touch of the tropics to their garden here in Portugal, we are fortunate with our climate in this part of the Mediterranean to plant a range of species that adapt very well to the Portuguese weather.<br /><br />Providing they are not too exposed to harsh northerly winds, or planted in frost-prone locations, you will find we can introduce a whole range of different palms, cycas, strelitzias; as well as bananas, mangoes and passion flowers.<br /><br />A tropical theme has a lot to do with leaf structure - glossy leaves, striking foliage colours and an assortment of trunks of different sizes, all allowed to fill and clump together. The highlight of this theme would be to see stunning multi-coloured flowers or seed pods popping through the undergrowth.<br /><br />A tropical theme looks fantastic around a swimming pool creating the perfect oasis, and if it has been mulched with rock and decorative gravel, your maintenance costs are heavily reduced and there is no debris or mess to fall in the pool.<br />For those who want to be big, bold and tropical - let us come and give you a taste of Tahiti.<br />The predominant theme for garden design in this part of the world is of course, the Mediterranean style garden.<br />We are blessed with the wonderful Portuguese climate - no real extremes in temperatures, and virtual year round sunshine. Perfect conditions for the Mediterranean plants and fauna, making our job so much more enjoyable as we are blessed with such a vast array of attractive plants and shrubs to choose from.<br /><br />Whether it's a Provence style with swathes of lavenders you are looking for; a Moorish theme with terracotta pots and backdrops of pink or red bougainvilleas; a sophisticated Italian Renaissance design with columnar cypress trees and neat gravelled borders; or even an eclectic mix with a rage of colours to brighten up your days from January through to December, we can design a garden to make you smile.<br /><br />We will create your perfect garden literally from the ground up - beginning with thorough soil preparation, state-of-the-art irrigation systems and meticulous planning and strategic placement of plants to create the optimum growing conditions, in just a short time, your garden will be ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy.<br /><br />Let us reinvent your outdoor space and make your dream garden a reality.<br /><br />Lawns are becoming quite a luxury in Portugal due to the increase in water bills we have experienced here over the last decade. Boreholes will lessen the cost if you are looking for a large, lush lawn within your Mediterranean garden, although there are a selection of turfs and seeds that can cater for a more drought and pest resistant green area.<br /><br />We can offer a range of grasses to suit your needs, from a bowling green finish, to a dog and family friendly, more robust mixture. And for those that want complete maintenance free lawns, we offer and install synthetic grasses that look just like the real thing.<br /><br />Green areas are essential in your garden and to help you we are able to advise on the ongoing water and maintenance costs spread over a year, so you will be able to compare and evaluate the long term benefits.<br /><br />These days, a large proportion of my landscaping business involves taking out once prized lawns in favour of more cost effective solutions, which often involves artificial grass for those who just cant give up the look of an English-style garden.<br /><br />Fortunately, new technology and a competitive market has created synthetic grasses that really do look like the real thing. Yes, the initial outlay may seem more expensive than the real thing, but when you consider that there simply are no on going maintenance or water costs - it’s an option well worth considering. It is easy to install and never again will you have to replace a broken sprinkler, add fertilizer, chemical treatments, get the strimmer or mower out… the list is endless. Just don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper options that have hit the market as they have minimal guarantees and quite simply, look pretty awful.<br /><br />The geology of the Algarve is built up of three different strata - a composition of red and white limestone; sandstone - which is found closer to the coastal cliffs; and syenite - a rock very similar to granite, which is found in the hills of Monchique -Nave sienito.<br /><br />Used as either rough rocks or cut slabs, this beautiful, natural resource can bring a wonderful rugged dimension to your garden that is not only functional but also architecturally interesting.<br /><br />Many properties in the Algarve are built on slopes, meaning the gradient in the garden is difficult to plant effectively as the run off from the rains make it challenging for plants to take root. Using our machines JCB ,bob cat and kutota & caterpiler  and our experienced staff, large retaining walls can be built that need no planning permission. Stone walls can be built up

It has spread from Asia and Africa to<br />Europe due to the trade of Palm trees and first appeared in Spain in 1993, Italy in 2004 and Portugal in 2007. This insect<br />attacks various species of Palm trees, mainly the Canarian Palm tree, the Phoenix dactylifera and, more rarely, the Washingtonia,<br />causing significant damage that can lead to the death of infested trees. An infested palm tree hosts all generations of the insect<br />(egg/larva/pupa/adult).<br />The female lays 200-300 eggs at the base of the leaves. The larvae that hatch a few days later and can measure up to 5 cm<br />and feed themselves inside the palm tree, forming galleries and cavities, causing great destruction. If the tree remains<br />Symptoms are due to larval food activity within the Palm tree. There is yellowing, wilting and falling central leaves, followed<br />by the outer leaves. An infested palm tree can die in a few weeks and becomes a source of contamination for other trees.<br />When discovered in time, most infested palm trees have a chance to recover.<br />If your palm tree shows symptoms of infestation do not hesitate to contact us, as each day can be determining in combating<br />this terrible plague. However, the option of a method of prevention is the most appropriate solution to ensure that<br /><br />Projects<br />Design, clear shapes, carefully selected materials and an eye for detail are characteristics of all of the ECOSSISTEMAS projects.<br />It aims to create a perfect mix of space, light, texture and emotion.<br />ECOSSISTEMAS stands for quality, therefore we choose to collaborate with experienced architects, landscape designers and<br />engineers.

With longer, hotter summers and drying northerly winds, it is imperative to keep the garden healthy throughout the year. This needs to be properly installed using recognised parts such as, Rainbird.<br />We also now offer Garden Maintenance - not just the standard maintenance that is often found across the Algarve, but dedicated, experienced professionalism.<br /><br />We provide a monthly service whereby your garden is correctly looked after and attention to detail is paramount. Pruning is done according to the specific needs of the individual plant, utilising fertilisers when necessary and spotting bacterial and pest problems before they take hold.

Within our service you get a detailed bi-annual or montly report highlighting water cost wastage, tips and advice on how to reduce maintenance costs as well as suggestions on what plants could enhance your garden.<br /><br />So you really are getting first class service from our experienced gardeners who actually want to save you money.<br /><br />Call us today to find out how we can help you.<br /><br />The first step in creating your dream Portuguese garden design is to arrange an appointment with me personally.<br />I will visit, discuss your plans, take photos, make early suggestions, and after digesting all the information, will prepare a free descriptive presentation of our suggestions including a ball-park figure so that you have an idea of the costs involved.<br /><br />This is normally done within 10 days of our visit.<br /><br />If you like our proposal, we will schedule a second visit where we can elaborate further on specific plants and themes and tighten up all costings so that you know exactly what your budget is before we begin to make your dream garden a reality. At this stage we can also discuss schedules of work and payment options.<br /><br />We can also offer detailed drawings of your future garden either computer generated or beautifully hand drawn,<br /><br />Due to the ongoing climate changes, and declines in water reserves here on the Algarve bringing higher water bills, we as landscape contractors, have to adapt to environmental conditions.<br /><br />Back in 2000, we started to offer clients alternative landscaping ideas to large areas of lawn by introducing low maintenance gravel gardens on the Algarve with a range of styles and contrasts to keep both maintenance and water costs down.<br /><br />Once the existing soil has been upgraded with humus, rotted manure and slow release fertilizer, we lay coils of irrigation tubing with small drip feeds attached.<br /><br />Following this we plant a selection of lush foliage and colourful shrubs then lay the area with a porous yet weed suppressing membrane.<br /><br />This can then be dressed with a range of coloured pea gravel with ornamental rocks or graded pine bark with terracotta pots or cork cuttings. The design choices here are endless.<br /><br />Check out the Algarve landscape gardening portfolio section for some original designs.<br /><br />This style of garden focuses on water conservation and clean, crisp gardens with minimal maintenance.<br />We can fit any type of design within your existing garden or start from scratch. The long term effect is both rewarding in your pocket and aesthetically pleasing.<br /><br />We can also create and advise on water features, natural rock retainers, pathways, terracotta pot styles and trellising within the features.<br /><br />Even if your Portuguese garden is the size of a postage stamp, with a little inventiveness and imagination, we can transform a small terrace or neglected square of soil, into your own mini garden of sunshine.<br /><br />A new deck with terracotta pots, a rock and gravelled dry garden, a section of artificial grass or even an edible themed garden with your own organic vegetables and herbs. All these themes are possible and often this transformation can take as little as two days work.<br /><br />Give us a call and we will be happy to offer some simple and free design options and costings.<br /><br />For those wishing to bring a touch of the tropics to their garden here in Portugal, we are fortunate with our climate in this part of the Mediterranean to plant a range of species that adapt very well to the Portuguese weather.<br /><br />Providing they are not too exposed to harsh northerly winds, or planted in frost-prone locations, you will find we can introduce a whole range of different palms, cycas, strelitzias; as well as bananas, mangoes and passion flowers.<br /><br />A tropical theme has a lot to do with leaf structure - glossy leaves, striking foliage colours and an assortment of trunks of different sizes, all allowed to fill and clump together. The highlight of this theme would be to see stunning multi-coloured flowers or seed pods popping through the undergrowth.<br /><br />A tropical theme looks fantastic around a swimming pool creating the perfect oasis, and if it has been mulched with rock and decorative gravel, your maintenance costs are heavily reduced and there is no debris or mess to fall in the pool.<br />For those who want to be big, bold and tropical - let us come and give you a taste of Tahiti.<br />The predominant theme for garden design in this part of the world is of course, the Mediterranean style garden.<br />We are blessed with the wonderful Portuguese climate - no real extremes in temperatures, and virtual year round sunshine. Perfect conditions for the Mediterranean plants and fauna, making our job so much more enjoyable as we are blessed with such a vast array of attractive plants and shrubs to choose from.<br /><br />Whether it's a Provence style with swathes of lavenders you are looking for; a Moorish theme with terracotta pots and backdrops of pink or red bougainvilleas; a sophisticated Italian Renaissance design with columnar cypress trees and neat gravelled borders; or even an eclectic mix with a rage of colours to brighten up your days from January through to December, we can design a garden to make you smile.<br /><br />We will create your perfect garden literally from the ground up - beginning with thorough soil preparation, state-of-the-art irrigation systems and meticulous planning and strategic placement of plants to create the optimum growing conditions, in just a short time, your garden will be ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy.<br /><br />Let us reinvent your outdoor space and make your dream garden a reality.<br /><br />Lawns are becoming quite a luxury in Portugal due to the increase in water bills we have experienced here over the last decade. Boreholes will lessen the cost if you are looking for a large, lush lawn within your Mediterranean garden, although there are a selection of turfs and seeds that can cater for a more drought and pest resistant green area.<br /><br />We can offer a range of grasses to suit your needs, from a bowling green finish, to a dog and family friendly, more robust mixture. And for those that want complete maintenance free lawns, we offer and install synthetic grasses that look just like the real thing.<br /><br />Green areas are essential in your garden and to help you we are able to advise on the ongoing water and maintenance costs spread over a year, so you will be able to compare and evaluate the long term benefits.<br /><br />These days, a large proportion of my landscaping business involves taking out once prized lawns in favour of more cost effective solutions, which often involves artificial grass for those who just cant give up the look of an English-style garden.<br /><br />Fortunately, new technology and a competitive market has created synthetic grasses that really do look like the real thing. Yes, the initial outlay may seem more expensive than the real thing, but when you consider that there simply are no on going maintenance or water costs - it’s an option well worth considering. It is easy to install and never again will you have to replace a broken sprinkler, add fertilizer, chemical treatments, get the strimmer or mower out… the list is endless. Just don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper options that have hit the market as they have minimal guarantees and quite simply, look pretty awful.<br /><br />The geology of the Algarve is built up of three different strata - a composition of red and white limestone; sandstone - which is found closer to the coastal cliffs; and syenite - a rock very similar to granite, which is found in the hills of Monchique -Nave sienito.<br /><br />Used as either rough rocks or cut slabs, this beautiful, natural resource can bring a wonderful rugged dimension to your garden that is not only functional but also architecturally interesting.<br /><br />Many properties in the Algarve are built on slopes, meaning the gradient in the garden is difficult to plant effectively as the run off from the rains make it challenging for plants to take root. Using our machines JCB ,bob cat and kutota & caterpiler  and our experienced staff, large retaining walls can be built that need no planning permission. Stone walls can be built up

The market for artificial grass is growing quickly. Driven by a combination of better manufacturing techniques combined with an increasing awareness of the longer term environmental and economic benefits. Originally it was limited to large sports clubs but now you are just as likely to see it on your neighbour’s garden.<br />The benefits really fall into 3 distinct groups:-<br />1. Lifestyle and ease of use. There is no doubt at all that in our busy lives time becomes more precious as we seek to juggle all our responsibilities. Mowing the lawn can take 2 to 3 hours out of your week and that is for a normal size garden. Artificial grass needs very little maintenance and can free up a lot of time. It is worth mentioning two distinct types of users who also find it very valuable:-<br />a. Older people who cannot physically mow their lawns.<br />b. Holiday home owners who are not always “on site” to look after their lawns.<br />2. Environmental issues. As our weather grows warmer there will be more pressure on restricting water usage. Hose pipe restrictions can really destroy a natural lawn, but artificial grass will not be affected. Another benefit from artificial grass is that it actively helps the environment. As well as substantially reducing water usage we also get<br /> a. No carbon emissions from petrol driven lawn mowers.<br />b. No fertilisers needed.<br />c. Pollution from water run off carrying chemicals into the drains is minimised.<br />3. Special circumstances. It always surprises people to know the varied circumstances when artificial grass can be beneficial. Here is a brief list:<br />a. Dog runs. It can’t be dug up, its easy to clean and keep sterile and there will be no muddy paws. This makes it a favourite at dog kennels.<br />b. Swimming pools. Very useful as ground cover beyond the “splash back” area. No muddy areas to carry dust and dirt into the pool, no ruts from the sun loungers and stays green whatever the weather.<br />c. Roof gardens. If your roof is not strong enough to support a natural turf cover then artificial grass will fill in very nicely. It also means that you don’t need to worry about the grass clippings.<br />d. High wear and tear areas. Very often, especially with children, you can end up with parts of the garden where constant usage will not allow grass to grow properly and bald patches which can turn to mud cause real problems. Carefully laid artificial grass can blend in with surrounding features and help overcome this.<br />e. Event management. We have often seen artificial grass used when there are a going to be a lot of people in the garden. A good example would be if a marquee was planned.<br /><br />Disadvantages of artificial grass.<br />In the American south, with their extreme weather conditions it can sometimes seem a little odd when you get the baked dry yard of one house right next to bright green of a neighbour who has laid artificial grass. Fortunately for the United Kingdom we have not yet had the extreme hot weather of Texas and Arizona!<br />Other disadvantages? Well to be honest there aren’t any. Price wise it can is usually less than paving or other artificial coverings and when you measure the investment over the life of the grass it can in fact work out cheaper than laying and maintaining natural turf.<br />Things you might not know about artificial grass<br />Some artificial grass needs an infill, this is usually sand or rubber crumb. If rubber is used then it has probably come from shredded car tyres! You can also buy artificial grass which doesn’t need an infill.<br />Artificial grass was originally designed for sports pitches and sold under the name of astro turf in the USA. The early versions were not very successful but more recent changes have resulted in artificial grass being adopted by very large sports clubs. In particular for their training pitches as the annual hours of pitch usage can be increased substantially.<br />You can now buy artificial grass cut like carpet tiles. This is often seen with coloured grass, for instance terracotta tiles. This allows you to have designer coloured pathways and surrounds.<br />Publicado 19th February 2014 por Ecossistemas , Arqª.

The time and effort invested early on will be rewarded when the<br />project starts to grow.<br /><br />The first stage is a site visit. Notes, photographs and a detailed brief are taken as reference material. Client priorities,<br />deadlines, budgets, practicalities and the feasibility of the site are all taken into consideration.<br /><br />Clients will be asked to consider:<br />- Preferred style I Mediterranean I Low Water Consumption I Contemporary I Country Quinta Gardens<br />- The importance of a low maintenance garden<br />- Whether outdoor space is to be an extension of the living space<br />- Garden functionality such as space for; tree houses and playgrounds, cooking and entertaining, relaxation and exercise<br />- Inclusion of any special features such as artwork, water features, pots, walkways, bridges, pergolas and sundown decks<br /><br />The second stage: A hand drawn plan of the project is supplied for discussion along with mood boards showing coloured<br />planting suggestions and an itemised estimate of the costs.<br /><br />The third stage: includes a 3D perspective of the overall design which will elaborate on the designs shape and materials.<br />Once the final plan and costs are approved work can start.<br /><br />On average it takes 2-3 weeks from client brief to creation of drawings and estimate.<br /><br />Hard landscaping starts with contouring and preparation of the land ready for the application of topsoil to achieve the<br />correct levels.<br /><br />Major features such as pathways, drives, terraces, fences, walls and steps, lakes and banks are then put into place. After this, more ornamental features are constructed such as; rockeries, water features, decking, pergolas and trellis’ using both traditional and modern materials. Once this is complete networks for irrigation and lighting are installed and finally, vital elements such as Soft Landscaping can commence with the laying of lawns and planting.<br /><br />Walls & Steps<br />Walls & Steps - Changes in levels can be accommodated to create a feature, using walls and<br />steps with a choice of stone and planting to enhance them. Walls play an integral part in creating<br />the shape of a garden, whether retaining walls, terraces, or boundary walls. They are useful to<br />save space and utilise difficult areas by bringing them into the garden as a functional aspect.<br /><br />rockeries<br />Rockeries - Rockeries are an attractive and informal alternative to stone clad and concrete walls, they offer the opportunity to soften and enhance a both an open terraced garden.<br /><br />Wood & Pergolas<br />Wood – Pergolas / Trellis / Decking - Like stone, wood is another valuable material used in<br />the garden. Features such as planters, pergolas, gazebos, trellis and decking can all be made to a<br />variety of finishes and styles in keeping with the overall garden design.<br /><br />Soft landscaping comprises the essential components which complete your garden, including soil preparation, importation of topsoil, tree bark and gravel, ducting for lighting and irrigation, laying of a lawn with turfs (or seeding a lawn) and the definitive planting of flowers, shrubs and trees of all sizes.<br /><br />Garden and Planting styles may vary from Modern and Contemporary, Mediterranean Dry Gardens through to lush Traditional Gardens. A Clients wishes and budget are considered at every stage along with the maturity of planting, including specimen plants to produce a sought- after garden<br /><br />Systems are designed to a measured layout of your garden, lawns and planting - enabling us to maximize the distribution of water but minimizing the consumption. An initial site survey will confirm which areas need irrigation, the types of shrubs and plants to be irrigated, water quality and any particular obstacles to installation.<br /><br />Lawn areas are analysed separately to ensure sufficient overlap of spray units. From this, plans are produced to show the most efficient irrigation network and the size, number and type of automated controllers, electro valves and sprinklers required.<br /><br />If an irrigation system was not installed when a garden was created, it is not too late! Arquiscape can plan and install a complete irrigation system – or re- install it in phases – even in a mature garden.<br /><br />Improve the look and atmosphere of your garden and property at night time and create a safe and accessible environment. Arquiscape design personalized lighting plans which allow you to relax , enjoy and show off the beauty of your garden after dark whilst you entertain.<br /><br />Lighting can be as minimal as an illuminated pathway or the spotlighting of favourite specimen trees and shrubs. Lighting can also dramatize and accentuate focal points such as trees, pools, fountains and masonry within your garden.<br /><br />All gardens – of whatever size and complexity – require regular garden maintenance to keep them healthy and looking at their<br />best so that they reach maturity.

The design choices here are endless.<br /><br />Check out the Algarve landscape gardening portfolio section for some original designs.<br /><br />This style of garden focuses on water conservation and clean, crisp gardens with minimal maintenance.<br />We can fit any type of design within your existing garden or start from scratch. The long term effect is both rewarding in your pocket and aesthetically pleasing.<br /><br />We can also create and advise on water features, natural rock retainers, pathways, terracotta pot styles and trellising within the features.<br /><br />Even if your Portuguese garden is the size of a postage stamp, with a little inventiveness and imagination, we can transform a small terrace or neglected square of soil, into your own mini garden of sunshine.<br /><br />A new deck with terracotta pots, a rock and gravelled dry garden, a section of artificial grass or even an edible themed garden with your own organic vegetables and herbs. All these themes are possible and often this transformation can take as little as two days work.<br /><br />Give us a call and we will be happy to offer some simple and free design options and costings.<br /><br />For those wishing to bring a touch of the tropics to their garden here in Portugal, we are fortunate with our climate in this part of the Mediterranean to plant a range of species that adapt very well to the Portuguese weather.<br /><br />Providing they are not too exposed to harsh northerly winds, or planted in frost-prone locations, you will find we can introduce a whole range of different palms, cycas, strelitzias; as well as bananas, mangoes and passion flowers.<br /><br />A tropical theme has a lot to do with leaf structure - glossy leaves, striking foliage colours and an assortment of trunks of different sizes, all allowed to fill and clump together. The highlight of this theme would be to see stunning multi-coloured flowers or seed pods popping through the undergrowth.<br /><br />A tropical theme looks fantastic around a swimming pool creating the perfect oasis, and if it has been mulched with rock and decorative gravel, your maintenance costs are heavily reduced and there is no debris or mess to fall in the pool.<br />For those who want to be big, bold and tropical - let us come and give you a taste of Tahiti.<br />The predominant theme for garden design in this part of the world is of course, the Mediterranean style garden.<br />We are blessed with the wonderful Portuguese climate - no real extremes in temperatures, and virtual year round sunshine. Perfect conditions for the Mediterranean plants and fauna, making our job so much more enjoyable as we are blessed with such a vast array of attractive plants and shrubs to choose from.<br /><br />Whether it's a Provence style with swathes of lavenders you are looking for; a Moorish theme with terracotta pots and backdrops of pink or red bougainvilleas; a sophisticated Italian Renaissance design with columnar cypress trees and neat gravelled borders; or even an eclectic mix with a rage of colours to brighten up your days from January through to December, we can design a garden to make you smile.<br /><br />We will create your perfect garden literally from the ground up - beginning with thorough soil preparation, state-of-the-art irrigation systems and meticulous planning and strategic placement of plants to create the optimum growing conditions, in just a short time, your garden will be ready for you to sit, relax and enjoy.<br /><br />Let us reinvent your outdoor space and make your dream garden a reality.<br /><br />Lawns are becoming quite a luxury in Portugal due to the increase in water bills we have experienced here over the last decade. Boreholes will lessen the cost if you are looking for a large, lush lawn within your Mediterranean garden, although there are a selection of turfs and seeds that can cater for a more drought and pest resistant green area.<br /><br />We can offer a range of grasses to suit your needs, from a bowling green finish, to a dog and family friendly, more robust mixture. And for those that want complete maintenance free lawns, we offer and install synthetic grasses that look just like the real thing.<br /><br />Green areas are essential in your garden and to help you we are able to advise on the ongoing water and maintenance costs spread over a year, so you will be able to compare and evaluate the long term benefits.<br /><br />These days, a large proportion of my landscaping business involves taking out once prized lawns in favour of more cost effective solutions, which often involves artificial grass for those who just cant give up the look of an English-style garden.<br /><br />Fortunately, new technology and a competitive market has created synthetic grasses that really do look like the real thing. Yes, the initial outlay may seem more expensive than the real thing, but when you consider that there simply are no on going maintenance or water costs - it’s an option well worth considering. It is easy to install and never again will you have to replace a broken sprinkler, add fertilizer, chemical treatments, get the strimmer or mower out… the list is endless. Just don’t be tempted to choose the cheaper options that have hit the market as they have minimal guarantees and quite simply, look pretty awful.<br /><br />The geology of the Algarve is built up of three different strata - a composition of red and white limestone; sandstone - which is found closer to the coastal cliffs; and syenite - a rock very similar to granite, which is found in the hills of Monchique -Nave sienito.<br /><br />Used as either rough rocks or cut slabs, this beautiful, natural resource can bring a wonderful rugged dimension to your garden that is not only functional but also architecturally interesting.<br /><br />Many properties in the Algarve are built on slopes, meaning the gradient in the garden is difficult to plant effectively as the run off from the rains make it challenging for plants to take root. Using our machines JCB ,bob cat and kutota & caterpiler  and our experienced staff, large retaining walls can be built that need no planning permission. Stone walls can be built up
