Here in the Algarve, we live outside, so a wonderful garden is as important as your home, and paramount to your enjoyment of the region’s unique lifestyle. A beautiful garden around your house will give you pleasure for years to come. Yet, it is a large investment, so it pays to get it right the first time.
Garden projects are complex. Building hard landscaping that looks appropriate and that lasts the test of time; adding planting that looks great, yet performs well in our extreme Algarve climate without wasting water or becoming expensive to maintain, takes knowledge and experience.
Based at a dedicated design studio in central Algarve, Algarterra Garden and Landscape Architecture will work with you to ensure the planning and design process is straightforward, and the outcomes more successful. These passionate landscape architects will thus select the best contractors and materials, and will oversee the build for you, so everything goes smoothly and as planned. They can provide a wide choice of options that range from end-to-end design and project management service, to a simple onsite consultation that allows clients to experience design projects for the first time.
Their ethos is based on sustainability that they blend with strong design and innovative planting schemes, to create timeless gardens for you, your family and your guests to enjoy. Algarterra is lead by RHS medal winner and qualified designer, Stephen Ryan from London, who trained in the Gardens of the Hampton Court Royal palace, near London, before qualifying as a registered designer with the Society of Garden Designers in the UK. He has built 3 gardens at The RHS Chelsea flower show, and designed and built a silver-gilt medal winning garden at the world renowned Hampton Court RHS garden show. According to him, “there’s only one thing more important than how your garden looks… and that’s how it makes you feel!”
