Vital Gardens Team



It all started with a garden and landscaping passion for creating customer-tailored outdoor spaces for high-end homes, businesses, and public spaces.

Vital Gardens, Lda. is a landscaping and gardening company, established in Carvoeiro in 2007. The founder Jan L. Steenken specializes in outdoor living and landscape design. He is German, born in the Algarve, where he lives today, and plays Tennis, Golf, and Paddle passionately. 

After obtaining his education and qualifications in Germany, working in a recognized landscape gardening company, he furthers his knowledge in Australia & California. Above all, on exotic plants, resources, and irrigation systems. 

He gained experience in garden and landscape design with a dedication to a green environment, working with various plants and materials from three continents. 

This wide-ranging professional experience greatly benefits Jan Steenken’s garden design in the Algarve. He ultimately strives for customer satisfaction.
