This Villa by the cliffs at Clube Atlântico was built in the early 1980’s and had a complete renovation done in the year 2019. Accordingly, the Garden longed for that global upgrade.
Yet another asset established by the founder’s family Moeller: Clube Atlântico arose to one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Algarve today.
Established plants were kept such as the stunning Phoenix palm trees, well-grown fig tree, lemon tree, pittosporum, agave, and almond tree, pepper tree, Hibiscus, and much more enriching fauna.
Works done here are ground clearance and leveling beforehand. Sections of this garden arise to its fullest potential with the well-placed installation of natural stone walls to give it the Mediterranean touch.
True to that atmosphere goes along the popular Calçada paving for driveways and walkways along with the entire premises. To satisfy the Clube Atlântico residents, most robust Kikuyu grass was sown for extensive meadows that evergreen. The clear advantage here is the stepping onto that type of grass would resist at all seasons, even during less irrigation.

Preparing the garden area that impresses with river stones as ground cover requires anti-weed matting as subsoil. The multiple benefits here are firstly ground protection, secondly less maintenance work, and subsequently less irrigation.
To emphasize the wealth of plants, most admirable genera of flowers were added to this garden such as the Oleander, lavender, Bird-of-paradise, Gaura, and African daisy. On top, the plant splendor is ensured by olive trees, Stipa grass, lantana montevidensis, and similar ground cover plants.
With the installation of the full automatic irrigation system (which includes pop up sprinklers for the grass and drip systems for the plants, water filters, 4 electric valves, pipes, and connections, as well a controlling computer) this garden is adjusted to the medium maintenance and watering amount.
