“We are highly experienced and award winning landscape architects”


Cape Gardens Landscaping is one of the leading garden design and construction companies in the Algarve. The design team is led by award winning Landscape Architect and garden designer James Marshall. We offer a bespoke garden design service and landscape consultancy for larger scale multi use developments.


All of our projects start with the process of unlocking a deep understanding of our client’s unique vision.


The foundation of all beautifully designed gardens can be found in the plans. Every minute spent in the planning phase saves 10 in design and construction.

Design Phase

Our landscape architects realise the client’s vision using detailed architectural designs and CAD mockups, with iterations based on feedback.

Final Design & Build

Technical drawings, finalised CAD designs, plant and material specifications are delivered, ready for the construction team to take over.
