It is our goal to build your garden with passion, commitment and provide excellent service afterwards. Not sometimes, but always, in every situation with every customer.
At Chloroplastes we offer a first class service in planning and building your ultimate garden.
We support sustainable and safe methods of gardening that reduce environmental degradation and maintain the productivity of the land over time.
For Chloroplastes Company landscaping is more than constructing a garden or improving the ground. We believe that each project has its individual spirit and task to create something special.
As the “creators of the green” (Chloro=green, life / Plastes=creators) we focus especially on the environment. The protection of the nature and the implementation (/consideration) of the surrounding environment is our highest priority. So it is with the right choice of plant species. The plants we choose are best adapted to the local conditions in the Mediterranean climate.
We choose plants for heat and the dry climate on Crete.
Chloroplastes even offers best modern irrigation techniques for lawns or we have interesting alternatives for a Mediterranean dry garden.
Chloroplastes Company creates / scapes natural gardens, green spaces, Mediterranean gardens, but also exotic gardens or flower gardens. Maybe your garden is nearby the sea or at the beach? So you need a sea garden with special salt tolerant plants. Is your garden in the higher mountains? Then Chloroplastes will create a mountain garden with frost tolerant plants.
With Chloroplastes Company you found your professional partner scaping your piece of land! Located in Kalyves-Tsivaras Apokoronas – Gardening on Crete (or even outside of Crete if you are interested in us!).
We are not only specialised in landscape architecture and the creation of free spaces, but also in environmental planning.
We offer environmental studies for protected areas by national and European law (e.g. FFH directive and Bird Protection Directive) as well as for all impacts into the landscape or nature (e.g. from roads, building sites etc.).
We are a professional team with a vocational education and many years of practical experience in the field of landscape architecture and gardening.
Knowledge means efficient working.
Our excellent skills are at your disposal.
A clean working company reveals quality.
We treat your garden as one of our own.
