Landscaping company appointed for premium development in Dubai, UAE Jardim Vista was appointed for the creation of the concept and landscape design of Dubai’s The Heart of Europe hospitality development located on the spectacular The World, a man-made archipelago, just 4km from Dubai’s coastline. This iconic project combines 300 small islands reclaimed from the sea and constructed into the shape of a world map. In The Heart of Europe design concept Jardim Vista included Mediterranean Olive trees which typically represent warm, sunny climes associated with the Mediterranean region and are true living symbols of the timeless European tradition. The first island to be developed will be Sweden Island, for which Jardim Vista proposed a lush garden punctuated with elements reminiscent of the Swedish history and tradition – such as the runestones – used along with fire and water elements to add movement and interest throughout. Jardim Vista S.A., founded by Richard Westcott in 1989, celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. Over the last quarter century the company has grown to include branches in the Algarve, Lisbon, Southern Spain and more recently large projects have been adjudicated in the United Kingdom, Angola and the Middle East. Maintaining its position as leader in the landscaping field with a company ethos of combining innovative design and quality installation, Jardim Vista continues to lead the way in the landscaping industry.
