The Malaga City Council has awarded Althenia the contract for the conservation and maintenance of the green areas of the Botanical-Historical Garden of La Concepción.
As communicated by the Environmental Sustainability Department of the City Council, this is a special contract due to the unique environment and its particular characteristics, which require more staff and dedication. The total area covered by the service will be 137,475 m2 of gardens, excluding forested areas.
Althenia, Sando’s environmental services company, will provide the service with specialised operatives and an arborist. It will also include the necessary material means, such as machinery and electric vehicles, to reduce pollutant emissions and noise on the site.
Actions in detail
Althenia will maintain the green areas of the Botanical-Historical Garden of La Concepción, including preventive and corrective maintenance, repair and replacement of any installed element. It will take care of furniture, irrigation systems, and water collection in this respect. It will also maintain the existing pavements on the interior roads.
The garden, recognised in 1943 as a “historic-artistic garden”, covers 3.5 hectares. Its main value lies in its characteristic topography, intact layout, and the collection of subtropical flora it houses. Around it is the botanical garden, where the plant collections are organised according to scientific criteria.
