And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the Cancelas Project in Odemira, after the first rains! We’re thrilled to share with you some stunning before and after photos of the area, now fully transformed with water.

With the help of our expert team at Terracrua Design, we were able to create a stunningly beautiful landscape that not only provides an aesthetic appeal but also serves a vital function in water management. By utilizing keyline design principles, we were able to redirect and manage water flow to create a healthy ecosystem, benefiting both the environment and the local community.

Our team worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was perfect, from the initial planning stages to the final touches. The result is a breathtakingly beautiful landscape that showcases the harmony between nature and innovative regenerative design.

Why is important to create ponds?

Creating ponds in Alentejo is important for several reasons:

  1. Water conservation: Alentejo is a region with a semi-arid climate, characterized by long periods of drought. Ponds help to conserve water resources, providing a reliable source of water for irrigation, livestock, and other agricultural purposes.
  2. Biodiversity: Ponds provide habitats for a wide variety of plant and animal species, including birds, amphibians, and insects. By creating ponds, we can help to restore and enhance biodiversity in the region.
  3. Soil conservation: Ponds can also help to prevent soil erosion and improve soil quality. Water from ponds can be used to irrigate crops, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
  4. Climate change adaptation: With the increasing frequency of extreme weather events, such as droughts and floods, ponds can play a crucial role in adapting to climate change. They can help to mitigate the effects of droughts by providing a reliable source of water, and they can help to reduce the impact of floods by capturing excess water.

We’re thrilled with the results of the Cancelas Project, join us on our mission to create a more regenerative future, one project at a time.
