ACER Espacios Naturales is an adventure that takes its first steps in 1999, two years after the arrival in Malaga of Ignacio Benthem, founder and alma mater of the company. After working as technical director at an environmental engineering company, he soon realizes the possibilities that the Costa del Sol has to unleash his restless spirit as a landscape creator. And this is how he works and gives shape to ACER, currently a reference firm in gardening throughout Spain.
Today, the company combines the veteranity and experience of two decades of evolution and working with a very young team that considers themselves the ACER family.
The first vertical garden.
After establishing its growth in the first years in various public works and private promotions on the Costa, in 2012 comes a milestone that places ACER in the first division of Spanish gardening: Muelle Uno and the commission of a vertical garden for the restaurant of the Michelin star José Carlos García. Ignacio travels to France with his uncle Jorge to acquire this almost unknown modality until then in Spain and thus carry out a project that the magazine ‘ABC Viajar’ describes as “the fourth most amazing vertical garden in the world”.
The Hotel Miramar gardens
In 2016, ACER Espacios Naturales designs and executes the gardens of the Miramar Hotel on behalf of the Hoteles Santos Group, the architect of the resurrection of this historic and emblematic building. The success achieved by a work defined unanimously as very special and very careful consecrates ACER as a reference of high quality ‘prime’ gardening and puts it in an excellent position for its expansion in the future.
In that forward look, the company already works on major projects in Madrid, Marbella, Sotogrande and Ibiza.
