Mediterranean Gardens

Low maintenance and not thirsty, Mediterranean gardens are great for entertainers with busy lifestyles

A Mediterranean garden is planted with figs, pomegranate, olives, lemons lavender, rosemary, topiary bay, and anise hyssop, as well as many of the Italian and French herbs we know and love in our kitchens.

Features such as gorgeous urns, natural stone cobbles and gravel paths, Moorish or terracotta tiles and inviting pergolas will also help create a Mediterranean atmosphere. Accents of sky blue, aquamarine, terracotta or yellow will complete the Mediterranean theme.

The Mediterranean garden is suited to spots that enjoy hot dry summers. Courtyard gardeners and people who love to entertain and like formal gardens will appreciate a Mediterranean style garden. This style will feel at home next to a plaster home or a villa.
