Retreat to the Mediterranean with your very own Mediterranean style garden. With a contrast of bright colours and earthy hues, this garden style is summery, laid back and suited for wet winters and dry summers. Unlike other gardens, the landscape (rather than the flora) is the focus of this garden which typically has no lawn. Open surfaces are either paved or covered in gravel. To create your perfect Mediterranean retreat, combine landscapes using durable earthy materials like stone, concrete or ceramics, in rich earthy shades like terracotta and sandstone, with plant species which are resilient to drier climates. Mix in some herb or fruit plants to add scent and colour to your garden. From the European Olive, Eureka Lemon, Australian Cranesbill to Pencil Pine, take a look at our selection of plants for some inspiration for your very own Mediterranean garden.
