Mediterranean Garden

Introduce the Mediterranean panache into your outdoor space!

Cool courtyards built around fountains celebrating the sight and sound of water, tiled patios with dappled shade from cascading vines and plants flowering in turn for all twelve months of the year. Mediterranean gardens have such an irresistible appeal. Fortunately, they are not strictly reserved to gardeners from warmer climates. Gardens in more northern climates can capture the style's essence. Thousands of plants from the Mediterranean region thrive in cooler climates, with the added bonus that most are drought tolerant and low-maintenance. The main prerequisite for a Mediterranean garden is full sun and well-drained soils, whatever its location.
