Mediterranean Garden Styles

Mediterranean garden styles are popular because so many Brits holiday in Italy, Spain and France that they want to replicate the holiday feeling when they return home. Mediterranean gardens are perfect for sunny gardens. Installing a large, tiled terrace for dining is a must, along with an outdoor kitchen if you have the space. Using reclaimed materials or broken tiles to create winding paths is a lovely idea. Incorporating a water feature will help the garden feel relaxed. Don’t forget to add an overhead sunscreen or plant-covered pergola to keep the sun at bay. Colourful, dry plants are suitable for Med gardens, planted in terracotta pots or a rockery. Add an olive or lemon tree to complete the look. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten Mediterranean garden features you may wish to include.
