The Mediterranean Style Garden

The Mediterranean style garden is perfect theme for gardens almost everywhere in the USA. With elements and planting ideas taken from Spanish courtyards, Italian terraces and Grecian landscapes these gardens are both low maintenance and drought tolerant and they are not restricted to the warmer climates and many plants from the Mediterranean regions can flourish in any region of the country.


A Mediterranean Style Courtyard

Serenity and beauty are the key themes of the Mediterranean garden. The essential elements include the tranquil sounds and sights of water fountains, wall tiles, cascading vines and plants with brilliant floral splashes of bright reds and yellows of geraniums, bougainvillea, and hibiscus. Cacti are also popular as well as fruit trees - lemon, olive, orange, mandarin, and other citrus.

Containers prevail, with "groupings" of different style and size planters, urns, jars and vases everywhere. Outdoor stairways, courtyards, entranceways are often lined with dozens of planted pots. Pergolas, gazebos and secluded nooks are accented with oil jars or large vases.

A very popular idea is to use a large oil jar or urn as a base for a table in a quiet sitting area.

Mediterranean style gardens can take advantage of unusable spaces, such as steep slopes, small yard areas, idle patios or terraces.

Winding paths or terrace stairways bordered with brilliant perennials and grasses are also popular elements. Other landscape favorites are roses, lavender, rosemary, and succulents, often potted.
