With milder winters and warmer summers, many of us wish to re-create a more Mediterranean feel in our gardens in the UK. Correctly chosen hard landscaping materials, along with clever plant choices can result in a garden with its roots firmly planted in sunnier shores.
This wonderful large entertaining terrace in Sussex uses a rich mix of hard landscaping materials including porcelain, Indian sandstone, loose gravel and pebble mesh border detail. These add interest to the area through texture changes underfoot, and provide visual stimulation in the ground plane. The patio area is softened through the inclusion of flower beds including drought tolerant planting from a Mediterranean palette, such as Ballota, Ficus, Salvias, Iris, Cistus and Heliantheum. You are truly transported to exotic and warmer shores when enjoying this special space.
