In contrast, as long as you have added plenty of gravel to the soil or compost in pots, and there is good drainage, very little additional work is needed.
This is because plants suited for a Mediterranean garden design are not only mostly evergreen, for all year round delight, but they have also adapted to poor soils, and do not need arduous care and constant feeding.
In fact, herbs are at their most flavoursome and aromatic in under nourished soils.
Mediterranean planting and design styles are excellent for balcony, terrace and roof garden themes because they are particularly suited to the extreme condtions of exposure experienced in these settings.
As well as creating a contemporary design style, they are the best suited plants, and provide an all year round biophilic green space, with least maintenance
We supply quality Mediterranean, exotic and tropical plants from our own grown stock, as well as handpicked specimens from premier European nurseries, including citrus and Mediterranean stocks direct from Tuscany and naturalised in the UK.
With our botanical design knowledge, we provide vibrant new choices of flow of colour and form or instill Zen tranquility.
The other Mediterranean style being that of the Italian Renaissance, which emphasis balance and proportion.
Classically represented by formal features, such statuary, parterre planting, topiary, fountains and a inspirational range of evergreen plants, you can create dramatic and evocative effects.
In our design work, we can blend these two styles to suit your lifestyle aspirations to create an all year alfresco theme.
