Mediterranean-style garden

Get the look with this easy garden design project
pause
Picture a Mediterranean courtyard and you’re likely to imagine ochre walls, a vine-covered pergola and lots of terracotta. Add shots of colour from geraniums and glazed pots, and you’ve got an intimate outdoor entertaining space.

Landscaping


Choose mid-stoned paving for a sun-bleached look, walls painted in soft terracotta, pergolas, arches, borders for planting Mediterranean herbs, chillis, olives and splashes of bright colour.

Furniture


Go for sturdy, rustic wooden table and benches, or, for a more upmarket treatment, decorative cast iron.

Ornamentation


Clay chimenea, terracotta urn.

Planters


Mosaic, blue-glazed Malay ceramics, square, scroll-top or Tuscany terracotta pots.

Plants


Cytisus, lavender, geraniums, vines, olive trees, chillis, peppers, rosemary, yucca, palms.
