This Mediterranean style of garden was chosen because of the family’s links to that part of the world.
The terrace provides space for a table that can seat 12. Herbs are planted in the bed under the kitchen window. A raised bed topped with tiles allows for further seating. The raised bed is well drained creating drier conditions for Mediterranean plants. Trellising placed around the garden hides the different types of fencing and provides a backdrop for scented climbers such as jasmine.
Citrus and olive trees planted in pots can be moved around the garden.
