Slow down in the perfect sunshine garden. Mediterranean gardens are designed to be sociable spaces that reflect the relaxed pace of life in countries where siestas are mandatory. Creating the Mediterranean look at home is easier than you might think with fuss-free plants and low maintenance paving or patios. These cosy and continental spaces are a delight for the senses with aromatic herbs, dappled sun, splashes of vibrant colour, burbling water features and warm terracotta tones.
