How to Create a Mediterranean Garden

How to Create a Mediterranean Garden

Ibiza enjoys an amazing 360 days of sunshine a year, making it one of the most pleasant places in Europe to live. And while, in late September, the rest of Europe is already going towards the autumn mood, here on the island we are still enjoying beautiful warmer days – it’s all about enjoying the outdoors for as long and as much as possible.

On a sunny day, there is nothing better than dining alfresco with friends and family, get the last dose of sunshine before the winter weather comes looming and outdoor dining time is over. Mediterranean-style gardens are the best type for entertaining. Here we’ve rounded up what you should incorporate in your garden to achieve that laid-back Mediterranean feel:

 

Garden Seating

Create a sensory seating area

Seating tends to be informal in Mediterranean gardens. Sometimes even rocks and wooden pieces work in large spaces. Growing herbs near the seating area is a good option if you want to infuse the area with a delicate aroma – plus they are also handy to have for the barbecue! Rosemary, thyme, lavender, bay laurel and sage are all herbs that do very well in the Ibiza climate.

 

Lengthen your days with light and shade

Many beautiful gardens in Ibiza come with big trees like Sabina, Carob and Olive which are perfect sun protectors as with their dense foliage don’t let the rays shine through. If you don’t have natural shade, make sure to create one – is the ideal solution to escape from those hot sunny days!

Lighting plays also a big part in a Mediterranean garden because you’ll spend a lot of time outside and probably eat very late. Put in place a simple lighting scheme – or place lanterns around.They add an enchanting atmosphere and make your days become longer.

 

Cactus Garden

Don’t forget cacti and succulents

Cacti and succulents are often a feature of Mediterranean gardens. They are great because they do not require a lot of maintenance and are easy to grow, which is true of succulents in particular! Plant them in all the little cracks in your stone and rockwork and they will run riot. A strip of them placed in the gravel gap between your paving and house will soften lines.
