The Simple Mediterranean Garden provides the essence of the informal or semi-formal Mediterranean gardens of Italy and Southern France with some of the classic low-water and easy-to-maintain plants from the Mediterranean area and similar climates.
Its an easy-to-combine palette of a tree, shrubs, perennials, and grasses, that provides a wide range of colors and the wonderful smells of lavender, rosemary, and catmint. If you are looking for a classic European cottage garden, while keeping things low water, or want to incorporate low hedges and formal elements with pops of looser color, the Simple Mediterranean Garden is a choice to consider.
This plant palette is available as an option for the Waterwise Community Center's Landscape Design Assistance Program. Visit cbwcd.org/desgin for more details.
