Creating a Mediterranean environment in a UK setting can be a big ask, particularly when it comes to the vast differences in climate.
However, that’s not to say it’s an impossible task. In fact, with a few strategic choices and deliberate additions, your back garden could easily become a dead ringer for a Spanish villa.
Here are a few simple changes that can truly transform your outdoor space into the Mediterranean garden you’ve always dreamed of.
One of the most effective ways to provide your garden with a genuine taste of the Med is to take a leaf out of their book…quite literally.
Incorporating plants and greenery that are native to Mediterranean countries can instantly give your faux-Med landscape and air of visual credibility.
The RHS website has a whole list of Mediterranean garden plants you can easily add to your outdoor space to create a truly authentic looking continental ambience.
Speaking of plants, strategic placement of plant pots in and around your garden is an effortless way to add a bona fide Mediterranean flavour to your outside space.
Terra cotta pots are a must-have for anyone looking to replicate the foreign vibe at home. Fill with your favourite Med flowers and vegetation for a subtle yet striking addition that really makes a difference.
Where possible, opt for Clay pots with a wide base where possible. While we can replicate the Mediterranean appeal, we have no bearing over the weather; wide-base pots will stand a better chance of survival in windy UK weather conditions.
Light-coloured tiles are a fantastic flooring option for anyone looking to create a warming Mediterranean feel in their back garden.
Sunny creams and subtle yellows all have a distinctive overseas flair to them, particularly when the skies provide the climate to match.
If you’re really looking to invest in your Med-look garden, appropriate tiling is the ultimate ace up the sleeve.
Perhaps one of the best ways to create a truly authentic Mediterranean landscape in your outdoor space is to create an outdoor seating area.
Opting for a veranda can instantly transform your garden area, creating the feeling of stepping into another country every time you step out of your back door.
Accessorise with garden furniture and climbing plants that reach up the pillars of your veranda can truly cap off a wonderful Mediterranean setting in the most authentic way possible.
