Mediterranean Landscaping Style
When people hear the word Mediterranean, they often think of gyros, stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad and hummus. Not us, though! Well, maybe a little, but most of the time we think of the beautiful landscaping design that comes from the Mediterranean. Today, Red Valley Landscape wraps up the landscaping style from around the world blog series with a blog about Oklahoma landscape design- Mediterranean style.
Mediterranean landscaping style is unique since it is collectively inspired by several cultures from around the world like the French, Spanish, Turks, Greeks and Moroccans. It often mocks the natural beauty found in those regions of the world with colors of blue, green, burnt orange, yellow and other bright colors along with earthy tones.
Stone is essential for Mediterranean landscaping design, also. When gravel gardens, stone walkways, terra cotta and rustic limestone are paired together, spaces instantly are transformed into something more rustic, but also elegant and luxurious. You don’t have to be located in the Mediterranean to achieve this look. No job is impossible for Red Valley Landscape’s team of design consultants. We do stonework & masonry as well as landscape design with a wide selection of plants.
One of our favorite Mediterranean looks is the hillside terrace or courtyard. This space for Oklahoma outdoor living is achieved by building a pergola or arbor to sit on the side of a small hill or inclined space before adding stone boulders, stone steps, shrubbery and pops of colored flowers. Some different types of shrubbery Red Valley Landscape suggests to achieve this look include Grey Cotoneaster, Variegated Privet, or Boxleaf Euonymus. For color, Carolina Jasmine, Russian Sage and Knockout Roses look great in this set up.
Another impressive Mediterranean look can be achieved by simply adding some stonework and accessories around a swimming pool. The stonework needs to be spaced enough where grass is visible between each stone. Accessories such as ceramic pots, hanging baskets and fountains finish this look off perfectly.
