Garden type: Mediterranean Garden

We can say there are two types of Mediterranean gardens: Formal and Informal.

The formal Mediterranean gardens feature water and stone, often with clipped hedges and species as cypresses. There is a clear moorish influence as seen in the courtyards of Spain and south Italy.

Informal gardens feature gravel, with plants displayed in groups or masses. The look is inspired in the gardens of Portugal, Spain and south of France and Italy. Olives, vines, citrus fruits, lavender and rosemary are plants for this type of gardens.
