Dry gardens

We select native plants which are suited to the Mediterranean climate

We take account of the surrounding environment

Example:
- Nearby forests
- Neighbouring gardens
- Noting what works well in your particular garden

We are in tune with plant requirements

- Climate requirements
- Soil requirements (Pine trees used as an indicator: Aleppo pine for calcareous soil and Umbrella pine for siliceous soil
- Requirements based on orientation

Lawn alternatives

Advantages:
- Low-maintenance and less weeding
- Less water, artificial fertilisers and treatments required
- Easier to install
- Short-term savings
- Attractive and original

We plant suitable ground layers for small areas and those with moderate footfall. For larger areas we use minerals such as gravel, pebbles and flagging punctuated by perennials and small shrubs, or meadowland.

For larger areas, we recommend setting aside an area of dry grassland

Natural grassland can increase the secondary fauna in your garden (to protect against disease) as well as promoting wildflower growth.
We plant grassland which needs watering less frequently, with less overall maintenance (seeds sown at the beginning of the spring and autumn)
We can create or extend flowerbeds

We offer alternatives to single-species hedges

Advantages to planting multi-species hedges include:

- Preventing the spread of disease and pests
- Increasing useful fauna
- Windbreak effect: prevents dryness
- Attractive: Mixes flowers, leaves and various aromas, and without the “wall” effect of a single-species hedge
