Mediterranean Backyard Landscaping Ideas. The trend in home and garden decor in the last few years has without a doubt been towards Italian/Tuscan themed areas. In large part, this is tied into the increasing recognition of artisan food production, wine, and the increased value placed on perceived quality in all areas of life.
In this article, we will look at what this means for the homeowner and give some practical tips on how you can furnish your outdoor living areas to create a contemporary entertaining space.
If you don’t have a large budget for renovating a good way to save money is to choose a small area that you can section off and complete, allowing you to enjoy it without spending a lot of money. To this end, consider using large potted plants, bamboo or reed screening to establish visual boundaries.
These elements – a rustic ground cover and some screening are really the building blocks of a great outdoor area. At this point, you can start to look at outdoor furnishing and other accessories. If you have somewhere sturdy to hang it, a hammock – while not strictly Mediterranean – is a lovely way to relax and enjoy your space on your own, and a glass of a nice red helps to complete this picture!
