23. Mediterranean Garden

Plants that like it hot and dry are the focus for the Mediterranean Garden, where coarse grit has been used to improve the drainage of Barnsdale's heavy clay soil. The soil has been mounded to give important height variation and to enable the planting of varieties that like very sharp drainage at the top. The Mediterranean feel continues with pebbles and kiln-dried blue beech wood chips that are used to imitate a vibrant flowing stream running through the arid land.
