MGS members in the Central Algarve have sent their photos of their new project.

“I’m finally sitting down and forwarding the pictures of our changed garden.

We have now been members of the Mediterranean Garden Society for about a year, which has inspired us to change our garden with traditional lawn (requiring lots of watering), into a waterwise Mediterranean garden. The project took place in October and took three weeks.

All the grass was removed and replaced with larger flowerbeds and gravel/sand. Approximately 350 new plants were planted all of them naturally very draught tolerant. So far we have saved a lot on the monthly waterbill (there has been a lot of help from above though!)

We are very pleased with the result both visually, economically and regarding maintenance.”
