COMPLEMENTARY PLANTING

Patty Hawkley, our Garden Supervisor, is a master at creating stunning color and textural combinations throughout our many acres. You can do this too!

 

Olive trees will do well under-planted with some Mediterranean shrubs and ground covers. Grass lawns generally need too much water for an olive tree, but there are some ground covers that pair well with olives. When planting under an olive tree consider water needs and harvest accessibility. Do not plant your favorite, delicate shrub that will be crushed while you are picking olives.

 

Some good pairings include lavender, thyme, bunch grasses, oregano, and bulbs. Come visit us and get ideas.
