Ancient and Old Olive Trees for a thoroughly modern feel
Although olive trees can be extremely old or even ancient, they never go out of fashion! I believe this is down to the ethereal beauty and "personality" of each tree. They seem to work beautifully with whatever surroundings they have, and enhance any space from a historic mansion house to a brand new build in suburbia.
Here are a few Olive Plantings that we've worked with:
A brand new external wall to a housing development needed "softening" so the planting of olive trees along the wall enhanced the colouring of the brick, with that beautiful silvery olive leaf.
Old olive trees come to English parklands
Ancient English parklands could be seen from the manor house windows, but closer up the owner wanted a more "modern, Mediterranean feel" to his immediate gardens. The planting of very gnarly olive trees brought the two seemingly disparate views together beautifully, as the very age of the olive trees looked totally in keeping with the historic setting, despite being obviously Mediterranean.
An alternative to the locally-favoured palm tree was sought by a home owner in the English Riviera. She chose to plant the front garden with Olive Trees and fig trees, which still gave the feeling of the Med, without yet another ubiquitous palm.
Use smaller, younger olive trees for flexibility
Smaller olive trees look excellent in pots and can often be moved from place to place (depending on the size of the pot!) so these can add an air of tranquillity to even the most modern setting, and are quite perfect on a patio or city balcony.
