Il Pergolato di Rosa – Roses

Il Pergolato di Rosa has emerged from its life as a cricket pitch to a Rose Pergola that looks like it was meant to be.

We covered the cricket pitch with crazy tiles – then built the pergola – a simple design but with a solid feel. Also the options of what to do with all that concrete were limited!


There is a meandering path down that leads past the artichokes with their purple seed heads, the lambs ears providing silver foliage and then to the geraniums with as many roses as we can fit in.

And then we added some more Mary Lou Pittard tiles – some seating, another bird house, an old gate, artichokes AND some more roses.
