To be high on a hilltop overlooking the Tuscan hills; that is the life! This patio incorporates the elements of Tuscan style with the use of large ocher planter urns, which echo the farmhouses on the rolling Tuscany hills. Place urns potted with plants and flowers into a grouping on a gravel bed to create an easy care garden.

Patio tables and chairs are traditionally wood or wrought iron. Simplicity and charm is the way to go when creating your outdoor living area. Include elements of wrought iron, wood or wicker for your furnishings and planters cascading with flowers.

A water fountain is traditionally the focal point of a Patio in Tuscany, while tall, elegant dark green cypress trees epitomize the Tuscan landscape. If you're planning on building a pond or natural swimming pool along your Tuscan patio, then consider adding this Tuscan feature.

Tuscan Resort in the Hills of Tuscany

There's nothing quite like Tuscan themed patios that evoke romance and the warmth of the Tuscan sun. The patio embraces the natural elements of stone and wood in their rustic forms and the earthy colors of the Tuscan farms.

Wrought iron dining furniture is the traditional outdoor dining décor and the use of large rustic terracotta urns make their Tuscan statement all the more enchanting. A natural, flat stone, typically flagstone is the stone of choice.

Tuscany is situated in the western part of Italy. It is a popular destination and is noted for its unique landscape of cypress trees, olive groves, vineyards, wine cellars, including some of Europe's best wineries, olive mills, and its cheese and honey producers.

Use natural elements such as stone, mosaic tile, wood, terra cotta, water, trees and flowers Tuscan-style. Tuscan themes should have a romantic, yet inviting and laid back feeling.

Tuscan Style Garden - Plants for a Tuscan Style Patio

The flowers, herbs and trees of Tuscany that you might find around a patio in Tuscany would be: climbing roses and grapevines, Jasmine, Passion Flower, Lavender and Wisteria Vines.

Steps and windows are almost always decorated with potted geraniums of pink and coral. Herbs you might find growing in sun-drenched urns or the garden would be rosemary, sage and thyme.

Trees you will find in Tuscany are: Apple, fig, lemon, plum, apricot, pear, quince, almond, persimmons and olive trees. Tuscany is noted for its rolling vineyards and olive groves. Of course, don't forget the elegant Cypress Trees!
