The Greek and Roman cultures were the first known to create gardens for entertaining and enjoyment instead of growing fruits and vegetables for eating. The area is usually an enclosed area, surrounded by walls, or large hedges. Roman gardeners often use large sculptures, often of Greek or Roman Gods, as a centerpiece. Blue and white are popular colors in the Greek culture; you'll often find that extends to the garden with elaborate tile designs in a patio area or walkway. You might also find blue and white decorated pots. You'll also find olive and wine themes in both cultures; olive trees might be planted along a wall or fence; and you might find olive and wine designs in pottery or furniture.
