The Q&A Archives: Tuscany Terrace Dimensions

Question: Hi,
On the website, under the heading "Planting Projects" I found a design that the folks at Sunset tell me came from you. It's called "Tuscany Inspired Terrace." The plants in it are 4 Compact Gold Coin Daisy, 3 Lavender Cotton plants, 2 French Lavender plants, 2 Tuscan Blue Rosemary, 2 Brilliancy Rock Rose, and 3 Little Ollie plants. What is missing are the dimensions of the bed needed for this project. Could you give me the size, please? Also, what would be some additional Mediterranean plants with similar water/light needs that I could add if I have more space?
