What is an English garden?Until the 18th century, the prevailing garden art was characterized by austerity. Geometric axes, clear lines and ornaments were its hallmarks.Then, from about 1720, a new style of garden emerged in England. Gardens in this style were intended to delight the visitor's eye as "walkable landscape paintings." Winding paths, individual groups of trees, ponds and lakes as well as smaller structures such as pagodas, temples or grottos were typical. Targeted garden planning was intended to create the greatest possible naturalness.Text:
