The 18th-century English landscape garden, with its seemingly natural appearance, was a revolution in garden design and left a legacy that can still be seen in surviving gardens and parks today. Symes traces the origins and evolution of the landscape garden throughout the 18th century; discusses its place in contemporary politics, philosophy and culture; and surveys the variety of styles through the works of major designers, from William Kent and the ‘pictorial garden’ to Humphrey Repton and the Picturesque.
