The 18th-century phenomenon of the English Landscape Garden was so widespread that even today, when so much has been built over or otherwise changed, one is never far from an example throughout England. The book is structured so as to give the background to, and motivation for, creating the landscape garden; to summarise the chronology of its development; to chart the most significant writers and theorists; and to consider the range of the many forms it took. The book can be regarded as a companion to the volume already published by Historic England, The English Landscape Garden in Europe.
Michael Symes is an author, lecturer and garden historian. He specialises in 18th-century gardens in Britain and continental Europe.
