Gardens of eighteenth-century England
this page you will find contemporary views of many English houses
and gardens built during the eighteenth century. Most of them
tended to the formal park style, but many have dense shrubberies
close to the house, and a few seem to have preferred the dishevelled
and overgrown look. Some of the wealthier house owners managed
to have some of the new exotic trees growing, many have a water
feature (river, rivulets, streams lakes, or at least a hopeful
puddle or two), and most have sheep or cattle grazing the extensive
