Gardens as Art

Backyard & Porch Living from AlansKitchen.comGarden design is considered to be an art in most cultures, distinguished from gardening, which generally means garden maintenance. In Japan, Samurai and Zen monks were often required to build decorative gardens or practice related skills like flower arrangement known as ikebana.

In 18th century Europe, country estates were refashioned by landscape gardeners into formal gardens or landscaped parklands, such as at Versailles, France or Stowe, England. 

Today, landscape architects and garden designers continue to produce artistically creative designs for private garden spaces.
