It is an art to master the English landscape garden. As far back as the 17th century, the English landscape is a specific style that spread across Europe to France and beyond. This specific type of garden presented an idealized view of nature. It drew inspiration from paintings of landscapes by Claude Lorraine and Nicolas Poussin. The British still take their gardening and their flowers quite seriously!
