    The English garden, also called English landscape park, is a style of Landscape garden which emerged in England in the early 18th century, and spread across Europe, replacing the more formal, symmetrical Garden à la française of the 17th century as the principal gardening style of Europe.[1] The English garden presented an idealized view of nature.

Stourhead,Wiltshire 'A living work of art' is how Stourhead was described when it opened in the 1750s. Designed by Henry Hoare II as a series of carefully constructed views,like scenes from a landscape painting & at the forefront of the 18th-century English landscape movement.The garden was inspired by Dutch landscape paintings of the 16th & 17th centuries.These paintings did not capture reality but represented an ideal. Estate owners,no longer content to just hanging these ideals on the wall.
