THE ARTS SOCIETY WOLVERHAMPTON

MONDAY 8 JULY 2019
Up the Garden Path

All gardening is concerned with the control of nature, but ideas on how this is to be and what the end result should be, have gone through many changes. Gardens as places of inspiration and recreation have been cultivated in towns, as excavations of urban Roman sites have revealed, but particularly in the country where estate owners have vied with each other to follow the latest fashions dictated by masters such as Capability Brown, Humphrey Repton, Gertrude Jekyll and Piet Oudolf. Planting may be more, or less, formal and designs can include statues, fountains, temples and grottoes.
