English garden

Quick Reference

Informal, asymmetrical, ‘natural’ type of landscape evolved in C18, associated with L. Brown, H. Repton, and others, and widely copied in Europe, where it was called jardinanglo-chinois because of its apparent haphazard design. It was associated with the Picturesque and Sharawadgi.
