A residential landscape crafted by landscape gardeners, landscape architects, garden designers, horticulturists, and amateur gardeners. Private residential gardens have been created from the early colonial period onward. These residential gardens may be intimate in scale or extend to hundreds of acres. Estate designs typically have been composed of numerous smaller landscape spaces and multiple architectural elements. Responding to geographic locale, environmental conditions, landscape features, neighborhood context, existing architecture, and prevailing styles, an individual garden’s design will vary widely and express the vision of both the designer and owner.
