Objective: To be able to describe the key designers and elements of colonial American garden design

Level: Beginner to advanced 

Prerequisite: None


When Europeans first began colonizing North America, they brought gardening traditions from their homeland with them. Explore how these cultural styles were modified to fit the differences in the landscapes of North America by selecting different plants or blending elements to produce practical or pleasurable gardens. Compare the designs from different regions to see how some of these elements and values are still present in our gardens today.
