Many sources say that the landscape style appeared in the XVIII century in England. According to history, the English naturalists-naturalists created new cultural trends from the East, which ultimately affected the literature and painting of the country. It turns out that there was a major cultural explosion, which led to the emergence of new views on the world of landscape design.
Thus, the landscape style park will be not so much the fruit of interconnected ideas from the East, but an original phenomenon of English culture, which embodied the idea of the naturalness and beauty of the world and the people who created it, of course.
The landscape garden itself presupposes a free and natural arrangement of various landscape elements. Here you can see straightness, and correctness and symmetry are excluded. The main sign of landscape landscape style is the absence of any hints of its man-made origin.
Often it can be used, albeit somewhat chaotic, but at the same time a carefully thought-out arrangement of the main parts and elements. An obligatory sign of this direction is the uneven terrain with ravines and hills, which can be not only artificial, but also natural. Often there are also ponds of irregular shapes.
Compositions here are usually created so that in the process of moving along the paths a person will constantly come across somewhat hidden compositions in the field of view - for example, behind each curve of the path he should get new impressions and make sure that the decisions related to the art of creating a landscape landscape are unexpected.
Of course, and harmony should be present in this case - this is a kind of indicator completeness of the landscape. Paths that go along the site should have a tortuous shape, but at the same time their turns should in no case be sharp. As the material from which these paths are created, one must use improvised means donated by nature or imitating it. It can be said very well that there is some similarity with the well-known Feng Shui doctrine - on the basis of it, the paths that smoothly transition to other directions should become excellent conductors for positive Chi energy, which ensures a harmonious state of a person, creating him in a similar way successful interaction with the environment.
And, it should be noted that the smoothness and tortuosity of the lines should be in all forms of the landscape style park - in the original form of trees, in a beautiful natural stone and even the roofs of houses adjacent to the park should take part in this ensemble.
Of course, in the landscape style garden it is difficult to underestimate the role of all kinds of water bodies - ponds, streams, small waterfalls or even an artificial swamp. The most important thing here is that they look as natural as possible.
In the process of choosing plants for planting, it is necessary to use exactly those species that are natural for a particular climatic zone, that is, for the area where the personal plot is located. Only here it should be borne in mind that in order to give any "overseas" color it is important to plant exactly those plants that are characteristic of this part of the world. This, as you know, can be very difficult, especially for central Russia, therefore it is important to keep this in mind.
As for the examples of landscape style, among them the old English estates of past centuries clearly stand out. In the territory of the countries of the former CIS, some Crimean parks can be noted, the style of which was actually borrowed from the British at one time.
