5 Greatest Gardens Of All Time

History has proven itself that gardening is not all about the only source for growing food but an outlet to show off skills, artistic expression, creativity, and something that can be passed on through one generation up to the next. Here is a list of the most inspiring gardens of all time.

1.The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. This was also known as The Hanging Gardens of Semiramis located in Al Hillah, Iraq (formerly Babylon). King Nebuchadnezzar, around 600 BC created these hanging gardens to delight his beloved wife Amytis, Princess of Persia. Unfortunately, the garden was destroyed by numerous earthquakes after second century BC.

2.The Levens Hall Gardens. Located in Cumbria, UK. This was considered by the experts today to be the oldest and prettiest garden topiary around the world.

3.The Yuyuan Garden in China. Others said this was made 400 years ago but due to damaged caused by civil wars, local rich Chinese people rebuilt and recovered it in 1961.

4.The Garden of Versailles. Located in France. This was made for Louis XIV. The designer is Andre Le Notre.

5.The Shalimar Garden. A Persian inspired garden built in 1641 A.D. (1051 A.H.) by Emperor Shah Jahan in Lahore, Pakistan.

Too bad we don’t have photos left for The Garden of Eden but these are still all phenomenal and something all gardeners can be proud of.
