Note: the above classification of styles was drawn in 2002 and differs from the classification made in 1997 in that the latter gives less attention to ancient gardens and more to the differences between the baroque style as it affected France, Holland and England. The 1997 version is retained for gardens in the British Isles because it gives additional detail on post-1700 gardens in this region. An revised and extended set of diagrams was published in Garden History - philosophy and design (2005)
