Note: the above classification showing the evolution of garden design styles began with a set of hand-drawing diagrams published in a book on English garden design history and styles since 1650 (which is available on the Gardenvisit.com website, here). It has been modified and extended by 2 sets of diagrams published in books by Tom Turner (published by Routledge) on Asian gardens (2011), European Gardens (2011) and British Gardens (2013). The charts published in these books can he seen here Asian gardens & European & American gardens. See page on garden history and garden music. The art of garden design in the Americas also draws upon the history of garden making over 5 millennia.
