7 of the world’s best gardens*
Gardens are one of the best creations on earth. In all the pollution that exists in the world, a little stroll in the garden will give you hope for a better world in the future and gives you hope that yes, our earth really does stand a chance of surviving and striving if enough trees are grown. Gardens centre you and serve as an escape from the day to day routine we live through.
Here are a few of the best gardens around the world that will give you the wow factor. They are massive goals when doing your garden clearance. Let’s start the list!
Monet’s Gardens, Giverny, France
Picture paradise and you get Monet’s Gardens. It’s truly exotic and enthralling. It’s not at all far from Paris and so if you ever happen to be travelling to Paris, visiting Monet’s Garden is a must. Monet’s Garden is divided into two parts – one being the flower garden and the other being a water garden.
Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens, Tokyo
Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens is one of the oldest gardens out there. It was built in 1629 by Mito Yorifusa. If you’re a huge fan of Japanese animatics that show gardens straight out of a portrait then Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens is one you should definitely visit at least once. This is really the dream when it comes to doing garden maintenance.
Volksgarten, Vienna, Austria
With over 3000 rose bushes cultivated by over 200 gardeners, it is one of the most infamous gardens. The roses are quite a sight giving beauty a definition to a whole new level.
Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden, Pattaya City, Thailand
This is one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Containing native botanical species of over 670 plants, it is quite the tourist resort. Hundreds of people visit Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden and take delight in seeing all those botanical species that voice the supremacy of the creators.
Gardens of Chateau de Villandry, Indre-et-Loire, France
This garden is divided into six terraces; where the uppermost terrace is a sun garden, the next two are water gardens, then an ornamental garden, and lastly the herb garden terrace. Each terrace serves the most premium plants, trees and floras. Its expanse is quite remarkable and you can never quite have enough of the gardens.
Keukenhof, Lisse, Netherlands
Keukenhof is one of the largest flower gardens in the world with flowers as far as the eye can see. Its name is translated as “the garden of the Europe” as it has around 6 million flower plants, unlike any other garden. I would want to meet the main gardener of Keukenhof. The most interesting thing about this garden is that they offer boat rides which is a great experience and means you can see even more.
Giardini Botanici Villa Taranto, Piedmont, Italy
Giardini Botanici Villa Taranto is one of the largest gardens in the world and is quite a sight for Italy lovers. The Italian style fountains and statues really give off a rich vibe which is enhanced by the large collection of tropical plants.
