If we look away from the daily life to the nature landscapes, we will be able to see, how they have also been influenced by humans.
There are no truly virgin landscapes in Germany nor in Poland anymore. Even in the deepest forests and on the green overgrown riverbanks – man has left his footprints everywhere, fulfilling his basic needs: food, shelter or clothing.
At first, in the Baroque era, garden-art was limited by the strict laws of geometry, symmetry and colour harmony. Then, in the 19th Century, it was set free from those restrictions, to expose native dynamics of nature, complemented by the play of the viewing axes.
The following Polish-German project is a part of the INTERREG IV A Programme. Its goal is the thorough analysis and popularization of the subject. In the first step, the project aims to improve the condition of the three selected gardens, which in effect will help create a social network of experts and other involved parties.
