The Queen's Garden

You can see the formal layout of the garden edges. Formal gardens went out of fashion in the mid to late 18th century England. The formal garden, derived from French ideas, surrendered to the "English" garden, which runs to much more natural look. At the time, it was heavily dependent on North American plants, including that amazing and expensive exotic, juniperius virginiana, commonly called the Eastern Red Cedar.
