Well, we all have our own understanding on gardens, but there are gardens in the world that seem unfathomable and in this article, we are going to talk about such gardens.
Here are five incredible gardens across the world that you should definitely check out:
1. Gardens of Versailles, France
France is home to rich gardens, but none is as exquisite as Gardens of Versailles.
The Gardens of Versailles were created by Andre Le Notre for Louis XIV and still stands the test of time as one of the most famous gardens in the world.
The gardens cover about 2000 acres of land area and bloom with pretty flower beds, carefully manicured lawns, incredible sculptures and magnificent fountains.
While Gardens of Versailles is a symbol of beauty, they are very difficult to maintain because of their huge size and want of water supply.
2. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Scotland
The name in itself speaks volumes about the richness and mysteriously relaxing environment this garden has to offer.
The Garden of Cosmic Speculation is as unique as it sounds—its founders, Charles Jencks and Maggie Keswick, were inspired by the enigmatic combination of maths and science and incorporated the same into the design of the garden.
The garden focuses on shapes, thought-stirring designs, and sculptures. What makes this garden more interesting is the fact it opens for a public visit only on one day so if you are planning to visit the garden, plan way ahead.
3. Yuyuan Garden, China
One of the oldest gardens surviving today, Yuyuan Garden brims with Chinese history and culture. It is characterized by traditional stone and rock areas, sacred water features, dragon sculptures, and whatnot.

If you ever plan a trip to China, do not skip Yuyuan!
4. Butchart Gardens, Canada
