The Eighteenth Century: This was an age that gave rise to the landscape garden, which began to appear on a scale that had never been seen before. To witness this gardening revolution, Monty travels to Croome Court, Rousham, and Stanage Park, discovering how these great landscapes were created: from the Georgian clay recipe that transformed garden sculpture to the secrets of mowing with a scythe.
