The most ancient form is forest gardening. They were fond of this in Ancient Egypt, in regions close to the river. People created a beautiful, visually attractive landscape. Most grandiose gardens appeared in the Middle Ages and during the Enlightenment. They decorated territories around imperial palaces that were the envy and pride of monarchs.
