Garden Hall of Fame

As the premier landscaping company in Utah, we have an eye for quality work. We love working in beautifully designed gardens and then making sure our work looks perfect.

1. Butchart Gardens, British Columbia, Canada

Located just 13 miles away from the city of Victoria, the gardens provide a wonderful reason to go visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and visit the gardens while at it. Created in the year 1904 by Robert Butchart, a Portland cement maker the gardens have grown over the years into one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. The gardens are still in the Butchart family to this day, with the great-granddaughter of Robert Butchart as the owner and managing director.

2. Keukenhof Gardens, Netherlands

Keukenhof Gardens, also known as the Garden of Europe, is located in Lisse, the Netherlands. With over 7 million flower bulbs in a 32 acre area, the garden is the world’s largest flower garden. The garden traces its history to the 19th century when the Baron of Castle Keukenhof assigned a landscape designer to design the grounds.

3. The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Scotland

A private garden only open one day of the year, this garden is quite unique compared to the other gardens on the list. Instead of focusing on creating a beautiful atmosphere the garden is designed based on mathematics, and scientific processes. There are inspirations drawn from astronomy, mathematical formulas, and other scientific phenomena that make this garden an extraordinary landscape masterpiece. The gardens were designed by Charles Jencks an American theorist and critic who has written books on modern and postmodern architecture.

4. The Majorelle Garden, Moroco

While the Majorelle is the smallest of the gardens on the list, that does not diminish the wonderful landscaping that is displayed. Designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle the Moroccan garden took 40 long years to complete. The garden focuses on creating a wonderful atmosphere, and is more focused on being a work of art, than being a garden.

5. Gardens at the Versailles Palace, France

These gardens are the biggest of the gardens on this list. With over 977 acres of land the gardens are massive. Coincidentally, these gardens were built at the same time as the palace and took 40 years to complete as well. Because the land where the gardens are now used to be grasslands and marshes, dirt had to be brought in, to fill the land space. To this day the gardens remain a cultural icon for France, and is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

While we may not take on a 800 acre project that takes 40 years, as a landscaping company in Utah, we provide the highest quality of work with every job.
