The Manor Grounds

The Manor

The manor grounds show two examples of an ideal garden.

The formal, French garden style is evident in the long panoramic sight lines of the manor’s surroundings and in the allée. Strict symmetry with pruned hedges is characteristic of this style.

The English landscape garden with soft, winding paths, where the outhouse and gazebo are situated, is a style that came to Sweden at the end of the 1700s. English landscape gardens were supposed to look ‘natural’, but in reality were carefully planned.
