These are the names of the most popular landscape and garden designers, who have taught us that it’s never too late to chase dreams.

Lancelot “Capability” Brown

The unique middle name came to be when he stated that an estate could have the ‘capability’ to improve tremendously with the right motivation and design. Brown’s work includes 170 British parks, especially in country houses and places such as Milton Abbey and Warwick Castle. Brown aimed to imitate the structure of nature and managed to inspire the modern trends in landscape designs with it. When he died in the year 1783, he was 67 years old, and had encouraged a future line of designers after him. Deemed as the greatest gardener of England, Brown was capable in every sense of the word.Warwick Castle Lancelot “Capability” Brown

When speaking of the names of the most popular landscape and garden designers, Nôtre’s name is mentioned for his successful work in esteemed gardens and aristocratic venues. This Paris-born genius is the man behind the Gardens of Versailles, which was dedicated to King Louis XIV. He established designs of the French style of gardens, and gave the idea of using fountains, water basins and avenues in garden management. Working as the royal gardener directly under the king, he was able to leave behind a glorious legacy which has inspired French designers and artists around the world. He was born 12 March 1613.André Le Nôtre

Born in the 19th century, Olmsted is known as the ‘Father of American Landscape Architecture’, which speaks volume of what he has achieved during his lifetime. Calvert Vaux, his partner at work, helped him to create American urban parks. This includes Central Park and New York’s Prospect Park. His firm belief in the fact that everybody should get to enjoy nature without any discrimination led to the idea of ‘public parks’ that is still followed today. Parkways that are interconnected with public places were also founded by this great man, and he laid down a number of rules that architects of recent times still follow.Centralpark
