Nature and creativity

When gardens go wild, the results can be simply stunning.

The following six contemporary spaces prove that not all public gardens follow the conventional landscape of manicured flower beds, closely mowed lawns and well-pruned trees. Some have plants and trees that have never met pruning sheers, and others showcase human-made art alongside their greenery. 

As with all gardens, these six showcase beautiful plant life, but what's unique is their ability to capture visitors' attention with their off-the-cuff and creative designs.
