Value determination of water systems in historic gardens as the foundation of garden art works

Lyuda Ryban


The value of water systems in Ukrainian historic gardens and parks (founded in the 17th–19th centuries), which are formed on the natural beds of rivers and creeks, is disclosed on the example of their general planning structure and composite construction. The main principles of garden art works in these parks had a strong influence on the methodology of planning contemporary green areas, particularly in and around the “energy independence” of water systems. The modern trend of the integrated approach in architectural-landscape organization of streamside territories are shown in the author’s projects proposals.
