Episode

This Irish garden has witnessed four centuries of history. Initially designed for the Wingfield family in the eighteenth century, the grounds of Powerscourt were the creation of the English architect and landscape designer Daniel Robertson. 

Although Powerscourt is still privately owned, the Irish are justly proud of this historic garden with its splendid trees and statues, which incorporates superb panoramic views of the  landscape. Until the nineteenth century, with the exception of the Italian garden, the grounds contained very few trees. But the seventh Viscount of Powerscourt wanted to have wooded grounds. His additions include an outstanding arboretum and an imposing redwood walk that stretches as far as the estate boundary.
