About the Event

'Thomas White - running an 18th-century landscaping business' - Louise Wickham, Leader, Yorkshire Gardens Trust Research and Recording Group, author of Gardens in History: A Political Perspective (Windgather Press, 2012) and (with Deborah Turnbull) Thomas White (c1736-1811): Redesigning the Northern British Landscape (Windgather Press, 2022).

Thomas White (c1736-1811) was a noted landscape designer, tree planter and arboriculturalist who worked on at least 77 sites across northern England and Scotland over a 40-year career. Many of his beautiful improvement plans survive, which is one of the main sources of information about his work. This lecture will focus on how he turned these plans into reality. It will examine how he met clients and secured the commissions from them, as well as successfully managing the implementation by employing the appropriate workforce and organising the supply of plants and other materials.
