Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of garden remains which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which of those scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.

A parallel Garden and Park Structures listing selection guide treats the selection of structures in designed landscapes for listing, while four selection guides discuss the criteria for the inclusion of designed landscapes on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest under the headings Rural Landscapes, Urban Landscapes, Institutional Landscapes, and Landscapes of Remembrance.
