Gardens and cemeteries

The UK is world renowned for its historic designed gardens and cemeteries. Here's how our funding can help look after them.

Our funding could:

  • help conserve historic structures or recreate lost features
  • help historic gardens improve their biodiversity
  • restore historic cemeteries including repairing listed monuments and helping people to appreciate their history
  • help celebrate and raise awareness of garden designers
  • provide training and apprenticeships in heritage horticultural skills
  • help people to identify, record and learn about historic gardens

What we have funded so far
