Here are 6 beautiful gardens filmed by drones. These beautiful garden videos are from Washington, Rome, Netherlands, Singapore, Israel and Ireland. There are perhaps thousands of great gardens on this planet with Earth itself being the greatest.
Below is just a selection of best drone videos of gardens filmed at the moment. Over the coming years we will see plenty more.
There are lots of terrific uses for drones. When viewing these videos, you can see how drones greatly assist with surveying the progress of garden landscape projects.
Drones help the Landscape Gardener with the topographical features and aspects of design such as steep slopes, vistas, hills and outcrops etc. The aerial view also give tremendous feedback on the look and feel throughout the project. Over the next few years, I think drones will become very important to landscape gardeners.
Drones are a terrific tool for marketing and advertising of tourist and outdoor destinations such as gardens, hotel resorts, golf courses and lake fishing etc. You can see why. With the latest drones, you can create beautiful aerial videos using relatively inexpensive drones.
Lets take a look now at some beautiful gardens.

Beautiful Water Garden Of Tivoli
The Villa d’Este, in the town of Tivoli east of Rome, is one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe and is listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The villa was built in 1560 and was the vision of Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este. The villa is famous for its magnificent garden of grottoes, fountains, nymphs and water sculptures.
This drone video was taken in March 2014. If this video was taken today with the latest DJI Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 Pro, the Inspire 1, or Inspire 2 you would not have any fisheye distortion which we can see in this video. This is still a beautiful video. The gardens are a real treasure.
