Several collections of influential Dutch garden and landscape architects were added to the database TUiN (GARDEN database).
The work of several garden and landscape architects was recently added to the database TUiN. Designs and other documentation of the following garden and landscape architects were described:

The objects in the database differ in scale, date, style and nature. The following are some examples of the objects:
