What is the most expensive garden in the world?


CREATED: May 13, 2010

It’s true that owning and tending to a garden can certainly add up throughout the spring and summer months. But you’d still have to buy a whole lot of fertilizer and blooms to have your garden compete for the most expensive garden in the world. That garden belongs in Wes Sussex, and it just sold for a measly five million pounds, or $7.62 million USD.

The gardens are known in Wes Sussex as the Leonardslee Garden, and until 2010, it was a garden for the public to enjoy. Yes, anyone could walk among the 225 acre property, enjoying the many waterfalls, lake, rhododendrons, magnolias, unique one of a kind trees, and many more. And just how do you control the weed population in a garden of that size? With wallabies of course! And this garden has over forty of them, chomping at all the pesky unwanted greens.

The Loder family was the original family to own the garden, as well as the estate that went with it. The original owner was Sir Edmund Loder, and he bought the land in 1889. The manor was sold in the 1980s and Robin Loder sold the garden in 2010 to an anonymous buyer for the princely sum or five million pounds. That same buyer is now also said to be looking at the manor, which once again is back up for sale and has a price tag of 2.75 million pounds, or $4.2 million USD.
