ABSTRACT



This paper describes the most often found effects of the drainage system degradation or alteration in the Lower Silesian palace and mansion parks set up in fertile habitats. Based on an example of the landscape setting in Krˇlikowice, the research results on the issue are discussed and the proposed concepts of its restoration are presented. The discussion makes references to classical preservation models for restoration of garden art objects, identifying the needs for more research and studies and for the application of ecological principles to shaping vegetation settings which have undergone transformations as a result of changes in water conditions, as is the case with the Lower Silesian parks.

Key words: parks, restoration, drainage system, rural landscape .
