WALERZAK, M. T., D. SWIERK, M. KRZYZANIAK and P. URBANSKI, 2015. A method of analysis and valorisation of historic green space arrangements in rural areas in Poland. Bulg. J. Agric. Sci., 21: 507–516
The development of one, complex method of analysis and valuation of garden estates is particularly important for the revalorisation and conservation of historic gardens, which are part of the European cultural heritage. The task is even more significant in view of the fact that many currently applied methods assessing the state of preservation of historic green space arrangements do not enable their complex valorisation and conservation. The aim of the study was to create a tabular method of analysis and valorisation of historic values in historic green space arrangements and to draw the attention of the users of those estates to the high value of historic gardens to the cultural landscape and to the regional and national identity.
The study was conducted on 14 historic green space establishments, which differed in their state of preservation. The estates under analysis were assessed by means of the suggested, innovative method of analysis and valorisation of historic values in historic green space arrangements. The results of the assessment were statistically analysed. As a result four CVA models were created.
Most of the estates under investigation were classified as estates of medium value and minimal degradation, which should be revalorised in consequence. The method suggested in the research proved to be very useful both in field and study work on the revalorisation of historic green space arrangements.
