"Whately (1728-1772) en tant que secrétaire de Lord Grenville, chancelier de l'Echiquier, eut la possibilité de fréquenter la fine fleur de l'aristocratie et par là même ses jardins. Son ouvrage adopte une approche qui s'apparente à celle d'un artiste : construisant son jardin comme un peintre une œuvre, il dessine une structure, des formes ; il est attentif aux couleurs, cherche à les harmoniser en fonction des saisons, soucieux d'effacer ce qui pourrait paraître convenu, artificiel ; on ne trouve plus chez lui cette volonté de dominer le paysage, qu'on sentait chez ses devanciers, mais il préfère utiliser les accidents du terrain, tous les éléments de la nature, les mettre en valeur, les souligner, les corriger parfois. Pour lui, la nature devient spectacle, elle est l'idéal devenu visible, elle est consolatrice parce qu'elle demeure indifférente aux vanités. Whately fut, comme ses contemporains, un fervent lecteur d'Horace, pour qui le jardin est un espace clos où se concentre et s'exprime le bonheur domestique. L'Angleterre alors se passionnait tant pour les jardins irréguliers que pour l'architecture gothique, voyant en eux l'image et le symbole de l'indépendance, le refus du pouvoir absolu ; la liberté faisait place au fatum. Le jardin est pour Whately une œuvre de séduction, qui non seulement implique la volonté de plaire, mais revendique sa place dans le monde. Ce pouvait aussi être une réponse aux questionnements métaphysiques, la possible fusion avec la nature permettant d'éviter la question de la finalité, devenue incertaine. La démarche de Whately préfigure celle de Werther. La lecture de L'Art de former les jardins modernes pourra être d'un grand profit tant pour ceux qui ont à créer des jardins, que pour les amateurs qui veulent comprendre comment s'ordonne un jardin irrégulier
