Updates on Reynolda's Landscape Restoration Project

Despite some delays due to winter weather and rain in February, progress continues! The landscape project is plowing along with major work being completed on the flagstone paving in the Forecourt, and the sunken garden restoration begining. As you make plans to visit in the coming weeks, please be mindful of fencing around the work areas and follow the temporary pathways created to the Museum entrance.

Work crews removed soil to create more definition in the framework of the sunken garden. Smaller boxwoods will be planted along the perimeter.

Based on historically sensitive plans, new plant material is arriving daily, and azalea, rhododendron, and hydrangea are being planted on the west side of the house.
