Botanical Garden of the Piedmont

Project Location: Charlottesville, VA

Client: Botanical Garden of the Piedmont

Located on 8.5 acres, the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont will be a resilient place of botanical discovery. The conceptual design makes the most of the site’s natural features and is defined by a series of stepped gardens and woodland walks.  A diverse set of experiences from meadows, pine groves, a waterfall, and mushroom gardens encourage visitors to explore and engage the natural world.  An amphitheater and event space provide ample opportunity to hold both public and private, revenue-generating events. Once complete, the garden will highlight the evolving definition of native plant materials while weaving sculptural experiences into this modern-day botanical garden.
