Restoring a historic garden from decay not only preserves the rich tapestry of our heritage but also reclaims a living canvas where the past and nature harmonize.

Greenwood Gardens is a historic site that welcomes the public. The 28-acre estate features Italianate garden terraces, grottos, fountains and statuary, meandering moss covered paths, allées of London plane and spruce trees.

The Resurrection of a Garden Jewel

RAS provided complete oversight of the garden renovation that marked the transition from private estate to public garden. Historic features were restored and reconstructed. The scope of work was extensive and included a new entrance drive and visitor parking, reconstruction of original terraces and pergolas, site lighting, stormwater management system, conservation to existing statuary, planting design, complete reconstruction of existing garden pools and fountains.

“Working with RAS Landscape Architects was a fantastic experience. Thank you once again for your hard work and dedication. You are a truly exceptional team of professionals, and we are lucky to have had the opportunity to work with you.”
