Chinese Gardens at The Huntington Library
The Garden of Flowing Fragrance Chinese Garden at the world-renowned Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Garden is the largest Chinese garden to be built outside China.
Brought to life by BrightView in collaboration with Suzhou Garden Development Company, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance spans over 12 acres. The first phase of the project consisted of 3.5-acres of a lake, waterfall, stream, and five bridges. The Summer Garden pavilions dwell in the remaining acreage where a teahouse, tea shop, and many intricately covered walkways were also constructed by the BrightView-led multi-cultural team. The project utilized a team of Mandarin-speaking Chinese stonemasons and artisans, and a tri-lingual crew of Mandarin, Spanish and English speakers to build and landscape the garden.
