Project Description: 

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. 

Landscape Development:

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.
