Project Description:

The Huntington Library’s Japanese Garden originally opened in 1928. While it’s beauty was timeless, renovations were needed to bring it up to modern accessibility and sustainability standards. The Huntington enlisted BrightView’s help for the highly specialized work. In addition to bringing the garden into compliance with current ADA standards and installing modernized irrigation, the scope included restoration of the historic Japanese House and the addition of a 2-acre ceremonial tea garden. Despite the broad scope and intricate preservation, the project completed on-time and on budget. What’s more, the existing mature plant material was preserved, as well as several high-worth Japanese Black Pines.
