The Garden of Flowing Fragrance, located at The Huntington Library, Art Collection and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, Calif., will soon be completed and open to the public.

Also known as the Liu Fang Yuan Garden, this part of the Huntington campus will be one of the largest Chinese-style gardens in the world. The attraction is scheduled to open in May 2020. Designed to promote the rich traditions of Chinese culture, the project nearly quadruples the garden’s size.  

BrightView has been working on this project for the last 10 years. Snyder Langston, general contractor for the final phase of the expansion, partnered with BrightView on this aspect of the garden, which includes a number of structures, an art gallery, and a café.

Combining a workforce of over 50 Chinse artisans with a supporting crew of BrightView team members, the team is handling the construction of traditional and authentic garden elements. The garden elements include carpentry, masonry, rockwork, tile and pebble mosaic paving.

The new features include a Stargazing Tower, Flower Brush Library, Pavilion Encircled by Jade, Reflections in the Stream and Fragrance of Orchids Pavilion, and Verdant Microcosm - poetic names in keeping with Chinese garden traditions.
