The Biltmore Gardens were originally designed by one of America’s foremost landscape architect’s Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1880’s. This was his last work, with Central Park his first great work. His genius for design and his love of nature are visible today throughout the 8,000-acre estate where today horticultural experts preserve Olmsted’s original vision for the gardens.

Here is a brief tour of some of the highlights-

The rose garden is planted with more than 2,300 roses with 250 varieties. The arched arbor of Cecile Brunner roses.

The Walled Garden abloom with thousands of daffodils and Dutch tulips in Spring.

The Azalea Garden – 15-acres of fabulous array of more than 1,000 azaleas, representing 12 native species and countless hybrids thrive in the gardens.

It is inspiration like this that is infused strolling the gardens that I draw upon when working with clients. Not only to enhance the inside of their residence, but also their landscaping. As an Interior Designer, I design not only the look, feel and touch of their inner sanctuary, but the approach, ensuring both the exterior and interior meld.
