The Lawn

One of the few areas of lawn in the landscape, this area welcomes visitors through the arched stone wall entrance and provides a space for gathering and events.

About the Lawn Area

The Lawn is surrounded by planted native gardens, meadow, shrubland and residential native gardens. A variety of micro-climates exist along the long stone wall, under and around trees, in a small rain garden, and within the areas of planted trees and shrubs. These provide special niches for plants that would not be suited to the open meadow.
