Governor's Palace Gardens - Colonial Williamsburg

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 February 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The formal gardens on the Governor's Palace grounds are part of the 90-acres of greens and gardens enjoyed at Colonial Williamsburg. Garden designs throughout Colonial Williamsburg range from classic formal to utilitarian.

Gardens played an important role in 18th-century Williamsburg. However, when the restoration of Williamsburg began, there was little documentation or physical evidence of the original gardens. A great amount of research was necessary to re-create the delightful gardens and greens that visitors are able to enjoy today.
