Landscape Restorations

Since the first restoration in 1929 at Kenmore in Fredericksburg, the Garden Club of Virginia has used proceeds from its signature event, Historic Garden Week, to restore and preserve a vital segment of Virginia’s landscape, with nearly 50 projects completed to date. Knowledgeable gardeners at each restored location are responsible for ongoing maintenance, in close contact with the Garden Club of Virginia and the GCV Landscape Architect. All properties listed below are currently under contract with the Garden Club of Virginia. Each garden is open to the public.
