East Conservatory Plaza

Longwood Gardens’ East Conservatory Plaza features the first terraced lawn in the United States designed by landscape architect Kim Wilkie.

The dynamic new gathering space continues Longwood founder Pierre S. du Pont’s legacy of creating unique spaces that integrate into the natural landscape. Composed of five tiers of sweeping grass-covered terraces that emerge like steps from the landform, the Plaza is surrounded by woodland plantings, including a more than 200-year-old English Yew.  The innovative design of the terraced lawn creates a sculptural clearing, allowing for dramatic views of the Topiary and other gardens to the south, as well as of the East Conservatory façade.
