Huntsville Botanical Garden Welcome Center Gardens
Huntsville Botanical Garden Welcome Center Gardens Plan

3. Fromme Design led a team of Matheny Goldmon Architects and 4 Site to develop a series of compelling gardens around the Garden's new Welcome Center. Collaborating with Garden Staff, Fromme created a series of beautiful, functional, and botanically rich outdoor spaces seamlessly linking the new building with the existing gardens to the south and the Garden's main arrival sequence to the north. The new spaces each has a distinct identity within a unified overall framework. Many of them increase and diversify the Garden’s rental and event venues.

The Floral Promenade irresistibly draws visitors from the Welcome Center along the lake, and into the core of the gardens. A sweeping lawn is the stage against which a year-round pageant of horticultural displays unfolds and creates a venue for programs and events. Plantings combine annuals, long-blooming perennials, flowering shrubs, and small ornamental trees into artful compositions. Other new features include the Dogwood Courtyard with water feature; Celebration Garden with hedge-enclosed wedding lawn; Redbud Courtyard with fountain; Sweetbay Terrace overlooking the lake; and Cherry Plaza with seating and interpretation. The project opened in spring 2017.
