Conservatory Garden: E105 - The South Garden
South of the Vanderbilt Gate is a classic English garden.
In 1983, a major renovation was performed in the South Garden when new flower beds were beautifully redesigned under the guidance of garden designer Lynden B. Miller.
At its center is the Burnett Fountain
festooned with water lilies in the summer and overseen by the two child characters from Frances Hodgson Burnett's book "The Secret Garden", Mary and Dickon.
At its perimeter is a garden corridor of bushes and trees, which create a wonderful rustic ambiance to the studied geometry.
