Garvan Woodland Gardens

In the world of gardening, shady areas are often described as difficult to design or as troublesome spots where few plants will grow. If this sounds familiar take heart because there is a beautiful woodland garden in Hot Springs, Arkansas, that illustrates just how easy it is to have a gorgeous landscape without full sun.

Garvan Woodland Gardens is the legacy of Louise Cook Garvan, who began designing and planting the site in 1956. Since her death, the gardens have continued to flourish under the guidance of the University of Arkansas' Department of Landscape Architecture.

Garvan is designed to fit harmoniously with the natural setting and has something to behold in every season.
