Historic Landscapes at the Missouri Botanical Garden
MTR's work has included integrating new landscapes with historic features and displaying period styles of this National Historic Register garden. As part of the Victorian District, MTR designed the Victorian Garden, Piper Observatory and Maze, the Herb Garden renovation, and a promenade with raised "pincushion" beds. For the main entrance renovation, MTR designed new columns, gates, and fencing in keeping with the adjacent historic stone walls. We designed the Climatron Axis, lily pools, and sculpture, which create a link between the 1960s-era Climatron and Flora Gate, the original Garden gate house and entrance.
