Garden and Landscape Studies Project Grant Reports

Garden and Landscape grants are intended to support primary research of a specific site. Project grants may be used for a broad array of projects including field research, site analysis, botanical surveys, heritage conservation and restoration planning, with the goal of promoting the preservation and understanding of historic gardens and other significant designed landscapes.

Eligible projects may include, but are not limited to, the non-destructive investigation, excavation, and on-site study of a garden or landscape, or the surveying or photographing of sites that are at risk or otherwise unrecorded and unexamined.

Learn more about project grants and instructions for applying.
