Buzz of the Biltmore - Asheville, North Carolina

Complimenting the grandeur of the Biltmore Mansion, the gardens match the beauty of the great estate.  With Vanderbilt wanting none other than the best for his dream home, Frederick Olmsted was hired to design the gardens and landscape of the Biltmore.  Some of Olmsted's notable works include Central Park, Prospect Park, Niagara Reservation, and the grounds of the Capitol in Washington DC.

With ample acreage to cover, numerous gardens are spread across the grounds of the Biltmore.  Styles of these gardens vary from Royal Palaces of England and Chateaus of France, and hints of Asian Gardens along with plants from various parts of the world.
