Jennie Butchart began to shape this magnificent landscape in 1904. She established, in the style of the grand estates of the period, several distinct gardens to evoke a range of aesthetic experiences. An abandoned limestone quarry was transformed into the dramatic Sunken Garden, a reflection of the early 20th-century beautification movement and an exceptional achievement in Canadian gardening history. Through successive generations of the Butchart family, this site has retained much of its original design, and continues the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays.
Jennie Butchart commen?a ? fa?onner ce magnifique paysage en 1904. Elle con?ut, ? la mani?re des grands domaines de l'?poque, une vari?t? de jardins pour cr?er autant d'exp?riences esth?tiques. Une ancienne carri?re de calcaire devint le spectaculaire Jardin en contrebas, t?moin de mouvement d'embellissement du d?but du XXe si?cle et constituant une r?alisation exceptionnelle de l'histoire horticole au Canada. Au fil des ans, la famille Butchart a su conserver en grande partie le plan d'origine du site et perp?tuer l'approche victorienne de changer, sur une base saisonni?re, les superbes massifs floraux.
