A Comprehensive Plan for all of Reynolda


Reynolda is in need of a comprehensive vision that will enable the historic estate to thrive as a unique cultural and humanities nexus for Wake Forest University, while attracting tourists and garden enthusiasts from the Southeast. 

This comprehensive roadmap will guide future improvements to the historic Reynolda estate that will inform land use, sustainable infrastructure, explorations of connectivity to adjacent properties, including the Wake Forest and Graylyn estate, visitor experiences, and overall functionality. The plan will provide a framework for Reynolda’s aspirations over the next twenty-five years. 

New Water Fountain


A new water fountain located near the pathway leading to the East Garden Feature will help hydrate and refresh our visitors, both two- and four-legged.

Restoration of Pink & White and Blue & Yellow Gardens


Serving as cherished photo spots for proms and weddings, these color-themed gardens are ready for a refresh. This restoration will include reworking soils, fertilizing, and adding perennials.
