Virtual Tour: Biltmore’s Historic Gardens & Grounds
Our horticultural experts continually work to preserve Olmsted’s original vision for the gardens and grounds, including our Rose Garden that features more than 250 varieties.
As a century-old model for forest conservation (and, more recently, for sustainability, thanks to nine acres of solar panels), Biltmore continues to honor George Vanderbilt’s legacy of environmental protection.
