Ian Robertson, 1938-2014

The late Ian Robertson was a master horticulturalist and internationally known garden designer who left his mark on gardens all over the globe. He chose the Charlottesville- Albemarle area for his headquarters and through his company, Ian Robertson Ltd., Ian designed public, private and corporate gardens.

Ian was especially proud of his work at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Va., where he designed many of the original gardens including the Henry Flagler Perennial Garden, Marth and Reed West Island Garden, the early Japanese Tea Garden and the Lucy Payne Minor Memorial Garden.

It is fitting that his legacy should help to establish and enrich the Botanical Garden of the Piedmont.
