The Great Lawn
Formerly a farm that adjoined the Bellingrath's fishing camp; the Great Lawn is a vast open tract which is planted with seasonal grasses to remain a luxurious green year round. The flower beds that border the lawn are the largest in the Gardens. They are also replanted seasonally with a variety multi-colored annual foliage.
The Great Lawn was originally one of the few open spaces on the property. It at one time held an orchard of satsumas adjoining the old cabin occupied by Mary Parker to the north. George Rogers, the Bellingrath's architect, replaced the orchard with turf and in Mr. Bellingrath's Day the border held signs asking that visitors keep off the grass.
