The Washington Post recently featured OvS’ latest work at the National Arboretum’s Friendship Garden.

25 years after the original dedication, OvS was part of its re-dedication following a four-year revitalization process. The updated garden maintains many of the same hallmarks of the original, but now highlights a series of plant communities – groups of plant species that complement each other seasonally and botanically.

Eric Groft, OvS VP and Principal, references the garden’s importance within Adrian Higgins’ article. “[This garden has always been] very important because other than the Federal Reserve [garden], this was one of the early outlets people could come and understand what the New American Garden was.”
