Melania Trump Unveils the Renovated White House Rose Garden

In late July, the White House announced that First Lady Melania Trump will oversee a renovation of the White House Rose Garden this summer. This weekend, she unveiled the result of that renovation—to vastly mixed reviews. No matter your political affiliation, there’s no denying the importance of this garden, given how many historic events have taken place here (including countless speeches and the hosting of various important figures). It’s where a high school-aged Bill Clinton met President John F. Kennedy, it’s where Tricia Nixon (daughter of President Richard Nixon) got married, and it’s the namesake of the "Rose Garden strategy." So how did the swath of land outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue become such an iconic setting? Well, the answer involves several administrations, thousands of plants, and the help of one famous horticulturist and philanthropist friend of the Kennedys. House Beautiful delves into the Rose Garden’s history, detailing its most important additions and amendments over the last century.

The 1930s (Franklin Delano Roosevelt)

Following in his father’s landscaping footsteps, Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. (son of Frederick Law Olmsted, designer of New York's Central Park) made a name for himself by helping redesign the Rose Garden in 1935, under the commission of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Olmsted Jr. even brought furniture into the garden, made of cast iron, so that anyone who visited would have a place to sit and take in the lush scenery.
