Frank Lloyd Wright was a master when it came to artfully blurring the lines between interior and exterior space. The Wright-designed landscape at the Martin House is one of the finest examples of Wright’s concept of organic architecture which focuses on integrating nature and design. 

The grounds at the Martin House include expansive gardens and outdoor rooms, which contain a variety of colorful floral plantings, trees, shrubs, and vines. One of the most distinctive features here is an arc of seasonal blooms, known as the floricycle, that encompasses the east verandah of the main house.

The historic landscape restoration was completed in 2019, but if you haven’t had the chance to wander the grounds or enjoy this particular tour, this architectural gem is a must-see. 

This tour experience is led by a docent with extensive gardening knowledge and a shared enthusiasm for the property’s beauty. You’ll learn all about Darwin and Isabelle Martin’s love of gardening and the history of this historic landscape during this tour.

The seasonal Landscape Tour includes exploring the historic landscape, conservatory, and carriage house, but it does not enter the main Martin House. Since this 90-minute tour is primarily outside and it takes place rain or shine, make sure to watch the weather forecast and plan accordingly. 

Landscape tours officially begin on May 22 and will continue into the fall. This season, you can also experience the Jun Kaneko massive ceramic sculptures placed throughout the landscape as part of the public art project. Advance reservations are required. You can make yours right online
