Repurposing of the garden

The new garden connects the artist’s dwelling with the new reception building. The current garden, which was planted in 1933, will be recovered as much as possible.

The box hedges and perennials of the parterre will be transferred to Schoonselhof cemetery. The wood of the few pollarded lime trees that will be felled will be used to build furniture for the Rubens House. The majestic, 250-year-old yew will stay where it is.
