William Carvill was hired by the Board to develop the landscape design of the campus. He added trees to accent and frame the open spaces, planting clusters in odd numbers on the slope beyond Barclay and bordering the College lanes with a diverse collection, reflecting the informal English landscape tradition of Sir Humphrey Repton.
The Green is the heart of the physical campus. Exposed to elements of weather, it is still an intimate space, used by the community for classes, parties, luncheons, play, and study.
The buildings that surround the Green contribute to the character of the space and in turn gain meaning from the space. The paths which cross the Green lead to all parts of the campus, inviting students and community alike to experience Haverford.
