The Intendant’s garden
Master of buildings and gardens under Louis XV, Robert de Cotte (1656-1735), Hardouin-Mansart’s brother-in-law and successor, designed a garden for the Invalides at the beginning of the 18th century, and left his plans to posterity. Finally created in 1980, the Intendant’s garden is located near the Dôme des Invalides and the residents’ centre. It is the archetypal French garden, with cone-shaped yew trees, boxwood-lined lawns, geometrically shaped flowerbeds, and a central pool with a water fountain. There is a statue of the architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart made in the 19th century by Ernest Henri Dubois (1863-1930).
