In Iranian culture and art, a garden is an integral part of Iran's identity reflecting how humanbeings have interacted with nature. Planting and vegetation designs are an important part of a garden. Since vegetation is a decaying element of a garden, its replacement and restoration as an architectural monument is not quite easy. Therefore, examining the history of the garden and the study of its initial patterns are of particular importance. Therefore, this study is an attempt to investigate vegetation and changes in the initial patterns of planting in the Golshan garden in Tabas. In order to investigate the evolution of the planting design, we gathered the data through field observations by a gardening specialist and interviews with elderly people, local historians, and experts. The primary data were collected from available sources. During the field observations, the type of trees and its location in the garden were examined. The observation was carried out to the extent that their cultivation patterns emerged. Through this historical study, the original garden pattern and its vegetation were discovered. The emerged patterns can help us identify plants not aligned with the original garden landscape and restore and preserve the originality of the garden.
