Accessible, Caring Gardens

Gardens that protect and enrich

Human beings possess an innate attraction to nature and it is known that being outdoors creates feelings ranging from calm tranquillity to stimulation and restoration.

Gardens are very important to the quality of life for people of all ages, in particular for young children, anyone recovering from a traumatic injury, people with a physical disability or mobility difficulty; people with a mental disability for example dementia or Alzheimer’s.

A well designed outdoor area can help
