Our sensory gardens has roped walkways for those residents who required assistance while walking and a pagoda with a seating area, fitted well in a corner of the back garden. In the gardens we have roses, standard and creeping, fragrant jasmine, buddleia, clematis, honeysuckle, magnolias, azaleas, hydrangeas, rhododendrons and laburnum to name just a few, that stimulate the senses. We also have fruit trees – apple, pear and plum and a grape vine.
Raised wooden planters around the garden, makes it easier for residents to ‘potter about’ and help weed or replant. Our garden shed also provides a quiet place of reflection and refreshment for our residents who wish to sit and look out over the wonderful views, whilst our greenhouse offers the opportunity to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers from seed. The greenhouse provides us with fresh vegetables for our residents and leftovers provide sustenance to our resident chickens in the garden.
At the front of the building we have colourful pots that give an abundance of colour throughout the year along with an area for shrubs and flowers that can be picked for the home. In the compound preparations are made to fill the hanging baskets that adorn the home every year. We intend to ‘show off’ the garden every year so we will be keeping you updated with pictures throughout the seasons. We hope you enjoy them and if you are in the area, please come and visit us. Wheelchair access from the car park has now made it easier to enjoy the garden for our residents and their relatives.
