Courtyard therapy garden designed by Landscape Architect, Brian Bainnson, to be used by residents, family members and staff at Providence Benedictine Nursing Center in the community of Mt. Angel, Oregon.
New features to the garden included a wider looped path system, activity areas, seating, shelter at the entry door, and a central fountain providing soothing sounds of water throughout the garden. The existing covered structure was renovated to provide an outdoor gathering and activity space for residents. Children from the community painted tiles for four raised beds. Plantings provide for a four season garden attracting birds and butterflies.
