WHY DON'T WE GO INTO THE GARDEN?

A DESIGNER HANDBOOK FOR

Creating Actively Used Care Setting Gardens

by Debbie Carroll and Mark Rendell


The perfect handbook for those looking at how they can create a garden design which results in an actively used outside space.


I'm forever banging on about how important care home activities are for each resident.

When I talk about care home activities I'm not just referring to those activities which take place in the home, but those which care home residents and staff are able to engage in, within their community and beyond.


The garden, I believe, is very much a part of the natural space around each resident. As such, it should be easily accessed by all.

This handbook cuts right to the heart of the matter - care culture!

Carroll and Rendell have dedicated one of the five sections in this fabulous handbook entirely to focus on care culture.

Here, they share the findings of their extensive research project. Providing us with the answers we need to understand what it is that makes a care setting garden that is actively used.


The handbook also covers the hidden dangers, an introduction to Relationship-Centred Design (RCD), The Care Culture Banding Tool as well as design observations and tips.


Whether you are looking at designing your care home garden in-house or getting a professional to come in and do it for you, this handbook is a must read before you get started.
