Our Therapeutic Garden Designs for Healing Spaces

It has long been said that gardens can heal the soul and replenish our spirits. And for years we have been coming together in one form or another to cultivate soil, produce food and experience a social connection. The term Therapeutic landscapes is a great descriptive umbrella and in our life journey we may all benefit from the physical and mental wellbeing that a considered landscape would provide. Despite the possible, cognitive, psychological or physical challenges we may experience.

“The Outhouse team provided invaluable support to our Residential Aged Care homes as we launched our inaugural resident gardening competition. Their extensive knowledge and advice gave a much-needed boost to the homes, assisting them to be successful in their design and planting of general and dementia specific gardens. The gardens continue to be nurtured and enjoyed by all. Thanks again for believing in our vision and bringing it to life.”
