Description

This comprehensive and authoritative guide offers an evidence–based overview of healing gardens and therapeutic landscapes from planning to post–occupancy evaluation. It provides general guidelines for designers and other stakeholders in a variety of projects, as well as patient–specific guidelines covering twelve categories ranging from burn patients, psychiatric patients, to hospice and Alzheimer's patients, among others. Sections on participatory design and funding offer valuable guidance to the entire team, not just designers, while a planting and maintenance chapter gives critical information to ensure that safety, longevity, and budgetary concerns are addressed.
