Making gardens accessible
Landscaping is essential to resident safety
Presentation makes sales happen
Enhance your property and its price tag but providing residents with a space they can envisage themselves in and want to show off. Seasonal updates around your reception and sales centre are a great method of keeping things looking fresh, conveying the right message to visitors. As younger generations also realise the benefits of the garden on health and partake in the activity themselves, they too may take particular notice of an aged care facility that provides a number of gardens for their relatives to spend time.
Join us on a Spring Walk
Not only does it provide residents with the opportunity to get to know our team better, but they are able to ask questions about why we do the things we do, discuss the recent updates that have been made around the grounds, and to get a feel for what residents would love to see happen in the future.
We’ll look after:
- Residents front yards
- Club house areas

Have a construction project you’d like to get started?
A space that says ‘you’re safe’
The entry into a hospital building or setting should be a positive experience. The operation or appointment a patient is walking into could be simple or it could be a daunting, life changing experience. Whatever the reason for their presence, we make sure hospitals are sending patients the message that they are entering a safe, supportive and caring space. What we don’t want is someone entering a space where they have to worry about cleanliness or attention to detail. This goes for visitors and family members too. Hospital landscaping is a powerful tool that can help to dramatically improve the patient experience.iscuss the best way to make your grounds look their best again on a budget that suits your organisation.
