Rediscovery Gardens

At Gadd Group, we specialise in crafting aged care and dementia gardens tailored to the unique needs of the older generation. Our gardens are meticulously designed to provide a restorative and supportive environment, addressing both the physical therapy and mental health needs of our older generation. Drawing on principles of sustainability, orientation, and accessibility, horticultural therapy offers a range of benefits, from promoting physical activity and social interaction to reducing stress levels and enhancing overall well-being.

Our comprehensive approach to designing a therapeutic garden encompasses various types, including healing gardens, sensory gardens, and meditation gardens, each strategically designed to meet specific therapeutic horticulture goals and programs. By integrating elements that stimulate reminiscence, sensory stimulation, and meaningful activity, we create engaging outdoor garden spaces that foster a sense of connection with nature and promote a sense of autonomy and independence. With careful planning and consultation, we ensure that our garden layouts maximise therapeutic benefits, providing individuals living with a valuable resource for enhancing quality of life and overall wellness.

Combining Therapeutic And habitat gardens

Our passion lies in crafting gardens that not only reconnect individuals with nature but also offer them an opportunity to interact with wildlife in its native habitat. We utilise our unique skill set to combine habitat gardens with therapeutic gardens creating a sensory experience while providing food and shelter to local native Australian wildlife for a unique and meaningful experience.

Benefits Of Therapeutic Gardens

Therapeutic gardens are designed spaces that incorporate elements of nature to promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being. These gardens are intentionally created to provide a restorative environment that encourages relaxation, stress reduction, and healing.

Spending time in a therapeutic garden can significantly reduce stress levels. The soothing sights, sounds, and smells of nature help to calm the mind and promote a sense of tranquillity.

Therapeutic gardens have been shown to have positive effects on mental health, including reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The sensory stimulation provided by the natural environment can improve mood and overall psychological well-being.

Engaging with nature in a garden setting can also lead to physical health benefits. Activities such as gardening, walking, or simply being outdoors can promote physical activity, which is important for overall health and wellness.

Therapeutic gardens can provide a beneficial environment for individuals with cognitive impairments, such as those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The sensory experiences and familiar elements of nature can help to stimulate memories and cognitive function. We like to think of these as rediscovery gardens.

These gardens often serve as community spaces where people can come together to connect with others, fostering a sense of belonging and social support. This social interaction is an important aspect of overall well-being.

The beneficial effects of garden therapy for children with special needs such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder is well documented. Many schools are now inclusive, ensuring all children can learn and play together despite their needs while being supported. A purpose-designed therapeutic garden benefits all students regardless of their needs connecting them with nature in an all-inclusive natural environment.

Therapeutic gardens encourage mindfulness and being present in the moment. They provide opportunities for reflection, meditation, and contemplation, which can lead to increased self-awareness and a greater sense of inner peace.

Overall, horticultural therapy offers a holistic approach to wellness by addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects of health. By providing a restorative environment that reconnects individuals with nature, these gardens play a valuable role in promoting overall well-being and quality of life.
