Thanks to donor support, the therapy garden at Providence Benedictine Nursing Center is a showpiece that blesses our patients, residents, visiting families and employees.
In early 2019, this well-loved space received a major renovation, thanks to funds provided by our generous donors. The garden had become overgrown and required some much-needed TLC. In addition, poor drainage led to standing puddles that blocked access after rains, and the irrigation system needed attention.
We added new plants and flowers, painted the exterior of the building that fronts the garden, cleared drains, repaired the irrigation system, removed overgrown vegetation, pruned tree limbs to let in more light and added dry creeks made of river rock.
Gardens require constant upkeep, improvements and structural maintenance. Thanks to your support, we can continue to make improvements to our therapy garden, and everyone can enjoy the healing beauty and experience a sense of renewal.
