If you are in the health and wellness field, you’ve surely heard about the benefits of connecting with nature. Here are some of the key benefits backed by studies:

And many more benefits are being identified in the scientific studies underway.
We work with:

We do wellness assessments and plans, and design spaces for reflection, connection and healing. Spaces that promote wellness through sensory integration, nature connection and physical engagement, which include:
- Healing gardens and landscapes
- Salutogenic design
- Meditation gardens
- Therapy gardens
- Wellness assessments and plans
- Interpretive and recreational trails
- Food gardens
- Staff spaces
We work with you and your team to get everyone on-board so we can design a space for your facility that is safe, accessible and has wide-use and benefit to patients, clients, visitors and staff.
We incorporate Evidence-Based Design Principles (EBD) into our process to create comprehensive, facility plans for wellness and beautiful, restorative gardens and landscapes that respond to your user-group, budget and timeline.
We’ve worked throughout NS creating therapeutic landscapes for hospitals, continuing care facilities, retreat facilities and community agriculture projects. Please see our portfolio for specific project details.
