Beautiful landscapes and Memory Garden for year-round interest


Conceptualization, Landscape Architecture

Location: Delaware, OH

Responding to a recent building additions, The Willow Brook Christian Home was looking to renovate and add new exterior spaces in two of their facilities.  PLANIT conceptualized a Memory Garden adjacent to the newly renovated Memory Care Unit at the Willow Brook at Delaware Run, complete with a short walking path, shade sail structure, and furnishings.


In the same facility, the Courtyard off of the newly expanded main dining area was redesigned.  The courtyard amenities included a small stroll garden, beautiful landscape, and a functional dry stream bed. A functional rain garden is integrated in this garden and is fed by rain chains from the downspouts.  These elements add year round interest and motion in the space. 


The existing courtyard on Lazelle Road was redesigned with new landscaping, fence, gate, and trellis, and is now the main respite area for the facility.
