Therapeutic gardens are gardens designed to meet the varied needs of a specific population of people, along with their caregivers. Considerations when designing a therapeutic garden vary according to the population, but the following items are typically part of a therapeutic design: overall layout and size, walking paths, plant species selected for size, texture, color, fragrance, adaptive tools, working spaces, and restorative resting and social areas. Therapeutic gardens can be found in a variety of settings but are most often found in elder care facilities, hospitals, and mental health treatment centers.
