Container gardens are a third alternative. Henriksen recommends that each pot have three types of plants: a “thriller” or tall plant that makes a strong statement in form or color, a “filler” that fills the space and hides the soil, and a “spiller” that weeps over the edge. Master gardener Carole Aine Langrall, owner of The Flower Spy in Santa Fe, N.M., and Baltimore likes to limit the palette to a few hues and textures to give the illusion of more space. Decorative. Whether its hardy artwork, whimsical found objects, or wind chimes, decorative elements personalize a space. However, decorative items should be limited so they dont overcrowd a small garden, Van Zandt says. One striking piece can create a beautiful focal point to direct the eye, says Henriksen.
If youre looking for inspiration, ask hospitals and wellness centers in your area if they have therapy gardens that the public can use. Mercy Medical Center in downtown Baltimore planted trees, boulders, paths, and water features on three outdoor levels of its new Mary Catherine Bunting Center building with the firm of Mahan Rykiel Associates in charge. “Families, staff, and patients enjoy seeing greenery flourish through windows and when outdoors. It helps them remember that life goes on as patients recover,” says Dr. Joseph Costa, medical director of the intensive care unit.
