Sometimes the neighborhood chooses your niche for you. Bonnie Spindler, CRS, team leader at Zephyr Real Estate in San Francisco, didnt start out as a specialist in Victorian homes. But as a history buff and former antiques dealer, she loved buying old houses and fixing them up. So when she moved her real estate business from Minnesota to San Francisco in the 1990s, she was immediately drawn to Alamo Square, with its famous, much-photographed “Painted Ladies”—Victorian and Edwardian houses whose exteriors were painted in three or more colors in the 1960s in order to enhance their architectural details.
Healing Landscapes is a site that lists landscape designers who can help create the right kind of home therapy garden for specific needs. Jack Carman, a landscape architect whose Design for Generations is based in Medford, N.J., suggests simply searching the web for “therapeutic” or “meditation” gardens and your local area to find designers who can help. The American Horticultural Society lists master gardeners and other information such as how to plant pollinator gardens. More and more botanic centers offer therapy garden education. The Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, Ill., was among the first to do so and offers two certificate programs—one on horticultural therapy and another for health care garden design.
