A landscape architect planned the garden. It has raised beds, planted beds at ground level and containers. The garden even has a pond and a chicken house. A wooden deck and paths ensure accessibility.
The design and raised beds make this garden special. The user loves his garden. It feels like a continuation of the house; it is barrier-free.
The user was involved with the book ‘Möjligheternas trädgård’ (‘Garden of Possibilities’), published by the Swedish Institute of Assistive Technology, and the Swedish Radio (the book is available in Swedish libraries, last checked June 2017). As thanks he was put in contact with landscape architect Ulf Nordfjäll who designed the garden for him.
The user can reach all of the beds but he mainly takes care of the raised beds and his wife deals with the beds at ground level.
He followed the landscape architect’s advice and brought in 30-40 cm of high-quality topsoil for the entire garden. They have not regretted doing so for a moment.
