Gardens have always been sources of solace, comfort and rejuvenation, and throughout history, gardens have been designed to help heal body, mind and spirit. More recently, evidence-based research has documented the recuperative effects of nature, and that mental and physical health outcomes are improved when people connect with nature. As a result, healing gardens are becoming important components of our healthcare, religious and educational institutions.

D/P/S works with healthcare providers, religious organizations and educators to develop garden designs that create memorable, restorative environments for our clients that provide refuge and promote healing, wellness and personal growth.
