Landscape Maintenance: Care Homes
Landscape Maintenance in Care Homes
We understand that gardens are the focus for many residents in retirement and senior living communities, making landscape maintenance for care homes crucial. Gardens in these locations need to provide an outdoor space that can be used by the more mobile residents maybe for some regular exercise, to walk the dog, to sit and talk with friends and relatives or maybe even to do a bit of “green fingered” gardening. The gardens also need to be accessible to the less mobile residents including those in wheelchairs. The need for clean stable pathways, the use of scented and sensory planting and more importantly, the sense of “home” are so important in gardens for the elderly. Scotscape offer expert care home ground maintenance, ensuring that gardens play a big part in the care of the elderly.
The gardens may also include a specialist dementia area using stimulus from the past to further assist care.
Expertly maintained and well designed gardens are essential for all business, helping to create that vital first impression to potential new clients, even more so when gardens can play such a strong role in the health and variety of care offered to the elderly.

We couldn’t be happier with the work that Scotscape do for us here at Sunrise of Bassett; they are professional, hardworking and always do things just how we want them too. They have recently sponsored a gardening club that we have set up here in partnership with AgeUk, it really is so lovely to see a business give back to the local community in such a positive way.
Scotscape were very passionate about the project and worked within the budget I allocated them. They listened carefully to the brief and, although we had previously fitted out a roof terrace on the same site earlier in the year, they recognised our need for them not to be identical and made fantastic suggestions to enhance and change the overall planting look. They were very quick to send me the information including scaled drawings for sign off. They have kept me informed and up to date on every stage of the project and completed the install in far less time than had been allocated to them.
I would like to take this opportunity to commend your team on the care and due diligence they took whilst working in a finished unit, taking every possible care to execute there task with as minimal fuss as possible.Darren and his team are a credit to your organisation to which it would give me pleasure in working with not only Darren and his team but also Scotscape in the future. Once again please commend your team on my behalf and commend yourself for leading a workforce to be proud of.
The vision at Goodman’s Field is to create a vibrant, successful and new urban quarter which will strongly embrace diverse horticulture that softens the harsh built environment and provide an acknowledgement of the seasons and nature. The bio-diversity of the planting design has created a garden that is now full of bird song and conversation. The human scale and tranquillity of the Garden contrasts with the dynamic pedestrian streets animated with mature trees and cascading water features. Scotscape have embraced the spirit of the garden design and delivered a beautiful and verdant space in the heart of the City of London much used and admired by the residents of the development. Scotscape’s after care of the garden has meant that the garden is continuing to develop to its full potential.
