This project aims to explore the design of healing gardens with plant materials and paths, as well as the role they play in the healing process. Landscape architects have the ability and knowledge to create usable spaces for hospitals that can encourage the healing process. Studies have shown that nature and plant materials are known to have a calming effect on patients and can be used to help in the healing process. The Jamestown Regional Medical Center will be redesigned as an example of how using plant material and suggestive paths can be applied.
