Our Garden Project

The gardens at Rubislaw Park have been a big focus recently as we approach the warmer and brighter months. We place a high value on our residents being able to get out in the fresh air, soak up some vitamin D, and admire the wildlife that we are so fortunate to be graced with.

Our garden project has been a popular topic of discussion in our resident’s weekly coffee mornings, and residents have played a huge part in deciding what we could do to brighten up the garden areas and courtyards at Rubislaw Park.

Throughout the Spring, we began to plant some flowers and shrubs in the raised planters, and it has been so lovely seeing them bloom that we recently purchased more flowers of all different colours to really make our outdoor areas bright and cheery.

Our residents were only too happy to help with the planting of the flowers and the staff at Rubislaw Park even learned some great gardening tips along the way! We have lots of avid gardeners amongst us and we believe it is important for our residents to maintain their well-loved hobbies. For those who are new to gardening, we often encourage them to try it, as it has immense benefits for both mental and physical health.

We also wanted to incorporate a sensory feel to our garden and ensure it was an area not only for the residents but for their family members and staff too. To do this, we have now planted a herb garden (which our Chef will happily make use of) and lavender for its lovely smell and touch sensation. To further help with sensory, we have installed solar butterflies, windmills, and wind chimes for sight and sound.

With new garden furniture having also recently been put out, we have begun making use of our beautiful new outdoor space with our recent Queen’s Platinum Jubilee garden party. We look forward to welcoming more guests to our garden and enjoying the great outdoors this Summer!
