The Courtyard Garden, is a joint project between the Greenfingers Charity and Keech Hospice Care, which supports children from Beds and Herts, and adults from South Beds.
The garden, which had remained relatively untouched since the hospice opened 26 years ago, has been transformed into a vision of bright colours.
The original plain space was transformed from a drab concrete courtyard by Jody Lidgard and his team of skilled craftsmen at Bespoke Outdoor Spaces.Lidgard and his team have also been commissioned by Greenfingers Charity to work on the design and build at another children’s hospice garden in the grounds of St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice, Grimsby – due to be created later this year.
Frost said: "I hope this Courtyard Garden surprises people to start with and then puts a smile on their faces. It’s a wonderful space which life-limited children and adults can use in many different ways."I didn’t want to be too clever, but it’s not just any place we are creating. It’s a space that mums and dads and their kids will use and where patients can look out to when they’re being cared for and having their complementary therapy.
"I’ve tried to bring wildlife and the garden inside the hospice and give patients here at Keech Hospice Care a place that is calm and reflective.
