Shady Grove Hospital

A National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and Landscape Contractors Association (LCA) award-winning project. The Barbara Truland-Butz Healing Garden is part of an ongoing expansion and effort to continue to create outdoor environments that promote healing at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. By exploring non-traditional open spaces, like the rooftop used for this project, an area that was previously devoid of amenities has been turned into a therapeutic and restorative environment that can be used by patients, visitors and hospital staff.
