The result of this work is a plan for the development of an 1128 m2 elderly raised garden. The purpose has been to create an overall plan covering the long-term development of the garden. The work process has covered a description of the garden of today, review of requirements, analysis of the garden sections, design of a new plan as well as starting the construction of the new garden. The plan covers a time period of a couple of years to create the new garden since the construction work is carried out during spare time with small resources available. The planning must contain review of functions such as protection from insight, eating area and compost area. Also the esthetic expression must be planned. Colors, shapes, choice of material and plants together make up the esthetic expression. It is recommended to include anything you wish to create in the garden. In a raised garden one has to overcome the step to remove trees and shrubs and think different. This can be particularly hard for a garden owner that has planted and taken care of the garden for a long time. Make sketches on paper and in your head. Try to exchange a too big plum tree with a beautiful magnolia if this is a favorite. Hedges must not necessarily be planted along edges of the garden but can also be planted near the house walls to create a protected outdoor area. My work has also resulted in the design and construction of a small pond. A well-maintained pond gives a fresh feeling in the garden and highlights both plants and materials. The water surface may be a mirror that makes the garden room look bigger. To get in contact with the author try phone +46 0470-48318 (Anders Petersson)
