Auberge sur la Côte | The White Gratitude Garden – Concept
Summer Inn with 11 rooms – Centre de Villégiature / Eco-Relaxation Resort, in Charlevoix, Québec, Canada
Type of Garden: Peaceful courtyard garden: Based on the history of this house and life story of the present owner, I have invented an original theme that revolves around “Women’s Love”. One of the gardens is The White Garden to honor and remember Mrs. Binsse, who in 1905 managed the construction of her summer residence with the Architect Oscar R. Smith.

The Relaxation Garden – Concept
Residential Private Garden in Whitby, Ontario, Canada
Type of Garden: Courtyard garden and sensory garden: This healing garden design is therapeutic, safe and uplifting through simplicity… This restorative space displays a purpose of fun relaxation within a relatively small outdoor space. This unique relaxation garden concept offers the following features:

  • Meditative promenade on the aggregate path (periphery)
  • Spacious central opened space for doing exercises such as Yoga
  • Privacy, wind protection and four seasons appeal with the edge of evergreen trees (on the left side of the garden)
  • Gentle aromatherapy planting of lavender and low maintenance boxwood shrubs (on the right side of the garden)
  • Fashionable and comfortable chairs for reading, day-dreaming or afternoon nap (we all need one of these 😉
  • Noise filtration and soothing sound of the water fountain to facilitate a good state of relaxation
  • Ecology friendly with Rain harvesting pavement
  • Cozy evening lighting with solar powered lanterns.

Centre for Mental Health | The Oneness Garden Project – Proposal Development
Mental Health Hospital in Ontario Canada
Type of Garden: The Oneness Garden would provide a greater and safer access to nature by creating evidence-base Therapeutic Garden to promote stress reduction for patients, visitors, and staff. The garden design would inspire deep connections with the “Now” and stimulate the pleasant and peaceful feeling of being “One” with the universe.

We are at an early stage with this project. As a professional, if you are interested in collaboration feel free to contact Julie Moore 289-314-5736.

At Hord Coplan Macht, we believe that all thoughtfully designed landscapes have the power to soothe, restore and delight the senses and elevate the spirit. A memory garden for Alzheimer’s patients, a woodland garden at a nature center, or a sensory garden for a rehabilitation facility all foster emotional and physical well being through their connection to nature.

For more than thirty years, the landscape architects at Hord Coplan Macht have been collaborating on healthcare, housing and education projects to create special places for people to live, learn and heal. In all of our work, we strive for the highest quality of design, balancing the pragmatic with the visionary, to provide sustainable, meaningful, and successful environments. Hord Coplan Macht has designed therapeutic, healing and educational gardens for senior housing, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, nature centers, special needs schools and universities. Our landscape architects bring horticultural expertise, materials and construction knowledge, and a contextual, sustainable approach to all of our designs.
