ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Luckett & Farley designed this outdoor sanctuary and sculpture garden honoring nurse Anne Stuart Robinson who worked at the hospital for 30 years. Friends, family, and co-workers cooperated to bring the healing garden to fruition after Anne lost her battle with cancer in 2014. Annie’s Garden is designed with colors, patterns, lighting, and focal points that add texture and warmth to the space.
With special attention given to patient ease of use, the healing garden is ADA accessible and utilizes a variety of large colorful planters to provide structure and form to the linear space. LED lights strung in Japanese maple trees add a glowing warmth to the space. The plant palette was selected to provide varying color and shapes throughout the seasons, including evergreen ferns to give texture in the winter. The benches incorporate a grass pattern in the seat back, while table and chair arrangements offer additional flexible seating. A recycled paver flooring system provides the opportunity to incorporate memorial engravings. The space is completed by free-standing colorful metal sculptures that provide focal points within the garden.
