It was nearly 3 years ago when Bakersfield Landscape Company Monji Landscape Companies was approached by representatives with Memorial Hospital to design & construct a healing garden for their campus. They wanted a garden design that would specifically cater to & engage the children of their new pediatric wing. After a number of years of passionate fundraising, development, & construction, the project was recently unveiled. The new Helen Taylor Cobbs Children’s Healing Garden is a garden design that now has a one-of-a-kind environment for children & adults alike.
We created the garden design to be both relaxing & engaging. We created a number of unique garden waterfalls & water fountains for the space to draw visitors in & provide peaceful views from the interior. We even crafted a number of playful topiary animals to draw children into the garden. Surrounding visitors to the garden design are countless varieties of blooming plants, shrubs, & trees. We wanted a colorful planting palate to once again reinforce the youthful nature of the design.
We also created a number of unique seating spaces throughout the landscape design, all of which are comfortably located underneath large shade trees & with specific views of the garden. The garden now stands in the main courtyard of Memorial Hospital & is open to patients, employees & visitors.
