Landscaped Gardens

At The Ashton Care Home, we are fortunate to have our own landscaped gardens, offering residents a private outdoor space to stretch their legs, get some vitamin D and take in the natural beauty our garden provides.

If residents wish to enjoy some alone time or are wanting to invite family members for afternoon tea outside, our gardens are the perfect spot to truly unwind.

Gardening Facilities

When the sun is shining, our Activity Coordinator arranges for many activities to be enjoyed in our garden, including gardening. Residents can participate in gardening club, where residents can help to plant herbs in the herb garden, maintain the various plants and flowers throughout, as well as refill the bird feeders. There is always something to do to help. We encourage our residents to join in with outdoor activities to gain great health and social benefits.

Summertime Entertainment

Summertimes at The Ashton Care Home are the months that are loved by residents and staff. We always attempt to make the most of the dry, warm weather whenever possible, and so we often host BBQs and outdoor entertainment outdoors, as well as an annual Summer Fete for residents, staff and family members. The outdoor activities on offer present great social opportunities where loved ones can also join in on the fun.

What You’ll Find in Our Landscaped Gardens

Here at The Ashton Care Home, we offer residents the best, five-star facilities. Our beautiful landscaped gardens are available to our residents all year round and we encourage them to utilise the space as much as possible.

Flower Beds & Plants

Our raised flower beds are the main focus of our private, landscaped gardens which help to provide a vibrant atmosphere. We encourage residents to enjoy the pleasant, calming activity of planting; our plethora of flowers and plants means all residents are able to get green fingered and plant their own flowers on their own or with the help of a staff member.

Outdoor Furniture

Our garden is kitted out with benches and dining furniture, to enjoy drinks and dinner outside during the warmer months. Whether residents want to indulge in an afternoon tea or catch up with friends and family over a coffee, there is always the opportunity to get some fresh air and watch the world go by. 

Be at One With Nature

Many of our residents like to observe the wildlife that frequently visit our home. Residents can enjoy the many species of birds that visit our garden, as well as other friendly visitors. Our garden is a place of relaxation so we always encourage residents to go outside every once in a while.
