Accessible gardens are designed to eliminate barriers, allowing senior gardeners as well as younger people with limited mobility the ability to garden

The pathways are wide enough for a wheelchair and often paved or made of crushed stone. Ramps with railings also make it easier for people to get around.

Many accessible gardens use raised beds or even table planters that are supported on legs, allowing people in wheelchairs to easily reach the plants. They also provide plenty of seating and shade canopies to create areas to rest.

Everyone should have access to work with plants, so try using some of these design tips in your garden to make it accessible to all.


Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ in a Minute is a production of the University of Florida’s Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program, IFAS Extension, and WUFT-FM in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
