One of the gardens sections which was very interesting was the Enabling Garden which used raised beds. It demonstrated the latest trends including textured and fragrant plants and multi-colored paving. Raised beds allow gardeners to care for the garden more easily with little bending, stooping or reaching. A level grade, firm surface, good drainage and color contrasts for visual demonstration contributes. The plants were chosen for their beauty and appeal to multiple senses with bright colors, fragrance and texture.
Someone in a wheelchair or who needs to remain seated most of the time could still garden. They are also helpful to people with visual impairments because they're in closer range than the ground.
Notice that someone in a sitting position can reach the long thin flowerbeds. Rather than sit in the chair, many people simply pull themselves from the chair onto the wide stone coping and garden.
