The therapeutic garden is not intended to cure, rather it is the extension of a quality lifestyle, designed to stimulate the guests to use the outdoor spaces in complementary sensory way.
The Wellness Path
It proposes a network of small paths that will intersect the various gardens in order to create a new event. Its form is characterized by the provision of lines of flooring and / or vegetation. The idea is to create a wide range of courses, within a relatively small space.
The Senior’s Path
The mobility of older people is very important, allowing them to maintain autonomy. So we intend to create a space where users can develop and exercise their motor skills.
The Aromatic Garden
Aromatic herbs sharpen the sense of smell, sight and taste. with natural medicinal properties.
An invitation to contemplation, the Japanese garden provides peace and spirituality, and whomever enters this atmosphere will have the distinct impression of being inside a meditation temple. The texture and colors in an Eastern garden are less important than the philosophical, religious and symbolic elements. Its essential elements represent life, instilling feelings of peace and tranquility. These elements include water, rocks, plants and garden accessories.
On the lower level of the property, exists an organic orchard with several species of trees in production: orange, tangerine, fig, loquat, olive, apricot, apple, pear, lemon, cherry, walnut, peach and plum.
A 3,500m² area where four greenhouses will be installed, with fixed benches and germination of plants in racks, a meter in height, designed ergonomically to avoid discomfort.
Two greenhouses are for flower production, two are reserved for vegetables and small fruits.
Besides being a hobby with growing popularity, contact with plants and flowers can bring multiple benefits to a person’s well-being.
Serena Wellness’ landscaping is designed to foster a relationship with the environment, both in terms of continuity of materials, and of movement and accessibility. It is intended to aesthetically enhance the site, and ensure an increase in environmental quality. To this end, many spaces and pathways have been created, each with a unique objective.
