We are Buzz Creative Spaces and we design, build and install BESPOKE outdoor spaces for people with special needs, dementia, mobility problems, visual impairment or mental health issues.
As a company we are passionate about transforming outdoor spaces into places that fill the senses and that enable the user to relax, socialise, reminisce, enjoy quiet time or participate in hobbies; gardening for example. Outdoor spaces are also perfect places to rest for rehabilitation or convalescence. At the heart of all of this are people, their experience and their feeling of happiness and well-being.
Gardens are also therapeutic places where we are free to enjoy nature, fresh air and sunlight. It is also well known that exercise has very positive health benefits, being outdoors can help to maintain an active and healthy body and mind, whilst access to sunlight provides vitamin D, which is crucial for the maintenance of bone and muscle strength.
An outdoor space also creates opportunities for reminiscence such as enjoying the familiar smell of flowers, listening to bird song, hanging out the washing, cleaning the car or feeding the chickens. Each of us have memories of enjoying a garden so creating a garden that people can identify as familiar ‘just like home’ is important.
DESIGN, BUILD & INSTALL – HOW WE WORK WITH YOU TO GET THE BEST RESULTS
Listening carefully enables us to build tailor made, inclusive gardens that are sustainable and fit for purpose. Every part of every garden that we create is designed to meet the needs of the end user, whilst working to budget costs. All our outdoor spaces are designed, built and installed by our dedicated in-house team.
GARDENS FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, DEMENTIA OR FOR ANY RESIDENTIAL SETTING
Important features include wide, level paths which allow the garden to be fully accessed, not just viewed from a patio. Residents can exercise, or find a favourite spot to be social or quiet and contemplative. It is also the perfect place to spend time with visiting families.
Shade and shelter are important factors within the garden so that it can be enjoyed throughout the changing seasons. Plenty of rest stops mean that a place to sit is never far away; these in turn provide opportunities to soak up sensory aspects of the garden and interact with wildlife.
Residents can contribute to daily life through meaningful occupation; tending the garden, growing vegetables, feeding the birds or using a workshop for hobbies and maintenance. A raised vegetable garden allows residents to grow and tend plants, raised planters are well suited to older people who prefer not to bend or kneel, and they are also accessible for wheelchair users.
Sensory plants provide colour, perfume and texture and often encourage wildlife, such as birds and insects to the area, whilst attractive garden features create interesting and attractive spaces that help to orientate residents.
