Strachan House Care Home in Edinburgh has been awarded 'Garden of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017.
This prestrigious category takes everthing into consideration: aesthetics, variety of colours and plants used, creativity of displays, how well maintained the lawns and paths are and each entrant's provision for wildlife. Judges were also looking for availability of seating for residents and visitors, as well as equipment made for outdoor activities.
The judges said: ''This is a huge garden but staff and volunteers have done a fantastic job at maintaining it and the whole area looks absolutely stunning. It's no wonder that it's such a source of pride for staff and residents.''
Congratulations Strachan House!
