Mather Lifeways Senior Living

Location: Wilmette, IL

The recent building additions and renovations of this excellent senior residential facility created significant new areas of landscape. Included were the creation of a major walking path and three new courtyards for the resident’s use.  The walking path features extensive landscape planting, abundant sitting areas, and several raised beds for individual garden plots. Residents may plant flowers and/or vegetables for their own use. Two of the courtyards are designed for outdoor seating and dining, and the third features an enclosed pavilion for use throughout the year, even in the coldest weather. The landscape is designed to encourage outdoor activities for the seniors of all ages.
