Gardening is a beautiful hobby. Anyone enjoying it, or even witnessing someone enjoy it can understand the joys that this hobby brings. So, when Terry Garrett’s brother stopped gardening due to progressive ailments, he decided to invent tabletop gardens. Gardens which would allow specially-abled people to enjoy the hobby.
After his brother contracted Stage IV Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Terry found the Elevated Garden. These tabletop gardens are specifically built for people bound to wheelchairs. The garden stands at 30 inches above the ground and has been frequently used in hospitals and other places. The advantage of this garden is that people wouldn’t have to exert themselves physically to a great extent while engaging in this activity.
Good News Networks reports that the company builds all its products in Tennessee, using machines from the T &L Group. The tabletop garden also has wheels, so that they can be maneuvered into rooms.
For his efforts, Garrett has been awarded the title of ‘Horticultural Hero’. His present endeavors include manufacturing gardening paraphernalia for disabled people so that they too can enjoy this beautiful hobby.
