Hospital garden spaces at two general acute care hospitals and one outpatient clinic were evaluated regarding the environmental aspects of the landscape performances, including stormwater management and tree benefits. For the social aspects, mixed methods were adopted to evaluate the levels of restorativeness for various garden areas using the Garden Assessment Tool for Evaluators (GATE) and behavior mapping techniques. Focus groups were also conducted at each hospital to further explore users’ behaviors, preferences, and satisfaction about the design of the gardens. This presentation will also discuss the spatial relationship between hospital buildings and gardens, and design features that could attract the most usage through cross-case analysis and comparisons.
