Therapeutic Landscapes Network

The Therapeutic Landscapes Network is a knowledge base and gathering space about healing gardens, restorative landscapes, and other green spaces that promote health and well-being. Our mission is "Connecting people with information...people...nature." We are an international, multidisciplinary community of designers, health and human service providers, scholars, and gardeners. Though our focus is broad, our primary emphasis is on evidence-based design in healthcare settings. The Therapeutic Landscapes Network website,, offers:
  • The TLN Blog—Articles, guest posts, research updates and summaries, and listings of events
  • The TLN Designers and Consultants Directory—The only directory of professionals who specialize in the design of therapeutic landscapes
  • Hundreds of references on restorative landscapes and therapeutic gardens, many from peer-reviewed journals
  • Lists of gardens in health care facilities, as well as other restorative landscapes such as community gardens, memorials, sensory gardens, and gardens in prisons
  • Information on evidence-based design and post-occupancy evaluations
  • Pages on horticultural therapy, children and nature, labyrinths, Feng Shui, and art and health
  • Horticultural information such as medicinal plants, plants that attract wildlife, and plants to avoid
  • Information on educational opportunities
  • Links to related organizations
