Active adults living is embracing green thumbs!

Don't leave your garden behind. From herbs & vegetable gardens to the dazzle of flowers, communities are becoming adorned with resident-involved gardens. When exploring a property, consider box gardens & courtyard gardens, as well access to patio planters & even greenhouses

 

Whether for physical therapy or simply enjoying nature, gardening is quickly becoming a must-have for boomers moving to Active Adult residences.
