Landscape Design - Theraputic Hospital Yards

Public Yard -Hospital Yard

1817 William Strictland (1787-1854). The South Front of the Philadelphia Hospital with Brick-Walled Yards.

Peter Kalm wrote of New York City, "In addition to the hospital...there is another farther up Broadway... There is a yard where patients are allowed to walk, and plans call for planting trees in it." The hospital in Philadelphia also had a walled yard planted with trees and criss crossed with walks for its patients and their visitors to walk in.
