Construction of the garden, which spanned a year’s time, was completed in July and the plants were installed at the beginning of the summer. Now, the Courtyard Waterfall is fulfilling its purpose at the Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton.
The waterfall garden was made possible by Chris and Jane Smoot, who hoped for “a waterfall that would replicate nature from the north Georgia mountains, a natural setting that would provide a place for patients’ families, providers, staff and the rest of the community to find replenishment and solace in this busy world.”
The plaza allows patients, their families and staff to step outdoors into nature in a very peaceful setting,” said Anthony Williamson, president of NGMC Braselton. “The Courtyard Waterfall is going to create a whole new experience and level of healing in the plaza through the sight and sounds of moving water.”
FGC worked with Steve Sanchez, our lead design partner from HGOR Planners and Landscape Architects. HGOR designed the entire hospital campus, which is a LEED certified facility.
