After Terry Garrett witnessed his ailing brother losing the ability to pursue his love of gardening, he took it upon himself to make sure that anyone—regardless of whether they use a wheelchair—could keep their green thumbs in the dirt.


Garrett is the mind behind the Elevated Garden: a tabletop garden explicitly designed for people in wheelchairs. This idea was born after his brother was diagnosed with Stage IV chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.


Standing at only 30 inches tall, the gardens have been used in nursing homes and assisted living facilities as they limit the amount of bending and physical activity that’s typically required by traditional gardening.


According to Good News Network, he components are made and manufactured in Tennessee, by the veteran’s company, T&L Group. Furthermore, the mobile gardens are built on wheels so they can be used indoors through all seasons.

Garrett was recently named a “Horticultural Hero” for his design. He is currently looking to develop handicap-accessible gardening tools so that his company can continue to uplift disabled and geriatric patients that want to garden ‘outside the box’.
