November 8, 2016 – Lavender, rosemary and raised planter boxes full of vegetables one could tend to from a wheelchair. Hydrangeas. Azaleas.

Those are just some of the elements that landscaper and television personality Chris Lambton, 39, had in mind last week for Dobson Plaza, a nursing home with 100 residents in Evanston.

Along with bringing colors, smells and honeybees to the nursing home’s side yard, “it’s healthy for the residents to be outside, to get their hands dirty and then eat what they grow,” Lambton said.
