A number of residents at a care  home for disabled clients requested some raised beds outside, suitable for people in wheelchairs, or walkers with a seat, to access and work on the beds. Good quality decking boards were used. The beds were made with legs to minimise contact of the wood with the ground. The bottom of the beds were made to leave drainage slots between the boards. The beds were lined with permeable membrane (Sold to stop weeds coming through gravel), as this apparently makes the timber last longer.

The footrest of the client’s reclining armchair did not fully support her feet.
