The fact that Oakwood Village University Woods is known for its beautiful grounds is not by accident, it’s by design. “Many seniors who move to Oakwood are drawn to the two campuses because of the landscaping, open spaces, emphasis on natural beauty and numerous opportunities to remain active gardeners,” says Savannah Conradt, Lead Horticulturist and one of two full-time horticulturists on staff, ensuring the outdoors and a connection to nature remains a priority for the communities. The grounds provide residents gardening opportunities, from arranging flowers inside to growing raised bed and garden vegetables outside.

Each year, Conradt creates a beautiful, accessible, senior-friendly environment at Oakwood Village University Woods, designing new and interesting seasonal displays, flower color schemes and eye-catching features. “The best part is residents approach throughout the year to talk about plantings or holiday light displays around the grounds,” says Conradt. “The pride they feel showing their family and friends the campus brings meaning to my work.”
