In the long run, the ADA wheelchair accessible garden offers great value for money compared to wooden designs which need to be maintained and treated regularly. Treating wood regularly is important so it doesn’t absorb water, attract insects, mildew and rot. The Green Circle Garden lowers maintenance and doesn’t need to be treated or replaced.
