The New Addition To Elements: Introducing the ‘New and Improved’ Bush Garden

Brisbane Retirement Village


At Elements, there is no shortage of space to sit and soak up the serenity. Our bush garden is no exception. The bush garden is a small outdoor space within the village where residents can have BBQ’s, enjoy a cuppa’ or catch up with their neighbours. The idea for the bush garden originated with a group of our early residents, some years ago. We thank them for this beautifully peaceful setting and are beyond excited to have seen the space revitalised to prolong its life and functionality. The recent upgrade includes new decking and a new garden bed all organised and actioned by our very own residents!

Hands on Opportunity

Elements presents opportunity for residents to become actively involved in projects around the village, enabling those that are keen to utilise their skills and be hands on. Many of our residents have previously worked within a trade and have entered the village with a range of construction skills and knowledge. Other residents have picked up such skills since joining the village due to hands on opportunities in our work shed, and now also enjoy working on projects around the village. We love seeing such great teamwork and craftmanship from our residents.

Elements village

At Elements we are constantly designing ways to make our village even better, ensuring that our community and their families can continue to enjoy it for many years to come. Having dedicated outdoor areas across the village allow residents to enjoy time outside comfortably alongside mother nature without needing to leave their home. Many people are not aware that Elements Retirement Living is located right next to Daisy Hill National Park. This means that our village is surrounded by bushland and an abundance of many native Australian wildlife, including one of Australia’s most significant regional koala population!  If you haven’t visited Elements yet, you really should come and see how lucky we are to have nature on our doorstep. The bush garden is a great place to take in this serenity.

Grand Opening

The inaugural  bush garden was christened with an impromptu BBQ, so it was only fitting that we celebrated this upgrade with a few sausages on the barbie too. The updated decking and garden were praised during the grand (re)opening celebration. Elements Retirement Living CEO, Chiou See was able to thank the residents for their hard work and resident Alan cut the ceremonial ribbon as recognition for being the instigator of this bush garden rejuvenation. We celebrated the day with a good old sausage sizzle provided by the Chiou See. No achievement goes unnoticed within our village, we love any excuse to come together and celebrate!
