Sensory Gardens

{stimulate your senses}

Here at Garden House Design we understand the importance of a well-designed sensory garden. We are able to ensure a brief is brought to life to become a sensory stimulating area suitable for its intended users, be they, adults or children, able-bodied or disabled. Whatever, the requirements of your sensory garden may be, we can work with you to ensure you are left with a useful, sustainable, sensory stimulating space that will evoke all the senses and help your service users to embrace nature.

To ensure all elements of the garden are accessible scent, colour, water and lighting are set at various levels through the use of raised beds, planters and troughs to ensure people of all ages and abilities are able to enjoy the sensory garden.

Planting is selected for vibrant colours, prominent fragrances and non-toxic qualities. We like to use planting that will attract wildlife into the garden, thus adding an extra element of stimulation to the garden.

Sensory gardens can include spaces built to climb and balance upon, making for an interactive environment and the use of bridges, tunnels and textured flooring can be used to create a stimulating environment for wheelchair users. We often use artificial lighting alongside areas of natural light and shade for extra interest. Water brings sound and movement into a garden and can be a very calming influence on the space but equally can be used for fun and play applications too.
