School Sensory Garden

Design brief:
The aim of this project was to create a sensory garden for a primary school in Aberdeen City. This was for children with visual impairment and additional support needs. It needed to be a colourful, sensory space which was low maintenance.


The design:
The school garden was East facing so the plants needed to be fully hardy. Late summer vibrant colour was designed to create interest when the school returns from the summer holidays in late August. Plants were included which were textural, created sound (bamboo and grasses), scent (nepeta) and taste (herbs). The space had to be low maintenance as it was being maintained by parent volunteers. Plants kindly supplied by Solstice Nurseries.
