A diverse range of Purposes 

There are many uses of sensory gardens, you can use them as a teaching tool for your children, to stimulate senses or if you have another idea, you can choose. These gardens are completely customizable and can include different elements depending on your needs. Your sensory garden can include components such as walks, pathways, brickwork or paving to make it even more useful. If you are still not sure what precisely can you expect from a sensory garden installation you can get in touch with a professional who will be happy to explain everything in detail and also advise which one will meet your needs.

Functionality And Safety As Imperatives 

Like we already mentioned, a sensory garden is designed so that it can please all your senses. Patios, stonework and paving can all be included to make it even more utilitarian. It should be paid extra attention to these elements of the garden intended for walking, sitting or strolling. Because safety is always a priority, plants should be non-toxic, non-allergenic and pesticide-free, so you can rest assured that your kids will play healthy and safe and create a positive bond with the environment.

Variety of Plants That Stimulate Senses

Before you choose plants for your sensory garden, first check which ones are the most suitable for your area. Then inspect your soil and weather conditions as well. You want your greenery to look luscious and vibrant throughout the whole year and to enjoy the gorgeous view and smells along with your visitors. Speaking of senses, let’s start from hearing. If you want to focus on stimulating hearing, you should choose plants that make noises when people walk by them.  These are known as ‘sound plants’ and they are bamboo stems, but besides that, there are many seed pods that make exciting, crunching sounds beneath your feet. A good solution is putting wildlife-friendly plants in your garden and making sure that the buzzing of bees or birds chirping stimulates your guest’s sense of hearing. Not only will these sensory gardens stimulate your hearing, but they will also be beneficial for your touch, smell and sight. Two plants have fascinating textures and those are lamb’s ear and moss. It is well known that smell is often connected to memory, therefore you should consider including aromatic plants like herbs and spices in your sensory garden paradise.   If you are a more visual type, here’s something for you too. There are plants with different colours, blooms and leaves. You might want to sample various fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices grown in nature. Having a sensory garden is such an exceptional experience, and if you haven’t felt that yet, then the best is to experience it by yourself. It will revive all your senses and bring you closer to nature. Projects like this pretty much require professional assistance so you can contact landscapers and book your sensory garden installation in no time.
