Tips for Designing a School Sensory Garden
Consider these tips for designing and installing your sensory garden:
Choose the right location and design: A sensory garden can be any size, shape and design. Ensure that your garden design and materials meet your requirements for the intended use of your sensory site. Consider what type of students you have that will use the space, and plan accordingly, for example, if you have children in wheelchairs, you need to make wider pathways.
Incorporate all the senses: A professional garden designer can show you creative ways to engage the five senses that are fun, inviting and simple. Raised planters are ideal for school gardens as they are low maintenance make an impressive visual impact when filled with various shades of green. You can incorporate scented flowers and herbs to stimulate smell. Stone pavers and timber beams are ideal for touch as they can be rough, smooth or grooved and are easy to install as pathways or decks. You can plant tall trees that make a sound in the wind or hang wind chimes for children to hear.
Think about maintenance: Ensure that your garden is low maintenance to minimise the need for care over the holidays. Alternatively, if you have senior students at your school, you can consider a work experience program where they help to maintain the sensory garden.
