The main focus of our design was on creating a garden that would stimulate the senses; a garden of colour, light,
movement, textures, sounds and scent. The design allows for movement through a variation of spaces with shifting
views and experiences. The sound of running water, sedum for tactile sensory, plants that attracts a lot of butterflies
and other pollinators into the garden that create an interest for the residents. The plants also give an ecological
aspect to the gardens function. Raised beds allow the residents to interact with the plants in the garden and
wheelchair friendly planting beds allow for vegetable and flower growing. The residents have reacted very
positively to the garden and have even started looking after it as one of their activities. We hope that this project will
inspire similar investment in green spaces around other schools, care homes and other community buildings!
