How To Create a Sensory Garden

How To Create a Sensory Garden

With a bit of thoughtful planning, a garden of any size and location could become a sensory garden.

If you would like to have a sensory garden, but don’t know where to start, why not call in to the Tobermore paving centre? You can have a walk around their display patio areas to see different products and find out about their design services. Tobermore can design your garden and recommend some local paving contractors who may be able to do the work for you.

Curved paths are easily created using Tegula paving, leading to perhaps a Historic courtyard style paved circle with a contrasting border. Planting around this area will be given instant height and density if it is in a raised bed. This could be easily constructed from the Secura retaining wall system Secura retaining wall system which is very easy to build without the need for mortar or a brick layer.

The sound of water also has a very relaxing effect, so it might be a good idea to find somewhere for a small water feature. If you have space, you might consider a small pond. A path around the pond could be created from Historic flags set in a gravel border to give a soft, natural feel. A small paved area around the pond could also be incorporated for a bench seat.
