A sensory garden is a garden area which is designed to stimulate all five of the senses. This can create a relaxing and comforting environment for children and adults alike, especially those who are suffering with mental illness and disabilities.
Our 5 senses consist of sight, smell, sound, touch and taste. All of these are important as they send information to the brain to help us understand the world around us and keep us safe.
There are accessible sensory gardens out there which you are able to visit courtesy of charities such as Tree of Hope, which are amazing, but some people are unable to travel to these gardens on a regular basis, so why not have a go as creating your very own.
Gardening is a rewarding activity, which can be beneficial to the mind and body, having mobility problems may make gardening seem like a challenge. Whether you have trouble kneeling, achy joints or use a wheelchair, gardening is still a hobby that you can enjoy. There are many ways in which you can adapt your garden to make it accessible to everyone.
