How to design a sensory garden: create a soothing retreat

Erin Browne

Wondering how to design a sensory garden? Creating a yard that stimulates the five senses of sight, smell, sound, touch and taste is a fulfilling project. You will become more aware of your surroundings and your responses to them, allowing you to connect to nature. This can enhance your sense of wellbeing and promote feelings of calmness and tranquility.

When designing a sensory garden there are two possibilities in terms of layout. Either opt for a series of interactions with separate zones that stimulate each of the senses, such as sitting next to a pond or enjoying the sound of wind in the leaves. Alternatively choose a multi-sensory experience where you engage with everything simultaneously, like walking along a gravel path bordered by colorful scented plants and brushing your fingertips through the foliage.
