Sensory Garden Plants, Flowers, Style and Planting Ideas

Growing your own plants can be a very rewarding experience. It can also be challenging and time-consuming. But with the right amount of time, effort and knowledge, you can grow an amazing sensory garden in your backyard.


Sensory Garden Plants - Style and Planting Ideas

Creating a sensory garden allows your child to experiment with different textures, such as soil, rocks, water, mud, seeds, new sprouts, leaves, roots, and even weeds. 

It also teaches children perseverance and patience. 

There are different plants that evoke each of the five senses.

In this video, you'll see the different design styles, plants and planting ideas that you need to create a stunning sensory garden for your children.

What is a sensory garden?

A sensory garden is an outdoor space that includes plants with textures, colours, shapes and smells that stimulate all of the senses. 

It is a garden for all children but even more so for those with autism spectrum disorder, learning challenges, and behaviour difficulties. 

This garden gives children the opportunity to explore the world and learn about plants. They can enjoy it without any distractions, just them and their senses.

Rock garden ideas for small gardens and slopes

A small rock garden could be a standout feature in your rather green area. Create rock gardens to give prominence to areas that do not appear attractive such as slopes.

These types of gardens are low maintenance where low-demanding plants tend to thrive. 

There are many rock garden designs in practice, but here are photos of the stunning plants and planting style used at the Kew Rock Garden in London. They are great inspiration for both small and large rock gardens,
