When considering garden design in relation to disabilities, what sensory recommendations could be incorporated into the space?

Ponds and water features can be a great addition for touch and sound feedback but can be a safety hazard so you’ll need to ensure that the feature has appropriate safety measures in place. Flowers with a strong scent, such a lavender and gardenia can also be fantastic for sensory feedback. Raised flower beds with bright, vibrant plants such as Red Dahlias can again be useful for bringing colour to eye level. When considering plants, it can be a good idea to have edible herbs and spices growing in the garden, as well as plants that create a noise when the wind flows through them such as bamboo.
