Can you support us?

Donate to Tree of Hope today so that we can continue to help children

Sensory gardens often provide many children who suffer from a serious illness, disability or ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) with a much-needed comfort, tranquillity, sensory stimulation and also, education. However, sensory gardens are often inaccessible to families at home. This is where Tree of Hope comes in.

What is a sensory garden?

A sensory garden is an outdoor space that will help stimulate a child’s senses and can be a very therapeutic and calming place for children to learn about outdoor space.

How do I build a sensory garden?

When building a sensory garden for your child it is often beneficial to think about all the senses, or what your child would benefit from. We work with many suppliers including Smirthwaite, SpaceKraft and Timotay that can help you design the perfect sensory garden for your child’s needs.

Think about…

When building a sensory garden it is important to think about all of the senses include:

  • Sight – Include varying shapes, colours and pieces of equipment
  • Feel – Different textures and surface including the addition of water features
  • Sound – This could include musical instruments, different surfaces to walk on or running water
  • Smell – A variety of flowers and trees that are easy to grow and excel at different times of the year
  • Taste – If beneficial a small fruit or veg patch can help children explore new senses of taste and texture
