Sensory & Nature
Our range of sensory & nature products will help you to develop your own sensory, growing and nature areas within your own setting. Don’t be put off if you only have a very small area within your school, nursery or pre-school. The effective use of space and our bespoke design skills ensure we can tailor a solution for you. To create a complete sensory area include items that stimulate all the senses; sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste.
Here are just a few examples:
Sight: Raised planters with trellis to rear to grow a variety of colourful plants and climbers. Evergreen trees will create impact all year round.
Touch: whether plants, different surface types, timber, pebbles, stones or glass, a variety of different feeling items can be included to stimulate the touch sense.
Smell: Flowers, shrubs and herbs that are highly scented in raised timber planters for ease of growing and maintenance are perfect for the smell sense.
Hearing: A water feature is often the best way to stimulate the hearing sense but if that is not a practical solution, equally as popular are a range of outdoor musical instruments such as chimes or a simple rainwheel to create the sound of falling rain while you spin the wheel.
Taste: This sense is most commonly stimulated by the growing of fruit and vegetables.
