Views, sounds, smells and tastes are all key to planning emotional gardens.

Sensory parks are often designed with children in mind. Attractive scents and bright colors encourage children to connect with the outside world and allow nature and plants to practice their magic by healing, educating and calming at the same time.

Although these gardens are often designed with children in mind, are we not all able to enjoy these benefits?

The paths in the garden are the first step in planning the senses. Trails should be made of material suitable for the intended audience.

If you are designing a garden for small children, avoid using pebbles or stones that can be easily swallowed or thrown away. Choose a wide, smooth, and even path for the elderly or those with limited mobility.

Slowly pave the way for the entire garden to be seen at any time, forcing the user to inspect it. The small keyhole areas on the road give people a chance to stop and relax completely surrounded by vegetation – think of seating in these places.
