The exterior of the circle provides a comfortable working height for those standing up and unites gardeners to socialize through mutual interest. Hanging plants are great to grow on the outside of the circle maximizing flower blooms or vegetable patches such as tomatoes or melons! Blooming plants protrude from the garden creating more accessible garden space.

The system is water efficient and collects rainwater too. The Planter Reservoir can be filled via hosepipe and can go without water for months, good for long School Holidays. This innovative accessible garden is low maintenance, makes gardening more enjoyable and is built to last.

Sensory Gardening For Children And Teens In Special Needs Schools

Sensory Gardens are ideal for the practice of Horticultural therapy for children with limited mobility or learning disabilities. Children learn new skills, have fun, socialize and develop self-confidence by spending time tending plants and growing their own food. The Green Circle Garden can improve physical and mental functions of children with dementia, often allowing them to perform at their highest ability. Educational Activities in Science and Nature can open scope for creativity in children such as planning and designing their garden compositions and working on arts and crafts activities posted regularly on our blog.
