These gardens are ideal for care homes, nursing homes and in our own gardens, community centres, nurseries, schools and development centres.

In the Spotlight - Sensory Garden in Carnoustie
Gardens Galore has had the pleasure of working on a number of sensory gardens projects across Scotland; each project has been equally unique and individual. We’ve chosen to highlight this sensory garden project as it brings together a variety of different elements that you’d expect to see in a sensory garden.
This sensory garden project was designed for the residents and their family and friends of the Braehill Lodge Nursing Home in Carnoustie. This particular nursing home caters for residents with dementia and sensory impairments. We spent a significant amount of time consulting with the nursing homeowner and the home’s residents to ensure that each individual’s needs were met.
We decided on a practical, user-friendly design that could be enjoyed individually as well as communally.
