Cube have lead the way in sensory and special needs garden design, and have won the Community and Schools Development Award for our dementia sensory garden at St. Martin's care home in Westcliff-on-Sea.
Depending on the needs of the individual, many different features can be incorporated to make the garden accessible and stimulating. Our garden at St. Martin's includes a figure of eight rubberised pathway with no end, and helps stimulate the brain with many different coloured flowers and areas of rest.
Plants with strong scents are wonderful for visitors with impaired sight. Swings and hammocks can also be a great feature to provide a seating area which is dynamic and allows the visitor to enjoy motion. Water fountains can be used to provide a relaxing background sound, and lighting to stimulate the senses.
We are proud to be the national leaders in this design field, and enjoy finding new ways to bring the joy of a beautiful garden to those with special needs.
