The sensory garden: a green space for the five senses

The sensory garden on the blog by

Generally, when we think about a garden, we think about all the colours and hues created by the combination of different plants and flowers. A beautiful garden is indeed a pleasure for the eyes, and chromatic combinations can give emotions that are hard to express. However, if you think about it for a moment, you will realize that walking in a garden is a multi sensory experience that involves not only sight, but also touch, hearing, taste and smell. If it’s true that sight is the most stimulated sense, it is also true that we can touch the leaves of the plants, we can hear the rustle caused by the wind, we can smell the scent of flowers or taste fruits. The sensory garden is designed to give visitors a unique experience that involves sight and all the other senses and that will help them re-establish a contact with nature.

A multi sensory path

The sensory garden can stimulate all the five senses and can help psychophysical well-being. It is not a case if it is used as a therapy for people with disabilities or patients with Alzheimer. A sensory garden needs careful planning and everything has to be in its right place. Plants and flowers are selected and arranged in order to create a path for the five senses. There are, for example, many combinations of flowers of different colours, which are fundamental for chromotherapy. The sensory garden is full of fragrant flowers and plants that help stimulate smell, reawakening emotions, sensations and positive thoughts.

The sensory garden: rediscover the contact with nature!

Sensory gardens are green spaces in which you can relax, meditate, and rediscover the contact with nature, a contact that we are losing more and more. If you want to try a unique multi sensory experience, plan a visit to a sensory garden near you!

Rolls of turf, why not!

Rolls of turf on the blog by

Rolls of turf are a practical and quick solution for everyone who wants to have a perfect lawn in their garden in no time, without having to sow grass seeds and wait until the grass grows. Ideal for private gardens, but also for big parks, rolled turf is a great choice with an interesting price/quality ratio. With rolled turf you will be able to save a considerable amount of time and limit the work which is needed to achieve the lawn.

Characteristics of rolled turf

If you are skeptical about using rolls of turf for your garden as an alternative to traditional sowing methods, probably you think we are talking about artificial turf. Rolled turf is natural and is cultivated for a year or more. Only when the grass has reached the ideal height the lawn is cut, rolled up and delivered to the buyer, ready to be laid on the soil. For a homogeneous and regular lawn, you will have to hoe the soil in order to prepare it. This is just a little work if you compare it with traditional sowing. Furthermore, as the grass is already one year old, you can lay it down whenever you want, not only in spring or autumn.

Rolls of turf and maintenance

Once you have laid the turf on your garden, you will just have to wait some days before you can step on the grass. During the first weeks, you will have to water the grass frequently. Then, when the lawn will take roots, you will diminish the frequency. Obviously, you will have to cut the grass regularly, just like you would do with a common lawn.
