I have recently moved to Taunton to be nearer my family. One of my daughters has 3 boys, the youngest who is now 4, is autistic, non verbal and has sensory processing disorder. I have taken over a 2 bedroomed Victorian terraced house that has been untouched since the 1980's and is currently ongoing a transformation which I am undertaking myself with help from various tradesmen I have sourced through MyBuilder. The garden has been very neglected over the years, and although it is small I very much want to turn it into a sensory garden for my grandson to enjoy, along with the rest of the family.
I have made a start by removing the ugly overgrown shelter and old shed (see photo) and am replacing this with a little summerhouse. This is as far as I have got. I'm not really sure where to start, and I really need help with careful design for this small space and specific type of garden and choice of plants etc.
As I was doing some research the email arrived from MyBuilder about this garden competition, and so I thought I would have a go. Nothing ventured nothing gained. It would be so wonderful to have some input from people who actually know what they are doing to create this special garden for a very special child to enjoy with his brothers and cousins.
