    2. 2. Overall Strategy <br />Given the nature of the projects we have tailored our ideas to be able to work with other groups while also reaching our key goals<br />We have focused our ideas and planning on:<br />Principally the raised beds on the right side as per map<br />Prayer tree in green area to rear of plants<br />The periphery of the raised bed area<br />
    3. 3. Primary Considerations<br />The garden should be a comfortable space for users to enjoy<br />A wide range of senses are catered for<br />Enough variety to maintain interest<br />Various forms of user interaction<br />Safe and suitable for the intended users<br />To develop plans at a reasonable and realistic cost<br />
    4. 4. Research<br />Visit to Bawnmore<br />Measurements<br />Wind<br />Noise<br />Visit to the Royal Botanical Garden, Dublin<br />Sensory Garden<br />Idea Generation and Research of those ideas<br />
    5. 5.
    6. 6. Bed 1 & 5– Getting centered<br />Zen Gardens <br />Two Zen gardens will be placed at either end of one of the small beds<br />Allows one to design their own patterns or shapes from the coloured gravel<br />
    7. 7. Zen Gardens<br />
    8. 8. Contained Zen Garden<br />Rock Gardens<br />Dry Landscape<br />Sand/Gravel represents the sea<br />Rocks/Stone represent Islands, mountains or people<br />Concentration<br />Meditation<br />Imagination<br />
    9. 9. Bed 2 - Musical Healing<br />Mirimba<br />We have sourced a ceramic mirimba which we will set up on both long sides of one of the beds<br />Allows two people to interact musically<br />Cost - €0<br /> Healing Flowers<br />The areas to the left and right of the mirimbas will display healing flowers such as: Rosemary (also used for cooking) St Johns Worth (treats anxiety and depression) Lavander (calming)<br />
    10. 10. Bed 3 Drawing Bed<br />Chalk boards for drawing/writing <br />thoughts/prayers/wishes/doodles <br />Two slates placed on the middle of either side of the bed sloping upwards to the centre (rested on rock)<br />Scented herbs on either side<br />This will utilise one of the larger sized beds<br />
    11. 11. Bed 4 (U shaped bed)Looking inside<br />Mirrored balls<br />Mirrored balls of various sizes will be placed around the bed<br />Cost - €2-15<br />Chinese Rain Chain Water feature<br />This will utilise the natural rain fall for it’s own growth and provide a beautifully interesting feature<br />Cost - €50<br />Scented flowers and various objects with interesting textures to touch will be placed around these. Details later in the presentation<br />
    12. 12. Rain Chains<br />Originated in Japan<br />Alternative to downspouts<br />Transports water to a drain or storage container<br />Can be a water feature in itself<br />Can also be used to collect water needed for other features<br />
    13. 13. Rain Chains<br />
    14. 14. Bed 4 cont… Taking in the light<br />Beautiful creeper plant for the lamp post <br />This JasminumPolyanthumlooked and smelled gorgeous and was attached to a pole. <br />Green fence material wrapped around it which the creeper could use to grow upwards.<br />It would get the lamp post out of sight and have the lights seem like they're being suspended in the air. <br />The lamp post seems out of place at the moment, particularly as its in a flower bed and this would allow it to blend more into the environment.<br />(Honeysuckle is another alternative)<br />
    15. 15. Scented flowers for beds <br />
    16. 16. Bench 1 and 2 – Phone cone<br />Phone Cone running behind benches (possibly underground)<br />Encourage user interaction<br />
    17. 17. Border – Protecting the beauty<br />The wind and outside noise prevents the space from feeling safe and enjoyable<br />We propose to put a bamboo type border are the two most exposed sides to protect the area from the wind<br />This will help us create a safe haven for our sensory garden<br /> 23.4 meters worth <br />
