Abstract: In urban life, humans’ longing for nature increases persistently. Sound, visualizations, smell are perceived as a whole. Plants have an important role in nature. Plants’ colors, textures, smell can be both stimulating and relaxing. Nowadays, to strengthen the bond between humans and nature, designers integrate green into their projects because nature’s positive impact on humans is a well-known fact. This article examines the sensory gardens as a way of natural therapy, the historical process, design criteria and some case studies.
