CLAN Sensory Garden

TINTO supported CLAN Cancer Support with the design of its new sensory garden.

The team at CLAN wanted to create a relaxing and tranquil place outside for their clients to spend time with family and friends. This is now an accessible space with wheelchair access, that enables the local charity to expand its wellbeing activities.

We worked alongside the CLAN team to design this beautiful and inclusive space, and we achieved exactly what they were hoping for. A colourful, fragrant and peaceful garden at their facility on Westburn Road. A mix of different materials were used to achieve this look, including reclaimed wood, and grey and terracotta paving, as well as a water feature that was also included in the design.

As part of our collaborative design process, we first created an initial sketch proposal for the client, so they could review and comment on the design. Then, using our 3D visualisation technology, we creating a 'fly-through' video, offering the CLAN team a really good insight into what the sensory garden would look like, and giving them full confidence in the design.

A detailed design schedule was prepared so that the client could easily work with landscape contractors to implement the final design.


This project has resulted in a rejuvenated outdoor space for CLAN service users and their families visiting the centre, as well as those staying in CLAN Haven while attending Aberdeen hospitals for treatment.

With a warm and inviting atmosphere, the garden now features raised beds and improved paving, ensuring accessibility for everyone, as well as an attractive new layout with secluded seating areas, and a wonderful variety of flowers and plants to stimulate the senses.
