I'm sure its all been said but wow tattianna..... I have seeds if u want some.... Have you thought of bambooThy ou can great some great non clumping ones these days and the sound, shade, patterns are amazing... Also did you see I love my garden lasts night for 2 blind children who only see shades..... they used achillea cloth of gold and lavender and orange crocosmia all contrasting but they worked so well... Also they had a living wall I admit that it would need watering but to follow is the pic of a pallet version I saw at Hampton court this year .... Could you fill it with drought resistant plants and maybe mount it on the fence at a level your daughter could touch it ? don't hesitate to shout if I can donate any seeds etc.... Also I am buying ferns for a new woodland garden im sure I have ordered too many ( as usual) am happy if I have to donate them to your amazing daughter in her new home

 As I said pallet planting ( I am just doing a strawberry one) dead easy drilled plank on the bottom and weed barrier matting on the back! cheap yet oh so effective


Hi Tattiana  Can't wait to see whare you go with this, Just wish I lived a little or even a lot! closer than I do so I could help. Have loads of seeds so would quite happily pass on anything you fancy. Do you have "Freecycle" in your area? Its an online website where you offer something and can then ask for money involved. You could get free plants paving even possible offers of manual assistance if you let them know what you are doing.

Made a sensory garden for a special needs school next to my kids primary school many years ago. You have many suggestions for plants with smell and sound...rustling grasses etc. Can your daughter use her arms at all? If yes then think of touch too. Soft, fluffy plants like artemesias. This is one of my favourites 

Stachys byzantina aka lambs ears...because thats just what they feel like.

Sagina subulata, mounds of softness. 

Plant flowers that produce seed heads that can be rattled...poppies, nigella and Aquilegia spring to mind.

You have many scented plants mentioned already but one you really must include is Aloysia triphylla...lemon verbena it is the best smell ever!
