A new sensory garden for the children of the Deanery Primary School in Walmley, Sutton Coldfield, has been unveiled by Chase Homes.
The new garden provides the children with plants, ornaments and special features to awaken their senses.
Wind chimes, herbs, water features, pebbled areas and a wide range of vividly coloured flowers are just some of the many different elements that Chase has included within the garden.
Jonathan Flint, managing director of Chase Homes, said the initiative was not part of a 106 agreement, which means a developer is obliged to 'give something back' to the community.
He said: "Having just started on site at Royal Park House, a scheme of nine luxury apartments in Sutton Coldfield and having recently sold out of our development of twenty new homes in Walmley, we were keen to give something back to the local community and felt the most worthwhile route was via the school.
"Chase lays great emphasis on the landscaping of its sites and ensuring that the houses we build blend in with their surroundings, so, in approaching the school we wanted to give them something aesthetically pleasing, yet of true benefit to the children and the sensory garden seems to answer this."
Nursery teacher Kirsty Cullen said: "We are delighted with the new garden - not only has it created an attractive feature for the school but it is a very useful interactive learning facility for the children which helps them to discover their senses and broaden their imagination.
"One of the many interesting aspects to the garden is that it has been designed to change with the seasons so it will remain interesting all year round."
