Abstract

Green spaces such as public parks and intimate gardens have been associated for more than a century with pleasures, providing a green oasis in the city. Making green spaces accessible to as many people as possible is now mainstream thinking in design and management. Efforts are now often channeled more into providing green spaces, which are accessible to everyone who wishes to use them. The basic idea of green spaces must be accessible, user friendly, safe, offer both comfort and maximum enjoyment. This research is dedicated specially for the visually impaired people. The purpose of this paper is to investigate and identify the characteristics in creating intimate green spaces for the disabled to enjoy. The end product of this research is intended to provide information on different type of aromatic plants, highlighting their medicinal value and use in designs for the visually impaired people.
