Marnebek School Sensory Garden

Peek-a-boo wall for dual-sided interaction Marnebek School in Cranbourne, Victoria, recently constructed a new and exciting Sensory Garden as part of a further upgrade of their outdoor play space. The garden is connected to the Sensory Room at Marnebek.

Jeavons worked with the staff and students at Marnebek to develop a unique and highly detailed concept design for the space. The design is loosely based on ideas from the books “Imagine” by Alison Lester and “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.

Renown Kindergarten Playspace Rejuvenation

The outdoor playspace at Renown Kinder in South Yarra has been rejuvenated, seamlessly incorporating new playspaces and gardens with the existing play structures and vegetation.

A sand and water play area with a pebble creek bed (consisting of loose and mortared pebbles) has been installed, along with a water pump. Granite rockery with moss still intact gives the pebble creek an extra element of character and fun. Also incorporated into the playspace is a multi-purpose outdoor learning space with an amphitheater seat.
