Two species, Austrian Pine and Colorado Spruce, were planted during the construction of the Sensory Garden in 1993. These specimens were planted in Beds 18, 19 and 20 which surrounded the garden on all four sides. Planting has been determined to have been more dense on the north and west sides which is still indicated by the current trees in place. For historical perspective we've enclosed photos of the original plantings and two from the late 1990's looking towards the Schoolhouse Entry which is considered the North Hill or North Berm.
