A responsive design to disability user is an unpopular design implementation for landscape design in Indonesia. Even a space which supposed to function for disability user, it cannot aid them to have the experience without obstacle. A sensory garden concept would be applied in the research to learn its impact on finding the result. Therefore, this research would propose basic pattern and colour to be applied in sensory garden. Combining an experimental design on this design-based research and systematic review, the final output is expected to be a base pattern and colour solution in proposing an inclusive landscape design. In an urban development, it is essential to have awareness of welfare of disability people. This research finds that applying geometric, repetitive pattern and overlaying colours on a sensory garden would increase the focus and attention of disability users with mental and physical impairment. This knowledge is not limited to be applied in a sensory garden, but also in a landscape project design in general. As this study also have a purpose to aid practitioners in understanding an inclusive landscape design.
