Liz Lake Associates was commissioned by Mersea Homes to prepare landscape proposals for 2.9 hectares of residential development, with a pocket park as a focal point providing a calm space that would serve a communal garden for residents and the wider community.
The layout of the paths and seating areas, the repeated minimal palette of plant combinations, the species choice and positioning of trees, all combine to provide a sense of visual harmony and calm.
