CONTEXT Landscape Design were commissioned to prepare the landscape master plan for a 135 hectare residential development on degraded farmland incorporating major ESD initiatives and the re-establishment of Cumberland Woodland Plain species in north western Sydney.
A high quality, contemporary landscape approach to residential development design was achieved which incorporated a of community identity with a strong sense of image and place.
A memorable and strong landscape framework of open spaces, drainage corridors and garden settings using the Cumberland Woodland Plain and cultural plantings created a cohesive and identifiable “Woodland Community” while environmental innovation and water management design were common threads that underpinned the design concepts for the master plan.
