Liverpool Gardens has always been the town centre’s ‘Green Lung’ and provides pleasure to many.
A major re-modelling of the landscape at this important Town centre open space was undertaken over the winter of 2003. The Council chose to invest the £100,000 Shaw bequest, from a selection of other high profile projects, on creating a high quality contemporary landscape within Liverpool Gardens.
The design and build project was undertaken by Continental Landscapes Ltd, with a specialist unit from their Belgian arm.
The innovative design was selected because of its use of local materials in the new retaining wall and bench seat whose clear flowing lines, together with cloud pruned Escallonia, reflect the linear aspect of the site and the Regency architecture alongside.
The design connects the space with the adjacent shopping area, combining themes of movement through with more intimate seating areas to provide a calm green space for a break from the surrounding busy retail and business areas.
The new design maximises this small green lung’s maximum potential, and gives pleasure to many.
