Landscape design for the public spaces around the sports facilities and community buildings, specifying hardy, drought-tolerant plants. Care is taken by the main contractor to protect large trees with historic value. The landscape design will pay tribute to the footprint of the old Rec Centre building by installing grass blocks to off-set the textures of the surrounding paving in the courtyard.
