A landscape project developed with the residents of a housing estate in Tilbury to develop a community garden. The garden acknowledges and makes space for the diverse and contradictory demands made on limited space.

A landscape project developed with the residents of a housing estate in Tilbury to develop a community garden. The garden acknowledges and makes space for the diverse and contradictory demands made on limited space.

The design ensures both security and pleasure through an undulating landscape of shared and discrete spaces to accommodate horse riding, the under fives, robust play and sitting in the sun. The edges of the park are secured against car, bike and pony joy riding with barriers of planted gabions and other structures in order to avoid a language of fenced enclosure.

muf developed a website as a parallel, speculative investigation into the local landscape: an exploration of people's relationship to that landscape through the presence of wandering ponies.
