Featuring the fascias of four contemporary terraced dwellings with garden frontage, each space reflects the residents' diverse lifestyles, aspirations and practical needs, including a couple keen to maximise their space to 'grow their own' and a young family who need a parking space but have offset this by creating a stunning vertical garden.

Marshalls' permeable paving system is also displayed. This allows rainfall to percolate directly into the subsoil rather than running off to drains. In one garden this is harvested to replenish its water feature.

In the street, ornamental pear trees are chosen for their pollution tolerance and long season of interest. Even the public paving is specially formulated to improve air quality. With its unique blend of components, Marshalls Noxer Paving makes it the greener choice to pave our streets, towns and cities.
