Coppiplatz is the central neighborhood park within the new garden city Neugraben- Vogelkamp. A park for all those who cannot call a green backyard their own. This neighborhood park stands in tradition of the art and crafts garden movement with modern approach, which is the use of the coppicing method. Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management which exploits the capacity of many species of trees to put out new shoots from their stump or roots if cut down. The layout of the park design comes with a dedicated selection of plants that have very attractive leaves and shoots, in their shape as well as in their autumn color. The park needs very low maintenance to shine out of itself and sets an significant sign for future park development.
