Masking

Strong plant and water sounds have a good ability to mask traffic noise in green areas and parks near roads, especially in combination with noise reduction.The traffic noise is mixed up with and attributed to natural, more relevant and positively charged elements. Visual aspects are also important. A straight noise barrier raises associations to the road and the large and fast scale available there. An organic and human scale in the form, provides a naturalness that makes it easier to accept the masking.
