Bespoke Green Screen Planters at School Provide Cleaner Air and Privacy

Meristem returned to St Peter’s Eaton Square C of E School in the heart of London for a second phase of Pollution Reducing Green Screens to improve air quality in the playground for its pupils, staff, parents and visitors. 

Meristem installed 25m of 1m high Hedera Helix Woerner Green Screens in bespoke powder-coated steel planters. The green screens are watered by an automatic drip line irrigation system. The bespoke planters created to fit the curved wall and between the buttresses were 3m from the ground. 

We also added an an internal Live Picture filled with 6 fern varieties at the top of the stairs where it can enjoy maximum visibility from the children and staff. The children have taken an active interest in the installations of the green screens and particularly the LivePicture and are involved in its watering and spritzing.  Its introduction has improved their learning environment through its cleaner air and biophilic benefits, encouraging their interest in their environment, air quality and how plants can help – inside and out.

St Peter’s is located in an area of London that has high levels of air pollution from the volume of traffic in and around Victoria mainline station and Victoria National Bus station. The screens, LivePicture and installation were all funded by the Mayor’s Office and Grosvenor Estates. The school is now protected by over 40m of Green Screens.
