Meristem were at the forefront of the Mayor of London’s new drive to clean up our city’s air last week - installing green screens, as well as some other planting, in three schools around London during half term.

Wyvil Primary School in South Lambeth, Robin Hood Junior School in Sutton, and Christopher Hatton Primary School in Holborn are now the happy beneficiaries of our urban greening, providing a cleaner and healthier environment for their pupils to learn and play in.

4 Hammersmith Parklets Launched this week!

4 Hammersmith Parklets Launched this week!

This week we launched 4 of our new community Parklets on Hammersmith Grove, 2 of them even had 3m high Green Pergolas.

Combining trees and plants with wooden benches and cycle parking, these 4 10m by 2.5m Parklets are designed to encourage cycling, improve air quality and make the street greener for residents, shoppers and businesses. They’re also part of a borough-wide plan to support and encourage biodiversity in the area.

Marylebone Car Free Street Party

Over a hundred school children from Halcyon School enjoyed some amazing BMX skills, a bicycle smoothie and music powered by pedals during Marylebone car free day, hosted by Marylebone LEN and Sustrans.

The focus of the day was sustainability, air quality, helping the locals reclaim the street and to encourage cycling and walking.

We were delighted our Parklet was well used and helped turn the grey street to green. The day promoted social interaction, while showing what you can do with the absence of cars. 

Are you planning a car free event or want to hire our Parklet for the day? Call us!
