Verdant Viaduct - Borough Market Living Wall

Come and see our latest living wall project at Borough Market.

This living wall is part of Better Bankside’s Urban Greening and Placemaking Initiatives which aim to improve the public realm in the local area.

The wall helps to reclaim a grey and unused space in the one of the largest and oldest food markets in London, as well as acting as a natural air filter.

We removed a section of a living wall that was struggling and added 82 plants to the main wall to give it a new lease of life. The existing plants were covered in dust and pollution particulates which all had to be cleaned.

We planted a combination of convolvulus arvensis, erysimum (‘Bowles’s Mauve), liriope muscaris, asplenium scolopendrium, polystichum tsus-simense and alpine flowering plants, including gypsophila and dianthus freynii. These were put in to complement the existing scheme of sarcococca ruscifolia, hedera (ivy) and fatsia japonica.

The project challenges included safely carrying out the works at a height of 6m next to a busy pub and in an area with high footfall.

We are very pleased by the outcome and looking forward to it thriving in the months ahead.

Please contact us for further information on our latest projects.

 

 

 

North Finchley Living Wall

Meristem were delighted to work on this exciting greening project in North Finchley. A substrate gravity-fed closed living wall system was installed to create a beautiful aesthetic focal point to the building. In addition to this a bespoke hanging planter system was designed and installed to form a vertical trailing effect of greenery through two floors.

Internal greening solutions are a fantastic way to maximise oxygenation and absorption of PM10s (small particles and dust) and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) found in everyday items such as carpets, paint and cleaning products. Internal vegetation can improve wellbeing, productivity and performance and health whilst improving the internal environment.

Clapham Living Wall

Our latest living wall installation has created beautiful backdrop to a residential garden in Clapham that draws the eye through the house. A mixture of ferns, erysimum, convolvulus, liriope muscari and festuca glauca elijah blue were used to bring striking colours  to an urban back garden. A swirl of erysimum bowles mauve was planted in the centre of the wall to create a swathe of purple flowers which will be out in full bloom come spring.
