Meristem Green Screens to surround construction sites

Meristem Green Screens to surround construction sites

8 Build Ltd are trialling our Green Screens along the hoarding of their construction sites, with the view to expand to their other sites if successful.

Our green screens help to reduce both air and noise pollution making it a healthier and safer environment.

Neal's Yard Planters

Our latest project added a little bit of greenery right in heart of Covent Garden. The brief was to come up with a wall mounted planter design that would fit in with current aesthetic and feel of Neal's Yard.

We designed bespoke corten planters with iroko trellis' to create a naturally weathered look. Jasminoides trachelospermum was chosen to climb the trellis because of its scent, white flowers and year round interest. Carex and delicate white flowering vinca minor were also used to compliment the jasmine.

Meristem Tree Planters on our roads, a growing trend in London

The planters installed here on the junction of Rivington Street and Charlotte Road have slowed down passing traffic and made the area safer for pedestrians and locals.  Therefore we’re hoping to see more of them on our roads in London.  

They also fit in well with the London Mayor’s Transport Strategy of promoting healthy, greener, less polluted streets.  The greenery certainly helps to make the area more appealing to local residents, shoppers and patrons of the Junction pub who no longer need to be weary of speeding vehicles.

The trees we planted included olive trees and magnolia grandiflora, they were specifically selected as they are evergreen and the magnolias flowers give off a lovely aroma.  At the base of the planters we planted a variety of flowering annuals and herbs so next time the local residents are cooking lamb they are welcome to use few sprigs of Rosemary to throw in the pot!
