Air Quality Benefits:
A recent study by the GLA and Defra at a school in Kensington showed:
‘The ivy screen led to a decrease in the pollution concentrations on the playground side of the screen by up to 36% and 41% for NO2 and PM10, respectively’.
The living ivy wall also increases biodiversity as it attracts insects, bees, butterflies and birds. Ivy screens help to reduce noise pollution, acting as a vegetative acoustic barrier. Offering an attractive, aesthetic alternative to walls and fencing, turning grey spaces to green.
Little maintenance is required with drip line irrigation installed to help the ivy thrive and only yearly pruning needed.
If you have a school or building in a polluted area that can benefit from our green screens then contact us.
