A green walk on the wild side in Woking with Mobilane Green ScreensMobilane Living Green Screens
- Woking, United Kingdom
Residents, customers and visitors to Woking High Street will be enjoying a new natural walkway from this May with the installation of a 75m living wall from Mobilane. The Mobilane Green Screens have been placed along the length of the Woking Train Station’s exterior wall as part of the Council’s green commitments.
Nature and history combined
Complementing other green initiatives in the transformation of the town’s Albion Square, the ivy screens now form a naturally green frame for the town’s iconic mural that depicts life along High Street in Edwardian times.
With a mix of species for interest and colour, the wall will not only attract insects and wildlife to an otherwise grey and urban part of town, but the screens will exercise their prowess in the improvement of air quality, as their foliage aids the trapping and capturing of harmful pollutants from passing and stationary traffic in the busy street.
Mobilane UK was appointed to install the ivy screens, which are watered by an innovative drip line irrigation system. The week-long installation took place at the end of April 2019 and attracted local and regional media news interest.
