Hedera Screens provide Leicester City Centre Social Distancing Greenery
14/09/2021

With bespoke planter boxes containing 1.0M living ivy Green Screens... Leicester City Council commissioned Hedera Screens to work with them to provide planter boxes containing living ivy screening, to enforce COVID-19 social distancing across the city. This was timed beautifully to coincide with lifting of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions for people of Leicester, in line with the rest of the country on 3rd August. People visiting the City will be greeted with beautifully displayed planter boxes installed with 1.0M (H) iviy green screens, which not only look aesthetically pleasing but also have a huge number of health benefits as well as the providing necessary social distancing measures. Hedera Screens have been installing the same planter boxes in many schools, owing to their scientifically proven benefits of filtering harmful pollutants around the school perimeters. Not only do the ivy Green Screens enable vegetation to be introduced into places where other such green infrastructure is lacking in city centres, they are improving the ‘look’ of the space but most importantly the planted greenery have been proven to reduce air pollution considerably. They can be placed much closer to emission sources such as roadways and streets, providing an immediate impact for the people living, working and visiting Leicester. Ivy Green Screens can influence biodiversity and capture micro-pollutants thereby improving air quality, wellbeing and human health which is of utmost importance right now as we are in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Statistics have shown that over the lockdown the pollution levels dropped as cars were not being used as much so it is great to be able to have another positive way to reduce the pollution that we are subject to in our daily lives. Hedera Screens install green screens across the whole of the UK for businesses, councils, schools and individuals. We have been working to reduce pollution and create more green spaces since 2007 and continue to go from strength to strength and are very proud to be involved in this initiative.
