If you have visited or passed by Scholars Village in Folkestone recently, you may have noticed our ‘Living Hoarding’ at the front of the development, which has recently been installed by New Build Landscapes.
These ivy-covered screens may look simple, but in additional to their aesthetic appeal this green fencing generates a multitude of environmental benefits.
According to environmental solutions experts, Urban Greening, ivy screens absorb ambient noise much better than other types of fencing, resulting in noise reduction on construction sites. They also supress dust particles to improve air quality, reduce temperature and CO2 levels in urban areas, increase biodiversity and discourage vandalism. Great news for residents living on and around the development!
The installation of Living Hoarding at Scholars Village has earned ‘Innovation’ status under the Considerate Constructors scheme, owing to the fact that, unlike similar projects, this hoarding is portable and therefore can be moved to the area of the site which would most benefit from the screens.
