Mobilane’s Living Hoardings have been installed at Ponders End in Enfield as regeneration work takes place following the 2011 riots. The council has leased the Living Hoardings for three years to help create an aesthetically pleasing, yet secure, solution for enclosing the site while building work is completed.
Planting the 70sq m hoarding has the same impact on reducing pollutants as three full-sized city trees but takes up a fraction of the space. They are made of ivy, delivered in bio-degradable troughs which are then fitted to the base of the hoarding panels with roots positioned behind the panel to protect them. The watering system is automatically controlled through a dripper system through which fertilizer is also added when needed. There is no need for a power supply as it is all self-contained.
