Our species of the month is Ivy (Hedera Helix) which is most popularly used in our Living Screens. Hedera helix ‘Hibernica’, alternatively known as Atlantic or Irish Ivy, has a dark green, glossy leaf with defined lighter veining and a paler underside when mature. However, the new growth and flowering shoots are a paler green and have a more oval rather than defined multi-tipped shape. Salt tolerant, this particular variety is ideal for coastal areas.
Ivy panels provide instant and effective living green screens. They are increasingly used by homeowners, contractors and local authorities to provide rigid, secure and evergreen barriers. Ivy fencing panels are low maintenance and easy to install, made up of a non-invasive form of Ivy grown on rigid galvanised mesh to form Ivy screens. As well as being much more attractive than traditional fencing, they also improve with time and support an array of wildlife.
There are large numbers of possible uses for instant Ivy in both public and private situations. Some of the more common uses are:
• secure barriers around gardens and estates.
• covers for walls and buildings to make bare surfaces more attractive
• divisions within car parks, estates, campsites etc.
• visual screens at roundabouts or to hide eyesores
• to prevent graffiti
But our screens don’t have to come in Ivy, we have recently expanded our range to include some more popular species such as other varieties of Ivy including Woerner, Green Ripple, White Ripple and Goldchild. We also sell Pyracantha, Beech, Hornbeam and Euonymus Darts Blanket.
We recently had an order for our Euonymus Darts Blanket screens and look how amazing they look! We love how our customer has used a mixture of fence panels and screens to create a natural but modern look.
