A green boost for a garden village
Keeping true to the garden village philosophy with hedera screens
A new green neighbourhood, Vreewijk, is now well and truly on the map. With its beautiful array of hedera screens, the new district now boasts the screens as part of the regeneration project. The tired, run-down 100-year old buildings have undergone a green transformation. The project, commissioned and completed by the housing company Rhea Wonen, has replaced and refreshed 56 derelict buildings in to total.
A kilometre of hedging
As important as the improvement of its green credentials was the regeneration’s adherence to the landscape’s historical value and character. Garden villages created across The Netherlands in the 1920’s are characterised by housing blocks and a large communal garden, with a mass of green elements throughout. Mobilane maintained and added to this garden blueprint by delivering a 1 kilometre stretch of Green Screens at 1.8m in height and planted with Hedera helix Woerner.
Fully-grown and instant
The fully grown Green Screens give the newly-built district an instant green punch, with the added benefits of improved privacy for its inhabitants and local community.
This natural green streak was further punctuated in the winter with the inclusion of Ligustrum, Tilia cordata ‘Greenspire’, Quercus robur ‘Fastigiata Koster’, Tilia x europaea ‘Euchlora’, Acer rubrum ‘Karpick’) and Acer platanoides ‘Crimson King’. The proud owners moved in at the end of 2016
