There are many reasons to consider bringing plants into your living or working environment. Plants improve air quality by photosynthesising and releasing oxygen into the air, and also act as biofilters for impurities. Acoustics are also enhanced as plants absorb sound and help with diffraction. Plants promote better health & wellness through a spiritual connection to nature which is missing in the modern concrete jungle.

Living Green Screens for use as Living Office dividers and or exterior Living Screens

This patented Mobilane system comprises a metal grid that is entirely covered with vegetation. These plants are planted in compost in a biodegradable pot, which is attached to the bottom of the metal grid. The biodegradable pot is made from coconut fibres held together by natural latex. After planting the Green Screen, the entirely organic planters degrade within one to two years and the plants will root in the surrounding subsoil.
