Green fences provide instant privacy
Various factors are important when it comes to selecting the right garden fence. You don’t want to be bothered by your neighbours who can peek into your garden. A green fence comes in handy here. The Green Screens for example are Hedera screens which are fully grown. Because they are fully grown, you can not look through them and you’ll have instant privacy. The Green Screens are available in panels with different sizes. The hedges are available in 1 meter, 1.80 meter, 2.00 meter, 2.20 meter and 3 meter. As the average man and woman are becoming taller, the Green Screens of 2 meter are becoming more and more common. A green fence as a garden screen offers a lot of privacy and because they are already pre-grown in the glashouse, you immediately have a natural green garden fence.
Fast and easy to install
In addition to the fact that a fence should provide sufficient privacy, it is also important that the installation is easy. A Green Screen is anchored with posts and brackets. One does not have to wait until the hedge is fully grown, you can immediately enjoy a natural fully-grown hedge.
Green fences require little maintenance
The maintenance of a green fence is not difficult. A fully grown green fence needs little to no maintenance. Sufficient water must be given in the first year and the hedge must be pruned once every year to maintain the shape. The hedge will automatically grow into a sturdy garden fence. A natural garden fence also lasts longer than a wood fence since wood is subject to wear. This means that a wooden fence has to be replaced faster than a green fence. In the long run, a green garden fence is therefore more economical.
Sustainable green fence
In line with the previous benefit, a green garden fence is more sustainable compared to a wood fence. Not only does it last longer than a wooden fence, Mobilane’s Green Screens are also produced in a sustainable way. The hedge is also grown in a biodegradable container made of coconut fibres.
Provides a healthier environment
A green garden fence contributes to creating a healthier environment. The leaves capture 40-60% of particulate matter, which filters the air. It also absorbs rainwater and provides cooling in hot periods. Green Screens can be used to create a certain atmosphere. Nature lovers can give the garden a natural look by using a green garden screen.
Contributes to biodiversity
It is also important that the use of a green garden fence contributes to biodiversity. This living fence ensures that animals such as hedgehogs can move through the fence. It can also serve as shelter, living space and even as food for animals. Birds can, for example, make a bird nest in the hedge but you can also put a birdhouse yourself in the green hedge. With this, you not only contribute to your own life, but also to the lives of animals.
Benefits of green fences
