Instant privacy with a sustainable boundary fence at the new residential area in Tiel
- Mobilane Green Screen
- Location: Tiel, the Netherlands
The new housing project Kop van Waal in Tiel in the Netherlands, designed by architectural firm Mulleners + Mulleners, has more than 200 Mobilane Green Screens as sustainable boundary fences. Hedera Helix ‘Woerner’ Green Screens with a height of 1.80 meter have been used. The Green Screens were installed by the Bunnik Groep. On the pond site in Tiel, BAM Wonen and Synchroon, commissioned by ‘De Groene Weerd’, have developed 107 owner-occuppied homes in 2 phases. Phase 1 has been finished and phase 2 is currently being build.
Green design by architectural firm Mulleners + Mulleners
Architectural firm Mulleners + Mulleners are active throughout the whole Netherlands in the field of architecture, urban development and landscaping and always create a design in which a harmonieus architecture with regard to the environment is aimed for. The design of Mulleners + Mulleners for the new housing project in Tiel is characterized by the light bricks and woodaccents such as fences and roof overhangs. By using this design, the whole residential area will be integrated into the landscape character of Echteldsedijk and nature area Vijverberg. In the centre of Kop van Waal, a green park is located with a creek that drains rainwater to the surrounding wadis
The nature was the main focus of the whole plan and for Mulleners + Mulleners it is always an important factor in the design. The Mobilane Green Screens fit very well in the design and have been used for many years by Mulleners + Mulleners as boundary fences. Ir. Wim Stroobach is an architect at Mulleners + Mulleners and has designed the new residential area in Tiel.
“As an architect, it gives me peace”
“The design is a collaboration of different disciplines and the houses have been designed around a green plan. The Mobilane Green Screen fits well in this design as a sustainable boundary fence because you have a direct green result and with this, you can convince the residents. If you do not immediately show how beautiful a boundary fence is and that it offers instant privacy, residents will go to the store themselves because they do not want to wait until the plants are fully grown. Since we are using the Mobilane Green Screens, we have the confidence that the visual we have in mind will be realized immediately. The fully grown Green Screens are practical, guaranteed beautiful and it just gives me peace of mind as an architect because I know that what I have in mind will also be realized”, said Ir. Wim Stroobach, architect at Mulleners + Mulleners.
Installation of the Green Screens by the Bunnik Groep
“In new housing projects or other situations we often plant young plants which takes a long time before it is fully grown. You see that at the installation of a Mobilane Green Screen you will have immediately a fully grown hedge and the visual of the end result. The Mobilane Green Screen creates a luxurious appearance and gives people instant privacy. The installation of the natural prefab panels is easy and it motivates our landscapers, a great product!”, said Erik Bisschop, executor of the Bunnik Groep.
Different types and heights
The Green Screens of Mobilane are available with different types of plants and in panels of different sizes. Have a look at the PlantGuide for an overview of all types. The heights of the Green Screens comply with the legal maximum height for boundary fences. A fence or wall next to and behind a house should not exceed 2 metres. In addition, in front of the house, it should not exceed 1 meter. Of course, there are also other Green Screens available with bigger heights.
The fully grown hedges are pregrown in a biodegradable container made from coconut fibres and are grown sustainably. The Mobilane Green Screen is known for its quality, taking up less space and being fully-grown. It is ideal as a natural boundary fence or as a replacement of wood fences.
