A Mediterranean ambience in the garden with the instant Green Screen Trachelospermum jasminoides
- Mobilane Green Screen
Creating a lush and natural environment does not have to be a time-consuming process. With the Mobilane Green Screen Trachelospermum jasminoides, an outdoor space is quickly transformed into a beautiful private oasis. This versatile hedge offers numerous benefits, from its lush green leaves to its wonderful fragrance. In a town in the Netherlands, several residents chose jasmine Green Screens in their gardens because of the summer atmosphere the hedges provide.
The ready-made Green Screen Trachelospermum jasminoides, better known as star jasmine, is known for its elegant and attractive appearance. It has glossy, dark green leaves that form a dense and lush backdrop for an outdoor space. Jasmine develops small, dainty white flowers that give off a sweet fragrance. As a result, the hedge adds a certain sophistication and natural beauty to the landscape.
Advice from an official Mobilane partner
The hedges in the various gardens were advised and planted by Van der Veen Green Projects. Owner Thomas van der Veen says: “the owners of one of the gardens wanted a more rural garden that could evoke the experience of balmy summer evenings. During the renovation of this garden, we made the choice of lining the garden with jasmine Green Screen hedges. These bloom beautifully and the lovely fragrance provides a real holiday feeling in your own garden in summer. Combined with the apple blossom in spring and the different colours of the outdoor furniture, the hedge forms a beautiful whole.
The metal grid in the Green Screen ensures that the garden is impenetrable. At the bottom, the grid is curved and covered with coconut cloth in which the roots grow. This ensures that the Mobilane Green Screens can be easily transplanted without damaging the roots. The hedges are easy to lift and place in a trench in the ground. Over time, the coconut material dissolves and the hedge grows further into the ground.
Privacy and shielding
One of the main advantages of the ready-made jasmine hedge is its ability to create a private atmosphere. The dense foliage forms a living green wall that effectively shields the outdoor space from prying eyes. Van der Veen: “We have been an official partner of Mobilane for many years and the cooperation is smooth and pleasant. The quality of the Green Screens is always good so we could confidently recommend Jasmine.”
Besides its visual appeal, the jasmine hedge surprises the senses with a bedazzling scent. The small star-shaped white flowers that appear in summer spread a sweet fragrance that makes an outdoor space even more pleasant. Pollinators such as bees and butterflies are attracted by the scent, adding to the biodiversity of the garden. “The residents of the garden with the thick beech tree came to us for a garden fence that had to be immediately green and densely vegetated. In addition, the hedge had to match the beech naturally and also bring life in the form of birds and insects. From our proposal for a Jasmine ready-made Green Screen, they immediately became enthusiastic. The nesting boxes that we placed complete the picture. ” says van der Veen.
The Green Screen Trachelospermum jasminoides is a versatile species used in a variety of landscape applications. The species functions as a stand-alone hedge or as a yard boundary for a garden or business park. Jasmine also looks great as a natural element on a balcony, or to create divisions in the landscape. The versatility of the species makes the hedge suitable for both residential and commercial landscapes.
When placing greenery, it is essential to take into account the specific climate and growing conditions of the environment for optimum success. The ready-made jasmine Green Screen prefers a sunny spot and in harsh winters the roots should be covered. Pruning is necessary to maintain shape and promote healthy growth, but it is a simple task that can be carried out once a year after flowering.
