To investigate the ability to sustain long term planting on lamp posts, powered by solar, self-irrigating, without damaging the lamp post.
The prototype was designed, installed & planted and monitored for a year at our head office
The irrigation was designed to be recycled ensuring no water loss
The technology was developed to send and receive live data from each LivingPillar™ via an App. We can therefore ensure the planting remains healthy by monitoring irrigation flows, substrate temperature levels, moisture content and water levels.
The sensors within the system are able to detect heat and moisture levels and add irrigation cycles in extreme heat without human interference.
The pilot scheme of 5 pillars continue to thrive at time (October 2022).
The LivingPillar initiative is now being trialled with over 100 LivingPillars™ installed (at time of writing October 2022) in Westminster, Wandsworth, Clapham Junction, Islington, Liverpool and Southend in 2022
Ebury Street London
Clapham Junction, London
We have named the concept LivingPillar™ and at time of writing (October 2022, there is a patent pending)
