Easily installed on lighting columns and street furniture, the LivingPillar™ has been designed to encourage biodiversity into city centres. The patented Fytotextile living wall system supports long term plant growth, the irrigation system is powered using solar energy and installation does not damage the column. The irrigation is recirculating therefore there is no water wastage. All year round foliage can enhance wayfinding and placemaking and particular plants can be chosen for tasks such as trapping particulate matter (PM), N0x and Carbon. Bird boxes and insect houses are installed to establish bird and bee lines back into the centre of our cities. Decorative and seasonal lighting can be installed to add further interest and the water reservoir at the base of the column can support commercial revenue opportunities using signage and sponsorship’.
