Practicality Brown to offer Mobilane Green Screens

Semi-mature tree and instant hedging supplier Practicality Brown is to sell Mobilane's Green Screens to designers and landscape gardeners.

The companies signed the deal following collaboration on a previous project.

Practicality Brown Instant Hedge marketing and sales manager Prem Mann said: "We worked with Mobilane on a project in Stoke-on-Trent where we felt the Mobilane products were more appropriate due to tight access and smaller planting trenches available. Mobilane Green Screens were the perfect solution and it quickly became obvious that there is a natural fit between our companies. Mobilane Green Screens are very appropriate for a range of situations our clients often encounter."

Practicality Brown will offer a simple supply and delivery service as well as a comprehensive visit, assessment, recommendation and tailored quotation service. The company will also offer an access and service assessment and can install irrigation.

Mobilane Green Screens feature biodegradable pots holding a wire mesh fence onto which vegetation is cultivated.

Mobilane representative Sean Farrell said: "We have a great deal of respect for Practicality Brown and the company has penetration into the very important and hard-to-impress garden design market. Working with Practicality Brown illustrates the value of our product to this market. This is a mutual partnership and we are looking forward to working closely together."
