About Ivy Screens (Hedera helix)
Hedera helix Ivy screens (a non-invasive variety) are an innovative screening solution that mean you can enjoy the security of a long lasting fence with the aesthetic and environmental benefits of a hedge.
Our range of Hedera helix screens, part of our overall range of living screens, are grown on galvanised steel frames using 13 plants, each with five shoots, creating full coverage. Ivy Screens are easy to install and make a low maintenance, sustainable living fence.

- Businesses and Public areas: Instant security - with a ten year guarantee on the steel frame, you can secure your perimeter and maintain peace of mind whilst helping to reduce pollution.

Installing a row of Ivy green screens is an easy DIY job, however if you wish you can ask a local landscaper to do this for you. We supply the brackets needed for installation and you can buy suitable posts, metal or wood, from your local DIY store or builders merchant.
- Begin by digging a trench, 30cm wide and 40cm deep.
- Position the posts at 1.3m intervals (centre-centre), we recommend using concrete for increased stability however this is not essential
- Loosen the soil at the bottom of the trench and add water if it is dry (it’s better to do this now than after the screens are planted).
- Mix in some general-purpose compost to the bottom of the trench (10 litres per metre of trench). We also recommend planting with Rootgrow, you can sprinkle this into the trench now.
- Plant the screens in the trenches, making sure the top of the biodegradable pot sits just below the surface level of the soil.
- Tighten all brackets (make sure none of the plants are squeezed by the brackets).
- Backfill and firm the soil gently.
- Water thoroughly directly to the base after planting.
The varieties of Ivy that we use are far less aggressive than the one most people are used to seeing climbing up houses. The Hedera helix varieties we use are not a self-attaching Ivy and only need pruning once a year to keep them looking neat and tidy. Our green screens have been trained up their galvanised frames and within 12-18 months will completely cover the steel underneath.
