Urban greening specialist Treebox getting busy in the city

You know things are bad when ads on the Tube offer free plant seeds to help stimulate urban bee populations, so it’s good to see urban greening specialist Treebox getting busy in the city. The firm is installing over 350m2 of green wall on the side of London’s 4-star The Rubens at the Palace hotel in Victoria – over 10,000 herbaceous plants. During heavy rain, grey water harvesting tanks send controlled water flow to the wall, freeing up tank capacity and mitigating possible street flooding.
