Green walls: Wow guests with a green vertical wall that screams tropical getaway! Vertical gardens act as a great feature wall, you can also jazz up your fence to give it a fresh look and feel, or just to help cover up any unsightly infrastructure like water tanks. Adding holiday decorations to a green vertical wall? Incredible!
Depending on the look you’re after, there are a wide variety of combinations you can put together.
Using Planters For A Holiday Decoration
When you’re considering outdoor artificial plants and flowers you need to also think about how you’re going to arrange them. One of the biggest advantages to artificial plants and flowers is how little they weigh, especially when you also consider the fact that they don’t require any soil. This makes it incredibly easy to arrange them and present them in a variety of different ways.
A great way to do this is to fill your outdoor planters with floral foam, which is dense enough to stabilise your artificial plants but still lightweight enough to keep the planters highly portable. What you do is cut the foam to the right size for your planters so that they provide enough support for your plants while also giving you ultimate control over how to arrange them to suit the configuration you want.
Adding festive decorations gets your planters ready for the holidays and creates a great ambiance with little fuss.
Investing In Different Artificial Plants For Different Varieties
One of the biggest advantages of outdoor artificial plants and flowers these days is you’re really spoilt for choice.
For a tropical feel, you can combine artificial palm trees with bird of paradise plants. Or how about some hanging baskets with artificial vines and ferns? You can also invest in artificial vertical gardens with a variety of hedge screen options that make a big impact as feature walls.
There are so many different varieties and styles you can choose from for artificial plants outdoor use, and they can easily be mixed and matched throughout the year. It all just comes down to how much artificial greenery you want in your space.
What were once considered ugly and plastic-looking, outdoor artificial plants and flowers have evolved with technology and appear as life-like as ever.
Now it’s possible to fill your outdoor area, or any indoor areas as well, with plants that look great, are low maintenance, and can actually save you money. You also won’t have to wait for the plants to grow as they provide you with immediate results and look great year-round!
