Are Hedge Panels, Green Walls and Vertical Gardens all the same?
Great question, all of ours are high quality uv resistant wall and fence coverings that look awesome! Hedge panels simply a more traditional leaf look, whereas the vertical gardens and green walls often have a wide range of foliage, including grasses, stems, flowers and a wide variation of foliage. They are all great for making your space look better!
What are “Hedge Panels’’?
Hedge panels are artificial hedges specially designed to adorn and decorate walls, fences and other surfaces.
They’re a stunning, lifelike way to beautify your fences, enhance your yard, and keep your privacy…well, private. It’s a quick, affordable, convenient alternative to messy and expensive landscaping. So natural-looking, you’ll think it’s the real thing!
Are hedge panels easy to install?
Yes…they’re extremely easy. Installs in minutes, requires no special tools—even if you’re not handy and have no prior experience. If you still need help though, we do offer installation around VIC (Melbourne), NSW (Sydney), and QLD (Brisbane) Australia.
What size are the hedge panels and vertical gardens?
Any of our vertical gardens or panels come as a 1m by 1m panel made up of various smaller sized tiles. They have already been joined together into a 1m by 1m panel (except our select range metal backed green walls which are 90cm x 90cm too).
Can I get a custom sized panel?
All the panels can be cut to size using a pair of scissors – if you have an area 2m by 50cm for example, a 1m by 1m panel can be cut in half and joined together to create that size.
Can I mix different panels together?
Definitely! All you need to do is cable tie the backing together. You can mix 2 of 10 different styles, simply join them together.
How do I attach hedge panels to my fence?
Hedge panels can be attached to any surface in a number of ways.
The three most common methods are:
1. To a wooden fence or plaster wall with the assistance of a staple gun, by stapling the frame of the panel to the fence.
2. To a cyclone fence, like the kind around tennis courts or swimming pools—with plastic ties or easy twist wire.
3. To a metal fence, or other hard surfaced wall – using self tapping screws.
Can I use hedge panels outdoors?
Absolutely. All our panels are specially designed and treated for outdoor use – they are UV treated so will last longer outdoors. Please refer to our UV warranty page for further information.
You can also see our UV resistant reports here for more.
Our UV green walls and hedge panels are made with the best UV inhibitors available for such plastics; to ensure long-life whilst ensuring they still look life-like.
Where can I put hedge panels?
Virtually anywhere. Use them to enhance chain-link and other fences, walls, balconies and patios. As well as covering unattractive places such as bin storage areas, utility sheds and old walls; or simply make any ordinary surface as lush and beautiful as a garden in springtime. Please note that every job is unique, and the suitability of the artificial plants will vary from job to job, and be site specific, so please seek appropriate 3rd party advice as required to ensure compliance with building codes and safety requirements.
What size area do hedge panels cover?
All sizes—no matter how big or small. Each artificial plant panel is 1 square meter (smaller panels have already been connected for your convenience), and can be easily trimmed down or connected to other panels. You’ll have no trouble customizing it to fit your exact specifications.
What are the measurements for artificial plants?
All measurements provided are from the base of the pot (ground – to top leaf).
My Artificial Plant has arrived, but all the leaves are straight out, not bushy – how do I fix this?
All plants are sent in tightly packed boxes to avoid them rolling around in transit, and becoming damaged. This results in the leaves and branches being compacted around the trunk and pointing upwards.
This is an easy fix, simply
- Remove the plastic packing bag / box.
- Start from the bottom and fan the leaves outward (be gentle).
- Lightly move the leaves to the desire shape and over the coming days they will settle.

- Partial sun / cooler parts of Australia – every 6 months.
- Limited exposure (through windows, or less than 1 hour a day) – every 9 months.
