Artificial Hedge and Vertical Garden UV Performance
A lot of people make claims, but don’t have any evidence to back them up. How can we claim that our UV stabilized artificial hedges and vertical gardens will last? Simple, we havetested them in a real-life situation. No fancy claims based on hypothetical situations.
Case study 1:
Property Location: Beach front, Melbourne.
Situation: Roof top terrace facing the beach.
Hedge: Boxwood Hedge Mat.
Performance: 6 years ago the boxwood hedge was installed onto a roof garden. The hedge receives full sun all day: one side during the morning, and the other side during the afternoon. What does it look like now? The hedge has, admittedly lost some shine and gloss but when you’re on the roof top terrace looking towards your green wall it is still green – not blue like a number of other supplier’s hedges.
Case Study 2:
Property Location: Front fence in full sun, Victoria.
Situation: Along a front fence, in partial sun during the morning, and full sun during the day.
Hedge: Photinia Hedge Panel.
Performance: 9 years ago (the first delivery) the Photinia Panels were installed (by the founders of the business) on their front fence. They are still there, and people still comment about how real they look, how vivid the colours are, and how the hedge is kept in such great condition.
Case Study 3:
Property Location: Adjacent to a pool, Perth.
Situation: Around a pool in Perth.
Hedge: Instant Ivy Panels.
Performance: 4 years ago the Ivy panels were supplied to a customer in Perth to decorate their wall around their pool area. The area is not enclosed, has no shade and receives full sun most of the day. So how does the ivy look now, well, according to the customer they love it as much as the day they purchased it, and apart from the shine and brightness of the ivy slightly decreasing the colours are still green, and the natural variation between the greens is still as it should be.
Unlike our competitors we only source the best quality, virgin plastic artificial vertical gardens and hedges.
Why do we focus on quality?
We’ve tested our products for many years and ensured their quality lives up to the promises we make. We have spent a lot of time and money on research and quality improvements to make your hedges stay beautiful for longer. Our Philosophy is to get it right the first time – no-one likes to end up with broken, malfunctioning or substandard products, we want customers to be happy and come back time and time again, not walking away feeling ripped off months later.
What is your returns policy?
Our returns policy allows for exchange or refund of purchase for up to 14 days, except when it is due to change of mind, or is a result of purchasers error.
We recommend that in your average condition (based on what our clients do), you could get 8 years out of your fake hedging (this would be allowing partial sun per day), bearing in mind though, they have been in a lot of sun in Victoria for over 9 years and still look great. Having said that, we need to be honest and say that harsh conditions in the middle of NT or WA are going to age your hedge a lot quicker, so the actual-life span of the hedge will vary, rest assured through, we are making sure that the best available UV stabilisers are used and as technology develops we improve the product too.
The guarantee only applied to the hedges, green walls and vertical gardens.
These rights of return do not limit your rights from the Australian Consumer Law.
What happens if my hedges or green walls fade?
In the unlikely event your hedge or green wall unreasonably faded, we would ask for photos to confirm this. From there we would organise replacement foliage for the sections or impacted foliage.
I.e. if you have a 10m long fence and only 3 plants in the green wall have faded we would replace the 3 plants (not the panels or the entire section). Alternatively, if the top strip of say 3cm has faded we would send you the equivalent replacement. Sometimes we notice in windy area etc a particular flower may fall off – we will replace that particular flower for you without any costs to you.
What about artificial plants?
As all artificial plants, i.e. (bamboo, palms, succulents) are made of various materials we cannot offer the same guarantee – for example some people want a UV real touch bamboo and using real touch material you won’t get the same life span as the plastics used in the green walls or hedges.
As a rough guide, artificial plants made of plastic will last 3 years +, and artificial plants made of silk between 1 – 3 years, however, using the UV spray we offer would significantly increase the life-span.
Plant stems used in our green walls would be subject to to a 3 year guarantee.
