In this detailed guide to faux green walls, we will answer all questions you have about the product and offer advice on choosing the ideal choice which will best suit you. We will look at different green wall varieties available and discuss tips on how to cost-effectively install and maintain them while maintaining their lifelike appearance. We will also consider the differences between using artificial plants compared to real ones.
What exactly is an Artificial Green Wall?
An artificial green wall is a collection of panels made up of greenery and plants which are perfect for adding a natural splash of colour and exciting decoration to any desired wall space available. We use our premium range of foliage to make our green wall panels, resulting in an incredibly realistic replica that is very long lasting yet still very cost effective. Lower cost faux greenery can leave green wall panels looking noticeably fake and always lead to an early replacement, especially if used in public places where they can be easily touched, grabbed and brushed against.
We manufacture our green walls in sections here in our warehouse in Dubai. Making them super easy to transport, handle and install. The panels structure can be any material. However, coated metal is always our choice due to its strength and long life.
Faux green walls have some significant advantages over real plants options. Unlike the living walls, our artificial equivalents are near zero maintenance once installed. No expensive watering and drainage systems are needed – perfect for the Middle Eastern climates. Due to this, our fake green wall panels do not take up as much space, giving you more floor space while adding instant beauty to your wall.
What are they made of?
Cheap artificial plants are usually made from a combination of plastic, paper and silk.
Our green walls are made from our high-end faux foliage, fake plants and artificial flowers which are manufactured with premium grade 1 plastics and accurately coloured printed silks. You will find our green wall panels look realistic and natural and always lush and vibrant. Many of our foliage’s are available as part of our FireSilx fire retardant leaves and UVSilx fade resistant range.
Artificial or Real Plants, What’s the Difference?
Going artificial has many positives and benefits over real plants, especially if you are planning on displaying these inside rather than out. A few positives are highlighted below:
- Don’t need sunlight to survive and also don’t cause allergies.
- As they are artificial, they don’t require the use of fertiliser, and they will never die.
- Maintenance and ongoing costs are significantly reduced compared to real ones.
- It is far cheaper to install and look after artificial plants. One of the reasons being that they don’t have to be watered once a day.
