Plant Wall Products Create Greenery in Your Home

If you’re like many in Australia, you love spending time outside in the sun but feel slightly overlooked. Can neighbours see into your garden? If this is the case, it’s difficult to relax. You feel self-conscious sitting in your own garden, and this causes many people to sit inside rather than soaking up the sunshine.

What’s the answer? Well, you don’t want to erect an eyesore of a fence. As well as looking ugly, you might also worry about what the neighbours think. Of course, a fence affects two gardens. You might get caught up in a whirlwind of confusing social etiquette and worry that they will be offended by a huge fence.

Instead, the better solution is often an artificial plant wall.

Artificial plant walls tick lots of boxes and they’re perfect for all sorts of homeowners. As we’ve seen, they’re a great way to add privacy to your home without putting in large fences. What’s more, they bring greenery to an outdoor space. Since the greenery is a privacy wall, it doesn’t take up lots of space in the garden.

If you were to add this much greenery in other ways, you would be tripping over pots just trying to reach your garden chairs. With a privacy wall, you add greenery without taking up any space in the garden.

While people were initially dubious about artificial plant walls, the products now have a foothold in the market. Even if you don’t have one yourself yet, you likely know somebody who does. Once installed, you’ll love the green space that you’ve created. What’s more, choosing an artificial option means that you have access to various styles.

Ivy and Bamboo Give a Natural Look

When shopping for artificial vertical gardens (another name for plant walls), you can choose the style and design that suits the rest of your garden. Since you don’t have to worry about maintenance, you know that it will keep its appearance in the long term.

As you peruse the best products in the industry, you might feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of options. For example, you’ll find imitations of laurel, fern, willow, boxwood, cissus, and various other plants. However, the best two options for a natural look are ivy and bamboo. If a natural appearance is at the top of your list of needs, keep these two varieties in mind.

While some people use a plant wall of these types of plants, others choose hanging versions of the artificial plant and create the wall manually. Imagine the looks of your friends as they see your ivy or bamboo plant wall in your garden. Due to the quality of artificial plants these days, visitors to your property will struggle to notice that the wall isn’t real.

In terms of the logistics, you’ll also enjoy that the artificial plant wall always looks the same. Regardless of the weather, your plant won’t start to die at the worst possible time (you’ve probably had this happen with real plants). You invite all your friends over for an end-of-summer celebration and all your plants start to give up almost to mock you. Thankfully, this isn’t a concern with artificial wall gardens.

Furthermore, you don’t even need to worry about watering your artificial plant wall. At the most, it will require a light dusting and a gentle clean to rid the wall of dirt and grime as it accumulates. Either way, it will maintain its excellent appearance month after month. Also, it provides privacy without an eyesore of a fence or another solution!
