If you live in an apartment or a house, have a balcony, have an outdoor area that just can’t maintain live plants, or you just have a really busy life, artificial outdoor plants are a great option to include in your outdoor décor designs.
Fake outdoor plants have come a long way, they look great, and it’s so hard to tell that they're not real.
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting your plants for your outdoor area, is to make sure they are UV stabilised. This is a treatment that will maintain the colour of the plants. If you don’t use UV stabilised plants, they will change colour as the pigment has not been protected from sunlight.
Here are some ideas of how to successfully use artificial outdoor plants in your outdoor styling.
Fake outdoor plant vertical garden panels
It would take years to grow a live vertical garden, and then keeping it live and maintained is a big commitment. If you have a wall that needs some soft lush greenery, artificial vertical garden panels attached to the wall will make an instant impact.
Artificial vertical garden panels provide privacy and beautifully complement any outdoor living space. They look great on a paling fence, a dividing wall between properties, a pool area, on a balcony wall to create a green screen between neighbouring balconies, and lots more creative ideas, only limited by your imagination!
Parker Road have the experience to advise you on how to do this depending on what the wall is made of.
Fake outdoor plant hanging baskets
Fake plants in hanging baskets are the perfect solution for areas that can’t grow live plants.
There is no need for watering, you can hang them over chairs or in spaces that won’t be affected by water runoff, and they are light so you can hang large baskets without the worry of weight problems.
And, best of all, they look beautiful as they stay their original lush and green colour!
Fake outdoor plants for the balcony
Balconies are a great location for faux plants as they are not affected by dry winds that can kill real plants, and they don’t require watering, so there won't be any water marks or damage on the balcony!
There are so many beautiful outdoor containers you can choose from to complement the plant and your décor look. Clusters of pots create a dramatic look, while the choice of plant can work to fit your chosen theme.
Lifelike outdoor plants for the deck
Covered deck areas are sometimes a part of the garden that doesn’t always benefit from the right amount of sun or rain, making them the perfect environment for artificial plants
Make your deck space an entertaining oasis with the addition of beautiful realistic artificial plants.
