A man often says his house is his castle. Colin had a problem. His house is on a busy main road. There is lots of traffic, especially big lorries rushing by creating load noise and wind. Another problem is that his existing fence is only about one metre in height, and he was worried about his two cute little dogs jumping over the fence and being killed.

Dome garden green wall
With the endless rain in Britain do you ever wonder what it would be like to be Spring all year around?
That is what Jonny from the Dome Garden was trying to achieve.
He contacted Hedged In for advice. We came up with the idea of covering one side of the Dome with artificial mixed plants for an evergreen green wall effect.
And the result is fantastic! For more of the story please see The Dome Garden News Update.
Flame resistant products must be used if it is for display in the commercial events such as an indoor exhibition centre, movie premier indoor events and shows.
What types of artificial hedges are currently available?
Most of the quality hedges you buy have some degree of UV stabiliser added in during production process, this is to avoid colour fading for long term exterior display.
At Hedged In we provide a manufacturer UV certificate, guaranteed for 5 year indoor and three year outdoor.
There are two different types of flame resistant artificial products on the market; surface treated and inherently flame resistant.
Surface treated flame resistant artificial products have either been sprayed or dipped into a flame resistant solution.
This results in a slightly greasy surface which looks shiny and attracts dust particles! The other drawback with surface treated plants is that they cannot be certified as there is no guarantee that the spray or solution has been applied evenly. It’s not recommend!
The plastic foliage on inherently flame resistant hedge panels is made from materials which are chemically treated to resist ignition from a naked flame – e.g. a match or lighter. Here at Hedged In, our IFR artificial foliage is tested to SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services ISO 6925-1982 Textile floor covering-Burning behaviour-Tablet test at ambient temperature. We will provide a certificate for these items. Also view our YouTube – Compare the real fire retardant artificial hedge VS fire retardant spray for the fire test we carry out.
Is inherently flame resistant artificial hedges truly fireproof?
Buying a flame resistant artificial hedge does not mean your hedging creation is totally fireproof. Only the foliage and the hedge panel is actually flame resistant. The frame of the hedging (which is normally made from plywood) hasn’t been treated and will burn.
Also flame resistant (or fire retardant) artificial foliage does what it says on the tin – resists flames. If the foliage is exposed to constant and extreme heat it will eventually catch light or melt.
So, should I buy flame resistant (or fire retardant) artificial hedges or UV stable hedges?
For the majority of customers using it outdoors, such as garden fence, privacy screening, balcony and roof terrace our range of UV stable and weatherproof artificial hedge panel is ideal. You have lots of foliage varieties to choice from at a reasonable price. Inherently Flame Resistant (aka Fire Retardant) artificial hedge panels are roughly 30% more expensive than their NON-IFR counterparts.

There are some tips for you prior to your artificial hedge purchase, and suggestions for your installation:
What are you using the artificial hedge for?
There are many uses artificial hedging could offer. Maybe to cover up the ugly mouldy wall in your courtyard, or to turn your living room into a green oasis, to update your balcony, to add a touch of greenery to your roof terrace, to add privacy screening to your front garden, to make an instant planter, to decorate your windowsill, to creating an animal or topiary figure, to creating a border or barrier.
Where are you using the artificial hedging?
Before purchasing the perfect artificial hedge panels we need to know where would you like your hedge to sit. If you like your hedge fence to look as if it is growing straight from the ground you would need build a frame fixed into the ground, and using upright growing foliage for the hedge fence. In places such as decking, balcony and roof terraces it is unrealistic for the plants to grow from the ground, the better option would be instant hedge planters. For commercial indoor display you would need to consider fire retardant foliage.
Measure up the area
It is important to measure up the area as accurately as possible. Hedged In DIY hedge panels come as 50 x 50 cm interlocking squares. Four hedge tiles make one square metre. You would also need to consider the other side of the garden fence for your neighbour's view. You would also need to consider 5 sides for a hedge planter.
Pick the right artificial foliage
The most common artificial foliage in commercial use is box hedging. Its dark green leaf imitates the real plants and has a manicured look.
Ivy Spring bush is great to cover an unsightly wall or fence. Its foliage has a 45 degree upright angle and is often used to create a vertical garden. This hedge is not conducive for hedge planter building.
Mixed plants metre square panels is the ultimate luxury choice. It combines moss, ivy, grass and fern to create a botanically accurate greenery as if the real plants are growing upright from the ground.
Do you need to cover all side of your fence?
The hedge panels are made from plastic mesh backing, which can be fixed onto any surface including bends and corners. If you are covering an unsightly wall in your courtyard there is no need to cover the other side. If you are building a divider or border between your garden and the neighbours it is recommended to build both sides
What materials are artificial hedge made from?
All our Hedged In artificial hedge panels are made from 100% raw polyethylene. It is fully recyclable. The greenery “twigs” are clicked onto a plastic mesh backing. UV stabiliser was added during production to prevent foliage discolouration and fading. Fire retardant ingredients was added for IFR certified artificial hedges.
Can I DIY my own hedge?
It is quick and easy to install hedges. By clicking the “male” and “female” connectors together artificial hedge panels can form any size and shape. Using a pair of scissors you can trim any excess off. please see my other blog page for instructions on how to install artificial hedge.

Dave has lived in the penthouse for 6 years. He was not happy about the tired red brick wall on the balcony. He called for my help.
It was straightforward to install theivy leaf hedge panels onto the existing surface. Use cable ties to fix the hedges onto the metal frame as there were some gaps to utilise. And use galvanised masonary nails to secure the hedge panels onto the wall.
It was slightly trickier for the other side of the balcony. Dave wanted to build a tall privacy screen to hide his BBQ and other objects behind the scene when not in use, but to remain accessible. Also it acts as a windshield.
I suggested we use the same artificial ivy leaf hedge panel to build the planter. I built the hedge planter the same height and colour as his balcony. One challenge was the narrow staircase to access the apartment. I overcame this by building the planter on site.
Dave's balcony has been transformed into a greenery. He is planning a party to show off his oasis to his friends and family.
This is what he wrote "
Jenny is an artist and has great vision. She works with you to develop the ideal garden or installation. The work she does is superb in quality, style and look. I cannot say how much she has transformed my garden space into a wonderful place to relax and spend time."
Louise wanted to put the house on the market to sell. There was a problem, because from her living room she could see a mouldy wall in her courtyard.
Louise searched online and decided to cover the offending wall with artificial hedges. After examining various samples from suppliers, she decided to go ahead with Hedged In Ivy Spring Bush as it offered the best solution. She received 20% off as a taken of good luck, also some advice on installation. Her artificial hedges arrived next day, and was installed by her husband in less than four hours. Louise has since sold her house and moved on, but knows her former courtyard will look fresh all year round.
