Understanding your artificial hedging choices

Over the past decade, there has been plenty of hype about artificial grass from builder's merchants, garden designers and landscape gardeners.Now, there is a growing trend for artificial hedges and vertical green wall hitting the UK - but what is it actually?
Artificial hedging is made from a mixture of artificial foliage and faux flowers, which click onto a plastic mesh backing. It is often a more time saving and cheaper solution than traditional  real plants because the artificial hedging needs no maintenance and watering. Also artificial hedges are made from fully recyclable plastic so it reduces the waste ending up in  landfill sites. These days, consumers are much more price sensitive and environmentally conscious and are actively looking for products which are reasonably priced and also good for the environment.
With busy working schedules, people  want to spend their leisure time enjoying their outdoor spaces rather than maintaining them. Introducing our maintenance free variety of artificial hedges and green walls, they require a basic wash down with soapy water twice a year, or fibre-duster to dust off the dirt if indoors. It's this key benefit which makes it an attractive product and it is why the market is growing.
Artificial hedge products have been specially engineered to perform in rain or shine, designed to be UV stable and weather resistant. So they last many years and will look as good as they do on the day of their installation year after year. Our manufacturers back this up with between 3 and 5 year warranties.
Our artificial hedge panels and green walls have flexible backing so they can be fixed around bends and corners and trimmed with a pair of scissors to allow faster installation.
Furthermore, if you like to add greenery to indoor living spaces, hotel lobbies, bar and events decor, we have fire retardant artificial hedges and green walls which are fully compliant with all fire safety regulations.
