    Do plants and green instinctively make you feel good?

    Whether you love being surrounded by green plants or just want to decorate your house or office space with something green and natural, there is a suitable artificial green wall for every setting.

    Seeing and being around the greenery of plants helps many people feel calmer and more relaxed.

    Whether natural or artificial, green plants are a source of great joy and significantly impact human life in more than one way.

    However, maintaining natural plants is more challenging than you think. They require a lot of work in order to stay healthy and green. 

    On the other hand, artificial plants, once installed, need only timely dusting and provide many benefits similar to natural plants.

    Known by several names, such as plant walls, green wall panels, and faux green walls, artificial green walls are available in various shapes, sizes and colours to suit your space and needs. 

    Read on as we will tell you everything you need to know about artificial green walls.

    What is an Artificial Green Wall?

    An artificial green wall or faux green wall is a vertical garden system made up of interlocking panels of fake plants and fake greenery. Each panel holds several high-quality, lifelike artificial green plants to create a faux green wall that looks exactly like a natural plant wall. These interlocking panels are put together by fixing the back of each panel to your wall surface with either screws, nail plugs or cable ties (depending on your surface).

    Artificial green walls can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications and are very popular fixtures in apartments, backyards, balconies, retail store fit-outs, offices and reception areas. These walls look not only fantastic but also have several advantages over using natural plants.

    Top Advantages of Fake Green Wall

    Here are the top advantages of using a fake green wall:

    • Highly Versatile

    Fake green walls are highly versatile. They can be used in almost any room of residential and commercial properties, ensuring you all find a reliable solution for your interior or exterior decor. Not only do they look good, but they can also be a useful privacy screen to help protect your pool or office space from prying eyes. They add an additional layer of insulation to your walls, ensuring to keep a comfortable temperature in your room during summers and winters.

    • Healthier

    Artificial vertical gardens help create a relaxing atmosphere in the home or office, creating fresh vibes in your space without any issues. They are incredibly appealing and life-like to the eye, evoking feelings of calm and serenity right once. The best thing about artificial plants is that they are created without using toxins. This can be very helpful in creating a healthier environment, especially for people with allergies (hay fever), who will not experience any reactions when you add these to your property.

    • Reduced Noise Pollution

    Noise pollution is a big challenge for busy office environments, resulting in employee distractions, low productivity and morale. Plant leaves, whether natural or artificial, are known to create sound barriers by absorbing, reflecting, and refracting sound waves. Installing faux green wall panels on the wall can be very effective in creating sound barriers, thus allowing you to create a quieter environment in high-traffic locations.

    • Improved Aesthetics

    Combining convenience with beauty, artificial vertical gardens are known to transform any empty space into something aesthetically pleasing and creatively stimulating. Modern green wall panels made from premium look materials with detailed foliage and lifelike colour look incredibly realistic that can easily spruce up a bland interior space. In addition, they can bring functionality to your design, helping you create the incredibly realistic, vibrant and eye-catching spaces that you desire.

    Different Types Of Artificial Green Walls

    Artificial green walls come in a range of colours, sizes and shapes. Let's discuss some of the common types of green walls types:

    • Panel-based Systems

    Panel-based systems are used to host different varieties of fake flowers and plants. It is the perfect solution to have a beautiful artificial green wall on any corner of your property without maintenance. These panels are specifically designed for quick and easy installation as well as removal. They are usually made from UV-stabilised materials, meaning they will not fade and last long.

    • Vertical Gardens

    Artificial vertical gardens are made up of fake plants that take up only a tiny amount of space on your property to add more greenery to your area. It is popular in this modern era because of its evergreen and long-lasting features. They can be installed on any surface and can be adapted to the shape needed to suit your needs.

    • Moss Walls

    Moss wall is a recent addition to the artificial green wall scene, which provides a great way to bring a piece of nature to your space. It is a cost-effective and almost no maintenance fixture that can be installed as a green wall to create an astonishing landscape in a home, office or commercial place. If you love nature but do not have time to tend to a garden, moss walls are an excellent substitute.

    How To Clean or Maintain Artificial Green Walls

    The best thing about having an artificial green wall over a living one is that they do not require any higher or continuous costs for maintenance. Unlike real plants, which require regular watering, sunlight, trimming and care, artificial plants just need a dusting and a wipe with a damp cloth once in a while to remove any dirt. These artificial plants will never die, helping you save a lot of money as well as your precious time.

    The range for maintaining these artificial plants is almost zero. Furthermore, with fake green walls, property owners do not have to worry about preventing possible water leaks in their walls, ceilings and floors. 

    Green wall panels are the perfect way to bring a splash of bright colour and texture to a modern or minimalist space.
