Artificial plants, flowers and trees make your living space look more vibrant and alive, especially during the darker, colder months of the year. But who has the time to maintain the upkeep of these plants, flowers, or trees? The only thing worse than a lack of plants around the home or office, is dead plants around the home or office. And that can be just as depressing.
But for the occasional fake ficus tree and maybe some decorations during the holidays, most people don’t put much thought into artificial plants and trees. But they really are a great way to change the ambiance of any space. They can set a mood of welcome and relaxation, brighten dark corners in offices and best of all they don’t die. With a very small amount of care and cleaning, artificial plants, flowers and trees can look great for many years.
This handy guide will offer you some advice on what to look for when buying artificial trees and plants from our website.
What are artificial plants?
The purpose of an artificial plant is to be an alternative to actual live plants and trees for decoration of areas and relieve you of the maintenance that comes with caring for fresh, live plants. They are also a great option for people suffering with allergies to various plants and flowers, and those who are sensitive to flower pollen. Some of our plants, trees and flowers are made of high quality silk, but the majority of our artificial plants are made of various plastic. In some cases our exterior uv proof foliage UVsilx™ range of plants and greenery needs to be of a thicker plastic to with-stand the extreme heat and temperatures that they would be exposed to in the Middle East. We also have a range of inherently fire-retardant foliage FireSilx™ for increased safety and peace of mind, without sacrificing appearance.
The main benefit of owning an artificial tree is that it improves the look and feel of whatever space the tree is placed in. Also, other benefits come from not having to feed, water, and the maintenance to keep a live tree trimmed and looking at it’s best. There is also the huge saving that comes from not having to replace trees when they die. You can achieve the perfect look you desire and maintain the fresh feel with minimal effort.
First, you will need to consider what type of plastic tree you want to buy. The type of tree needs to reflect the overall theme of the room it is going into. A rustic living room would look a little odd with a banana tree sitting in the corner. In the same way a modern hotel room with artificial topiaries would look just as strange. So it’s a great idea to know which tree will fit in with a room’s interior decor and design.
Types of Artificial Trees
Think of a decorative tree and the chances are that there is an fake tree alternative to it. Some of our custom-made trees are quite ornate and intended to be eye catching, while others are more subdued and classic-looking. Note that there are several artificial trees specifically designed for exterior use and are quite tough and durable. These exterior trees are created with our UV Resistant foliage that is made to withstand the UV rays from the sun. Some of our more popular outdoor artificial tree types include olive trees, buxus trees, yucca trees, cycas palms and eucalyptus trees. These are great for placing around pools or balcony areas as well as entrance ways and on hotel lobbies.
In addition to exterior options, there are many artificial trees that work great indoors too. Along with ficus trees, areca palms, larger olive trees, and bamboo trees can make any room look more welcoming and vibrant.
The benefits of owning artificial plants include the low maintenance needed to keep your home looking vibrant and alive. Further bonuses come from the fact that we can provide or create for you different arrangements for different seasons, themes, and holidays. When it’s time to change the theme, just switch the fake plant with the current theme and store away the other until it is needed again. The plastic plant will look just as good next season as did this one.
Artificial plants are meant to be a replacement to live plants. They require little time and energy to keep them looking healthy. Also as with our artificial trees, our artificial plants can be found made from various materials such as silk and plastic. They also have wire running through them so that they can be adjusted and manipulated if need be.
Types of Artificial Plants
We stock a huge range of synthetic plants from azalea and petunia to ferns and yuccas in various colours and sizes. Both flowering and nonflowering varieties of artificial plants are available. Just as with artificial trees, it is important to choose the right artificial plants and flowers to fit the look and feel of the area that they will be going into.

Many of our products available in our shop are tree, plant and flower arrangements specifically chosen with our high quality fibreglass plant pot range to give you the complete solution. Of course, there is also an option to have a custom-made arrangement which can extend well past what can be expected from our collections of artificial tree and plant arrangements.
