It’s essential that you take the time to pick the right green wall as you will be enjoying it for years to come.

In this detailed guide to faux green walls, we will answer all questions you have about the product and offer advice on choosing the ideal choice which will best suit you. We will look at different green wall varieties available and discuss tips on how to cost-effectively install and maintain them while maintaining their lifelike appearance. We will also consider the differences between using artificial plants compared to real ones.

What is an Artificial Green Wall?

An artificial green wall is a collection of panels made up of faux greenery and plants and are perfect for adding a natural splash of colour and exciting decoration to anywhere desired. We use our premium range of replica foliage to make our artificial green walls, resulting in an incredibly realistic replica that is very long lasting yet still very cost effective. Lower cost faux greenery can leave green wall panels looking noticeably fake and always lead to an early replacement, especially if used in public places where they can be easily touched, grabbed and brushed against.

We manufacture our green walls in sections. Making them super easy to transport, handle and install. The panels structure can be any material. However, coated metal is always our choice due to its strength and long life.

Faux green walls have some significant advantages over real plants options. Unlike the living walls, our artificial equivalents are near zero maintenance once installed. No expensive watering and drainage systems are needed. Due to this, our fake green wall panels do not take up as much space, giving you more floor space while adding instant beauty to your wall.

 

Realistic Artificial Greenwall

 

What are they made of?

Cheap artificial plants are usually made from a combination of plastic, paper and silk.

Treelocate’s green walls are made from our high-end faux foliage, fake plants and artificial flowers which are manufactured with premium grade 1 plastics and accurately coloured printed silks. You will find our green wall panels look realistic and natural and always lush and vibrant. Many of our foliage’s are available as part of our FireSilx fire retardant and UVSilx fade resistant range.

Artificial or Real Plants, What’s the Difference?

Artificial has many positives and benefits over real plants, especially if you are planning on displaying these inside rather than out. A few positives are highlighted below:

  • Don’t need sunlight to survive and also don’t cause allergies.
  • As they are artificial, they don’t require the use of fertiliser, and they will never die.
  • Maintenance and ongoing costs are significantly reduced compared to real ones.
  • It is far cheaper to install and look after artificial plants. One of the reasons being that they don’t have to be watered once a day.

Can you get different types of Green Wall?

Artificial green walls can come in various shapes, sizes and even colours. They are sold in individual panels, and you can mix up each panel to suit the design you want, or get an artificial green wall expert, such as TreeLocate, to help design, manufacture and install a bespoke green wall for you.

We can use any foliage that you want. Typically, Ferns, grasses and green leafy products are used, adding subtle colour with faux flowers, which helps bring vibrancy and texture. Simply by scrolling through our online catalogue in the link provided below, you can have a green wall of your choice and finished professionally by our green wall building experts.

Prices of Artificial Green Walls?

Artificial green walls vary in price massively. Our price range goes off a few variables: where the product is being installed, the size of the wall and the choice of foliage used. However, you will find our price extremely competitive when compared to others.

How are the Green Walls Installed?

Usually, artificial green walls are easily installed, however, if you have a big bespoke green wall on order, then it may be a little more challenging to install correctly. At TreeLocate, we have a very friendly and professional installation team who can help.

Can You Easily Move an Artificial Green Wall?

The answer is yes! The foliage we use is fastened very securely to the metal work meaning it is extremely robust and won’t come loose. Due to our handy 1m x 1m panels, you won’t have any trouble relocating the green wall if needed.

How to keep Artificial Green Walls well Maintained

Our top of the range quality green wall isn’t difficult to maintain. We recommend a light dusting now and then, or if kept outside a hosing down once a year. It’s that simple. You won’t believe how easy it.

Further Green Walls uses

Artificial Green walls are perfect for adding colour and interest to any wall. But there are other uses that we have in the past supplied our premium living wall panels for such as, barriers, view blockers, Instagram picture points and point of sale product promotions. There are many uses, and they can even be swapped around seasonally to keep your décor fresh.

Around this time of year, when summer has well and truly left and the chillier, crisper season takes its place, there is always a distinct change in atmosphere. Nature’s green hue is transformed into vibrant yellows, oranges and browns, and the ‘cosy’ vibe takes over from BBQs and suntans.

And it’s not just in the outside world that these major changes take place. As people start to embrace the beautiful colours, flavours and smells that the colder seasons bring, it’s easy to spot the outside world making its way in. Shopping centres show off grand displays of seasonal foliage, from autumnal woodland walkthroughs to extravagant artificial Christmas trees, surrounded by fake snow and candy canes. Hotels decorate their lobbies with fake trees and branches, so realistic that guests can’t help but stare on in awe. It’s a beautiful time to be indoors.

Theres something fascinating about finding nature where nature wouldn’t usually be. A tree in a hotel lobby, maple leaf garlands wrapped around bannisters or Faux Christmas berries in shop windows, whatever it is, it can’t be argued that it’s incredible to witness.

FireSilx Fire Retardant Leaves

FireSilx Fire Retardant Foliage

Fire is one of nature’s biggest killers. Every year, more and more forest fires are reported around the world, killing hundreds of thousands of animals and severely affecting natural ecosystems.

For most fires, it all begins with a single small flame, which quickly spreads and causes irreparable damage. Our FireSilx flame retardant products are specially designed to help prevent the spread of fire and keep your guests, customers and clients safe while on your property.

How can a fake tree help with fire safety?

Fire isn’t uncommon in larger buildings; we’ve seen at least five major hotel fires in 2018 alone, including at the iconic Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London, which had only just undergone a large renovation project. It is therefore essential for any interior designer, business owner or architect to consider the highest standards of fire safety, especially when dealing with indoor plants and trees.

Unlike real trees, our replica trees can actively prevent the spread of dangerous fires. Instead of allowing a flame to thrive and grow, fire safe foliage will extinguish the flame within 10 seconds, ensuring a safer environment for your guests and limited damage to your business.

Less maintenance and complete peace of mind

Artificial trees are guaranteed to wow your guests; many of them won’t even realise they’re looking at a replica! We pride ourselves on delivering a product that is low-maintenance, and tailor-made to fit seamlessly into your space. We also believe that we have a responsibility to provide trees that will not only amaze your guests, but keep them safe. This is why our FireSilx products are inherently fire retardant, and created using fire resistant materials and chemicals during the manufacturing process. We don’t use sprays or dips post-manufacture so there is no need to worry about greasy, oily or sticky films that attract dust.

Fire safety paired with uncompromised quality

The fireproof element of FireSilx products is guaranteed for life so you will never have to reproof them. All of our FireSilx trees, plants and foliage are rigorously tested, ensuring that they meet the highest global FR standards.

We are continually finding new ways to elevate our FR assessments, and most recently, we’ve added DIN 4102 Part 1 (the standard in Germany) to our testing spectrum.
At TreeLocate, we don’t allow essential new safety features to compromise the quality of our products. Our customers will receive the same show-stopping effects and unrivalled realism as they’ve come to expect from our range.
