Artificial cedar pines (aka conifers)
We love seeing how people use our natural-looking artificial cedar pines and conifers. From potted cedar spiral statements, added greenery or screen-ery (see what we did?) with faux conifer trees to complementing other plants with mini cedar bushes. No need to wait for them to grow, no maintenance – simply position and enjoy!
Everything you need to know
It’s safe to say that artificial trees have become hugely popular over the last few years. They’re ideal if you have a busy lifestyle but still want a garden you can enjoy, and for businesses that want an instant garden straight out of the box.
If you’re after screening that hides an unsightly fence or simply want to add some privacy from any nosy neighbours, our artificial cedar pines are just the thing! They never need to be pruned or watered, making them great for a low maintenance garden. There’s a choice of evergreen conifer trees, the mini cedar pine or our popular cedar spiral topiary tree. All of which include UV resistant foliage which won’t fade in the sunlight.
We check the foliage, colour, shape and size of all our cedar pines against their natural counterparts to ensure they look real. They’re made using quality, durable materials including natural wooden stems and polyethylene, which makes sure our cedar pines are some of, if not, the most realistic on the market.
The cedar spiral is the topiary version of our conifer tree and is perfect for a trendy low maintenance garden. Each tree is handcrafted into a stunning spiral to add a ‘twist’ to your garden 😉. Stand a pair together either side of your front door for a beautiful impressive display.
The mini cedar pine is perfect for adding to beautiful flower displays like hanging baskets, patio planters and window boxes. At just 56cm in total, it makes a great centerpiece when surrounded by stunning faux flowers and foliage.
The conifer tree is our take on the North American cedar pine. It’s available from 3ft – 6ft so it’s perfect for instant screening, designed to withstand typical UK weather.
The cost of artificial trees may be more upfront but overall the cost is actually much lower than keeping real cedar pines. This is because there’s absolutely no need to maintain them, so it’s not only money you’ll save but also plenty of time for more important things.
Real conifer trees can be a problem if you have pets as the needles they drop can cause a lot of damage to your four legged friends if eaten 😨. Not to worry though, the needles on our artificial version will stay firmly on the stems.
One of the best advantages of artificial plants is the low maintenance. This is especially relevant to the cedar spiral as growing and maintaining pristine looking topiary takes a great deal of time and patience that for most of us, just isn’t possible. There’s no need for watering, feeding or pruning your cedar pines and they’re ready to go into your chosen space straight out of the box. What could be easier?
We always suggest re-potting your new faux’s into a more eye-catching pot and don’t worry because it’s really easy to do. Just pop your tree and its starter pot into your new planter and fill in any gaps with stones or soil. You might want to add some stones to your pot first to give your tree some extra height, but we’ll leave that up to you.
