Everything you need to know
Why paint when you can decorate with foliage panels? Artificial living walls let you do just that. This maintenance-free revolution can be joined together to cover any shape or size surface and is easy to attach. Once in place, it produces a stunning alternative to a bland painted wall.
We offer faux plant walls in a variety of shapes and foliage styles. Many are a single type of foliage such as cedar and some offer mixed foliage for greater variety. Please note that the different varieties do no clip together, only matching foliage mats. If you’d like to create an assorted wall please contact our team.
Natural living wall is beautiful but fairly difficult to install and maintain. It requires drainage and protection to prevent the wall underneath from damp. Then once fitted, you have to figure out how to maintain the plants.
With artificial green walls you do not need to worry about these things. The faux wall doesn’t demand special drainage or any set amount of natural light. Nor does it need regular maintenance or watering.
Fake foliage walls like the fern living wall and the English garden living wall are designed to be botanically accurate and in the latter case include a variety of different foliage types for different texture. While not the most realistic artificial product on the market, living walls are robustly designed to withstand the elements and the rigmarole of daily life.
All of the faux green walls on our website are designed for use both inside and outdoors. The plastic material contains UV blockers meaning they’ll maintain their colour for long when exposed to the suns UV rays.
Artificial green wall is easier than you think to install. We’re currently putting together an in-depth how to guide, but in the meantime, you can follow these instructions.
Work out how many mats you need
Most of our living wall panels are either 25cm2, 50cm2, or 1m2. Therefore you will need either 16, 4, or 1 per square meter. The mats can be cut to shape and size to fit your space perfectly.
Create a frame
For ease and to prevent damage to your wall, we recommend making a simple wood frame or purchasing some trellis. Attach this frame to your wall using fixings that are recommended for your wall type.
Join the mats together
All of our green wall panels have A/B connectors which slot into each other to create a seamless roll of foliage. If you are covering a large area, join manageable strips together. You can join the rest once the mats are attached to the wooden frame.
Attach the green wall panels to the frame
The faux living wall foliage can be attached to the frame using hooks, cable ties or our preferred method; a staple gun.
This final step is easier with two people. One person who can hold the living wall in place and then other person can secure it to the frame.
