Faux Green Wall in Miami Florida

The only artificial living wall that is real value for money

It’s important to know what you’re buying when you’re looking at any sort of artificial green wall solution. What follows is the Top 5 Reasons why you are better off choosing Vistafolia, and some bonus ones well.

True Realism

1. Our Founder, Paul Alder; an award-winning Horticulturist originally designed Vistafolia to be as close to a real living wall as can be, and has succeeded. In fact, our artificial living wall system looks so realistic, people often confuse it for a real living wall. This is thanks to our panels’ seamless coverage, compact foliage planting, varying planting heights and vibrant, natural tones. The same cannot be said about many other systems out there, the majority of whom simply buy 3rd party products from China and repackage them as their own without any design input whatsoever.

Certifications – Fire and UV

2. Vistafolia’s certifications are the highest of any green wall product on the market. More often than not, other competitors claim that they offer the same or similar certifications, but when challenged on this, they simply cannot produce any evidence. Some claim to have a fire rated product, but this is through the use of fire-retardant sprays, which are not suitable for outdoor use and are unlikely to pass scrutiny from a building control office, thus the messaging is somewhat misleading. It is a similar story when it comes to UV testing. When you dig deeper into what is on offer, tests have not been carried out for a prolonged period to accurately mimic real-world conditions or worse, have not been tested at all. For this reason, most companies will not warranty the product at all, or for a short time at best because of the lack of testing.  By way of comparison, Vistafolia offers a world-leading 5-year product warranty. By choosing Vistafolia, you will have complete peace of mind and confidence in your artificial living wall.

Steel vs Plastic Backing

3. Durability – We only use powder coated steel-backed panels, guaranteeing ultimate durability in all weathers. You will find that other panels use plastic backing which does not offer the rigidity required for a safe installation. This plastic backing is not UV resistant and will deteriorate after a period. The steel backing safeguards your artificial green wall from warping, making for a secure installation, and ensures a seamless transition from panel to panel, always.

Customisation – Your Wall, Your Way

4. Vistafolia uses a combination of different panels (A, B and C green wall panels). This ensures randomised foliage placement with no repetition. Unlike most companies, we do not sell one panel which is used over and over, because that simply doesn’t look good! The flow of planting across all three of the panels has been very deliberately created and perfected over time to minimise repetition and remove join lines. No other product on the market has this, meaning that their use of a single panel inevitably leads to repeating foliage and, ultimately, an unrealistic, patterned look. This is especially prevalent on larger installations. You can then take the extra step to make your artificial wall is even more unique. We offer 8 different colour and texture boxes that you can place anywhere on your green wall. Whether you want fresh, delicate blossoms or vibrant, fiery red flora, you can easily get the look you desire. Our 3-panel solution, along with our colour and texture boxes, offer 36 different customisation options, making each wall completely unique. A Vistafolia artificial plant wall can be tailored to anyone. No other product on the market has options for customising the finish of the panels with additional foliage.

The Only Trusted Product Warranty on the Market

5. We offer a 5-year product warranty on all our products; we promise to repair or replace our panels within this time. The best competing warranty out there is a 3-Year warranty and often this does not protect against colour fading. We are the only artificial wall supplier that is both UV and fire retardant, with certificates to prove it. It is quite likely that these competing products will begin to fade even before the stated warranty. We’ve had installations in place for almost 10 years in hot, sunny environments and to date have not had a return because of colour fade.

6, 7, 8 9, 10… The list is endless

ISO Standards

Vistafolia is one of the few products that has ISO9001 accreditation for the manufacturing. This means that the same quality standard can be expected every single time, and panels can be traced right back to the source.

REACH Compliance

Vistafolia’s faux wall panels are fully REACH compliant (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals), which means that all foliage has been tested to ensure they do not contain any chemicals that are banned or could be harmful in larger quantities.

Fixing System

Vistafolia’s purpose-built fixing system allows for a smooth, hassle-free installation that securely holds the panels in place on virtually any substrate. It also means that panels can easily be removed for maintenance and access to the wall behind. These fixings are tested to the same rigorous standards that we hold our panels to.

100% Pure Colour Pigments

The foliage is made using 100% pure colour pigments which are very carefully chosen to accurately mimic the colours and tones of real plants. Our colour blending process also allows for different shades of colours on leaves, rather than an unrealistic mono-colour finish.

Unparalleled Support

From our base in the UK and distributors throughout the US, our team of experts can assist with any queries that a client may have. We can make suggestions for design and installation, provide training, and are a one-stop shop for all things Vistafolia artificial green walls.

Green Credentials

Vistafolia is fully dedicated to reducing and removing any waste to landfill through the use of our products. As such, all the packaging is recyclable, as well as being sourced from sustainable forests. The steel grid that backs the panels is fully recyclable. Plus, any plants that are not needed are recycled in-house, for use on future projects.

Bio-PE development

Vistafolia’s commitment to research and development has effected the start of the KTP project. Backed by the UK government, research is underway to develop a bio-based polymer for manufacturing our green walls, paving the way for a fully renewable source of material, drastically reducing our carbon footprint and further stamping our authority as a market leader. As well as this, the bio-based polymer is likely to have better attributes for longevity, minimising the risk of any product ever needing to be replaced, and eliminating a need for product to end up in landfill.

Long Term Cost

As mentioned above, there are a lot of potential pitfalls that can be found when purchasing elsewhere. Whether that be an uncertainty as to how and where the product is manufactured; the truth behind the certifications other products have or the added costs of having to purchase external protective goods to improve their longevity. The product may not last as long as you would like and you find yourself back at square one. Therefore, Vistafolia can guarantee that your product is safe, designed and developed in the United Kingdom and that once the product is fitted, you are good to go. Simple as that.

Brilliant product & service

Absolutely perfect! Great service and advice. Realistic, well packaged, easy to install. We customised the panels ourselves to fit purpose, which was very easy. Highly recommend😃

A huge shout out to Anthony and Ric, from Vistafolio, who were absolute gems to work with. I had no idea about this company when I googled them, and I am grateful to say they were professional and super-efficient to work with. This particular job is a corporate one, and we are all loving our new green wall in our boardroom. Great quality, great service. Thumbs UP! Happy customer. :)

I absolutely love our green wall! It’s made such a huge difference in the back garden , it’s an instant endorphin boost. The Vistafolia team were utmost professionals. High quality product, fast installation, worth every penny.

Great product. Fantastic Service. Recommended

Fantastic service and quality thrilled with my green wall

The Vistafolia panels and colour boxes have created a beautiful garden feature from what was previously a brick wall 'eye-sore' (see before photo). Excellent delivery times and brilliant customer service, so pleased we have just ordered some more!

I am absolutely obsessed with my purchases from vistafolia. I ordered 2 boxes of flowers to fill my window boxes. The quality is incredible. They look so real and even smell like a garden centre. The customer service is fantastic and I will definitely be ordering some more soon.

Thrilled! Looks absolutely fantastic and has surpassed my expectations. Makes such a difference looking out from my study onto a balcony with greenery rather than metal panels! Ric’s suggestion for the white colour box was spot on – really lifts the greenery. Installation process was seamless and the guys were great. Highly, highly recommend.

Very helpful and very professional! Thank you for my wonderful panels!

I got curious with the adds on fb about vertical garden wall by vista folia.. i researched with other competetor but vista folia captured my attention with its realistic foliage and it would be a great addition to my garden...it really lookes beautiful in contrast with the real plants i have.. it made it complete...i will have another part of the garden to be installed ... thanks to tim who i always communicate with if i have queries he's always accomodating... thank you vista folia... my wife love it too...

Amazing company! We have just installed 2 plant walls in our new office. Fantastic quality and mega responsive/organised team when it comes to each step of the process. Highly recommend.

Great product, excellent customer service, and professional skilful installation. Very happy to recommend.

Check out the website. So realistic

Brilliant service. Flexible, friendly and creative. And fabulous product. Transformed our terrace completely. The hedge looks stunning, the colour boxes being a beautiful feature.

To say I’m happy is an understatement! I found the perfect look I needed for my outside shower. I can’t recommend Vistafolia enough. The service I received was impeccable. A special shout out to Tim who explained the product so well, Ric who came out to the property to show me the product and measure up the area, and last but not least the installation team Dan and Nick who were excellent . They explained each step and also made sure I was happy with the end result. A smooth, stress free installation and any questions asked along the way was happily answered and explained. No hassle! What more can one ask for! I almost bought elsewhere until I came across this company who thankfully advised me that they could install this type of artificial living wall with a metal back frame to the size I required unlike the advice I got elsewhere. I’m so thankful that I didn’t buy a cheaper option out there as I really wouldn’t have achieved this look! Thank you!

Amazing product, pre-sales and installation services. Very courteous team who were respectful of our home throughout. Meticulous and careful installation. Could not be happier with outcome, service and product.

Vista Folia have been extremely helpful throughout and provided us with an excellent product. We throughly enjoyed bringing the wall to life with these amazingly convincing boxes full of foliage and the final outcome was stunning! Very happy client!

My Vistafolia green wall looks fantastic. I have to remind myself it's not real! It has transformed a boring brick wall which I look out onto while I'm washing up into something lovely. Very good customer service too - well-informed and helpful.

thanks for the great job

The team was fantastic. They arrived on time. It was raining, but they worked through the rain and did a fabulous job. Had some trouble with my neighbour and they went above and beyond to sort that out and make her side look pretty too. Would recommend them any day.

Extremely happy with the final product and service provided by Vistafolia in particular a big thank you to Ric and Tim. The project was delayed but throughout the whole process the team were great and supportive- answering my many questions will very sensible options. The final result is impressive and we have added our personal touch with a Ganesh statue that looks sublime.

Great company, very professional and efficient. I am very happy with the final result. I recommend.

We found Vistafolia's Lush Green green wall product to be of the highest quality. It was naturalistic and easy to install. Customer service was excellent and the end result is very impacting. It was key that the product had a good fire rating and clear supporting documentation. We would use Vistafolia and their products again.

Vistafolia did an awesome job of turning my small yard into a place of beauty. Amazing!

We love our Vistafolia wall! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, very helpful and speedy service, and the guys working on the wall were incredibly clean and polite!

Very efficient and professional from survey to installation and finished walk looks amazing

I am so thrilled that I picked Vistafolia. Our roof terrace looks amazing with the combination of the foliage panels and cedar panelling. The whole process could not have been simpler and the team worked hard and paid such attention to detail during the installation. I would thoroughly recommend them.

My experience with Vistafolia has been positive as they provided me with great service and the people we dealt with were very friendly and professional. I am happy with the outcome from Vistafolia as the packaging and the delivery was efficient and quick. I would definitely recommend this company for all your green wall needs.

The quality of the product exceeded my expectations and the customer service was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

A fantastic product and delightful service. Would highly recommend. I am now busy looking for more walls to cover!

Incredibly simple, efficient and professional team from start to finish. And what a beautiful result - no video or brochure does these green walls any justice.

Although our project was quite small in scope, the team at Vistafolia were very friendly and professional to deal with. Any questions we had were quickly dealt with and we are really pleased with the results of our green wall and garden boxes. The plants and colours look great!

We are so pleased with our Vistafolia Green Wall. It looks absolutely fantastic and has completely changed our garden. The team provided an excellent service and would highly recommend the product.

How nice it is to do business with a company that values your business; that responds promptly; whose workers turn up on time and are very polite, hard-working and courteous and whose product looks amazing. Vistafolia is one such company. The staff are amazing and we are delighted with the gorgeous transformation that the Green Wall has made to our garden.

Extremely happy with the service. We had two panels fitted and the guys couldn't be more helpful. They turned up on time and did a fantastic job with the installation. The product itself is fantastic, very realistic and no more watering. Would highly recommend Vista Folia

I have recently worked with the Vistafolia team on a couple of projects, including a contemporary domestic garden and a large central London commercial site. In both cases, the team were extremely professional, knowledgeable and reliable and I was confident that the projects were in safe hands from start to finish. With the latter commercial project, the team had to work under extremely difficult circumstances on a busy site with numerous other contractors, but remained patient, polite and focussed, even as the deadline loomed. Vistafolia is a great product, which lends itself to numerous applications and clients are always excited by the results. Big thanks to Ric and the team!

Great place

We had panels fitted onto walls at a commercial property. Vistafolia gave great customer service from the day we walked in to the showroom to after we had the foliage installed. Friendly, helpful and informed. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. The final finish looks excellent. We are very happy.

Vistafolia transformed our garden and we have been so pleased with the results. The team are very professional, accommodating and happy to assist with maintenance where needed. A pesky fox had caused some damage so Vistafolia despatched Ric to resolve the issue and he was incredibly obliging and got the job done efficiently and effectively! We would highly recommend them to anyone.

The team at Vistafolia were fantastic from start to finish. They came and did a site visit and explained all of my options, the sales team were friendly and didn’t try to give me the hard sell, and the installation team left me with an amazing green wall. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

The team at Vistagreen were brilliantly responsive and so quick to sort out what we needed. The process went smoothly from start to finish and the completed product looks fantastic. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Great communication and customer service throughout the sales process, and the product is excellent quality and looks fantastic. Really pleased with the result.

Just wow! The green wall has transformed a dismal space. Great service, I totally recommend this product & company

From start to finish the customer care was outstanding with immediate responses to my questions via email and the telephone. The quality of the product and the effect when finally put in place was superb, a visual delight. A five star company one I will certainly be using again.

These look so real! We have put some panels up in our home gym and they look great.

It has been a delight dealing with VistaGreen from beginning to end of the project. Fast and accommodating team who delivered a great finished result. Extremely happy with our new office decoration.

Quick turnaround, very accommodating, fantastic high quality product, friendly customer service

Great product and service :)

I spent a lot of time researching for a Vertical Garden, and finally decided on using Vista Green. Before I proceeded, I went to their Offices/Store Warehouse to double check the quality etc. I dealt with Tim, who was so helpful, knowledgeable and patient, and offered an on-site Survey, which I accepted. The Surveyor, Rik, was professional and he was able to sort out a quote very quickly. The Vertical Garden was installed last week, and it looks amazing. The guys fitting were an absolute pleasure to have working at your home, and we are so happy to have had chosen Vista Green. I have absolutely no problem in recommending this Company to anyone - Thank you to all the Team!
