Fake Outdoor Green Walls

Green Walls at Home

Not all of us have deep pockets to afford a home that comes ready with a large and lush green garden sprawling out in front of you the moment you set foot outside the house. A conventional garden not only demands ample space but requires a seasoned landscaper and gardener to carry out regular care and maintenance.

However, you are in luck as artificial green walls and green wall art are quickly becoming the new craze in UK homes. You might have already come across a green garden wall or two in a neighbour’s home or even at someone’s office – while admiring its alluring beauty, surely, you must have thought “how on Earth am I going to deal with maintenance?”

Chances are what you saw was an artificial green wall. Once you have the right mix of plants and other green elements, you can barely tell if it is an actual living green wall or an artificial living wall. If you have ever been doubtful so as to whether you should get a fake living wall for your home, let us quickly shed some light on the benefits of having a vertical green wall in your home:

Super-low Maintenance Costs

Whether you go for an indoor green wall or an outdoor green wall, know that the upfront maintenance costs of an artificial green wall are relatively and significantly lower as opposed to living green wall décor. There are virtually no ongoing maintenance costs so to speak. There is also no need to worry about having your vertical green wall installed directly in front of or near a UV light source. Since its not actual living greens in your wall, you simply do not have to worry about the green wall planting dying or not getting water.

This saves you plenty of time and money – in fact, it might even thwart off a disastrous outcome should water leak anywhere from your ceiling, walls or even your floors.

Convenient and Easy to Install, Indoors or Outdoors

A fake living wall can not only look great while complimenting the nearby scenery outside your house but look just as attractive and mood-elevating inside your living space. Plant covered walls are available in different panels and sizes and you can bet there is one to match your individual preferences and unique living space specifications.

You can pretty much install your green wall décor anywhere in the house where you feel the mood could use a little uplifting, such as the main door passageway, main living room area, even the basement or practically any place you feel you could use greenery.

When you think about it, there really are not any downsides to having a vertical green wall installed in your home by a professional green wall designer. Invest in an artificial green plant wall or fake hedge wall to add some contrast and bring out the key elements in your living space even better, while promoting a relaxing atmosphere that instantly calms and cools the senses. There is plenty of irrefutable research that proves being surrounded by nature almost immediately dissipates the stress we subconsciously mount on our back and shoulders as the day progresses. Why not take it a step further and a have green garden wall installed in a designated yoga room?

Did you know how easy it is to have artificial plant covered walls installed by a skilled green wall designer that look just like the real thing? Not all green living walls may be designed to thrive indoors but artificial ones can seamlessly integrate with any part of your home or office, be it even a green wall building.

For a fact, there is no need to rake away dead leaves and branches whatsoever. The results you get are immediate and the moment you get your plant covered wall installed, you’ll be looking at vibrantly beautiful green wall architecture that’s sure to wow the neighbours and guests alike.

Turn your drab living space and plain white walls into a visually stimulating vertical green wall that looks just as good as actual green living walls. However, make sure to hire the services of a qualified green wall designer and always check that your green wall panel is UV rated according to UK regulations, ISO 9001 compliant and comes with at least a 3-year guarantee.

Keep the Noise and Echo Level of Your Home in Check

If the added bonus of having a gorgeous and serene-looking vertical green wall in your home was not enough, here is another one: keeping the noise level in check. Did you know that having a few pieces or panel of greenery installed in your home can noticeably suppress echo and other sources of “noise” in your home? Somebody might have the TV blaring, furniture might be getting dragged around or people could be talking louder than usual – having a green wall can alter the acoustics in your home to reduce sound reverberation and echo. You could always use more peace and calm in your home by having the noise level lowered a few decibels, especially after a taxing day at work.

Interesting (and Possibly Surprising) Facts about Artificial Green Walls

All around the world, folks are going practically mad over artificial living walls and with good reason it might be noted. Outdoor green walls and indoor green walls are being extensively used in landscaping designs, not just in homes, but also in offices that actively work to promote a feeling of calmness, effectively boosting productivity in the process. Do not be surprised if you see a massive green wall on a building or an artificial hedge wall on the sides as you make your way toward a building entrance.

The days of tacky looking artificial green walls are long gone. The best artificial green solutions might not only fool the eye but look even better than actual living green walls. If, by any chance, you are still on the fence about getting a lush and artificial living wall, here are some interesting, and perhaps, surprising facts to help ease any doubts you may have:

Green Wall Décor in Your Home Promotes Peace

As long as your home is well built and generally constructed properly, artificial plant covered walls in and around your home can help dampen noise levels. Ever noticed how more business, particularly those located closer to motorways and public roads, have had large green walls installed around their office boundaries and front-facing walls? They are there for a mighty good reason.

Artificial green walls happen to be highly functional vertical panels, in that their structure can deflect high-frequency noise through acoustic energy absorption. So, if you are living in a crowded neighbourhood with traffic and noise pollution almost right outside your driveway, you really should get artificial green walls installed in your home.

Artificial Walls Are More than Just a Feature

You can literally transform your living space by having a faux green wall installed. You might be surprised by what a little greenery, even if it is not real, can do to spruce up the look of the place. There is a lot more to it though, than just the look factor; a fake living wall can be functional as well. Get in touch with a seasoned green wall designer and you will be pleased to know that it can double as a boundary to protect your construction against wind break and other weather elements.

Artificial Walls Require Professional Installation

From the outside, installing a fake green wall might look pretty straightforward. However, there are various nuances involved in a proper artificial green wall installation, such as building a green wall to exact specifications and carefully assessing what part of your house benefits the most. You should always ask a green wall designer to scout out your living space before a design is recommended.

Outdoor Green Walls Are Completely Safe

There are literally zero health or safety issues when it comes to having a vertical green wall installed in your home.

Artificial Green Walls Must Comply with Local Regulations

Whenever someone hears the words “local laws” or “government regulations”, they are understandably put off. Bear in mind that for any kind of interior or exterior green wall installation, you may have to take certain restrictions into account as far as construction terms or height, for example, is concerned. However, you should not worry as long as you are asking a qualified green wall designer from a reputable company to install your green wall as they will more than likely be ISO 9001 complaint, UV rated according to UK regulations and sell only products that come with a 3-year guarantee.

Artificial Green Walls Are Highly Durable

If you browse around the green wall market long enough, you may find relatively economical faux vertical wall options, but a product is only as good as its price. Buy your green wall from a reputable company and you will know first-hand how life-like these plant covered walls can look; in fact, you may initially mistake them for real ones. Quality green wall decors are intricately constructed using the very best in fake living wall materials and UV coating technologies. This ensures that your artificial living wall stays looking like new throughout the years. You have absolutely nothing to worry about as far as weather elements fading away the look and texture of your artificial green wall is concerned.

No Need to Hire a Landscaper or Gardener

Gardening can be back breaking work and, unfortunately, even lesser experienced landscapers will charge you a hefty price to maintain the lush greenery around your home. Good gardening and landscaping is a highly specialized area and such individuals are hard to come by, unless you are willing to put in the time and money up front that it demands. Save yourself some time, money and undue stress – go with a fake garden wall that requires virtually no maintenance costs at all.

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!

Great product. Great result. Looks fab.

Quite honestly, it took me FOREVER to track down a company who could build a feature plant wall in my home. Once I emailed and spoke to VistaGreen, I knew that regardless of my budget, whatever they quoted for my feature wall, I would do whatever I could to make it work. This was down to not only the quality and variety of foliage offered, but because both Tim and Ric from the sales team took their time with me, worked with me budget wise, and using the image of the space I had previously sent to them, gave me digital images of what the wall would look like!! Additionally, VistaGreen accommodated an early installation, meaning that within days, my vision had come to life! I really appreciated their willingness and flexibility. From inception to completion I enjoyed my journey with VistaGreen and I’m almost sad that there is nothing left to do (for now! Lol) I can whole heartedly recommend them to anyone thinking of having such a special luxury feature in (or out) of their home!

Really happy with our new green wall, it has transformed our basement completely. The work took place over 3 days, the workmen were polite, professional and we would highly recommend the company

I've recently installed VistaGeen green wall panels in a garden design scheme set within a timber frame and they look great - very realistic and none of the hassles of irrigation and plant failure associated with real living wall. Most importantly, the client loves it too! Great product

Great and professional service once again. Very accommodating given the changing weather and site conditions.
