You've seen it all over Instagram. Perhaps at a wedding, party or your friend's house. It's the latest trend in the home décor world – vertical gardens. If you've always wanted to try this new trend yourself but felt it required too much effort, you're right. Imagine watering the plants and all the maintenance that comes with having one, but now you have to do it vertically. If you still want to create a vertical garden without the fuss, we recommend faux plant wall décor. Look through any glossy magazine, celebrity patio, and you'll see fake foliage walls, especially outdoor wall planters.
Before You Start: Tips on how to build a vertical garden - indoor/outdoors
Measure your wallBefore growing your vertical garden, it's essential to measure your wall. How to measure your wall? It's easy! All you need is a tape measure. Start with the width by measuring the widest area; this is usually towards the center. Write the measurement in inches and round to the nearest inch. For the height, measure from top to bottom but don't include the crown molding. Record these numbers and measure them against the wall hanging planters you are interested in.
Choose the right wall mounted plantersAre you into the jungle look? Modern farmhouse? Minimalist chic? No matter your style décor, there is a wall-mounted planter for your space. This might have started as a trend for boho and eclectic home décor styles but has morphed into all home styles. Ensure your vase can house your plant. For example, some Nearly Natural faux plants come without a planter, and you need to make sure you can find the correct sized pot to stabilize it. Pick one that fits your taste and budget; some like to use to shelves and decorate them with different plants.
Decorating with Artificial Outdoor Wall Plants:
When decorating with boxwood hedges for the outdoor, you will need to measure the area of your outdoor borders. Depending on the size of your backyard, you will probably need many outdoor wall mats. While the price might seem high at first, remember that this is more economical in the long run. Landscaping costs can run in the thousands and require seasonal maintenance, especially in the winter, where some plants need more care and supervision. This is why artificial outdoor wall plants and artificial outdoor plants for wall décor are the perfect solution. Not only do they add cohesiveness, but they serve as barriers for added privacy.

Tips for Decorating Outdoors:
Choose the correct outdoor plantsWhile style and budget are a personal choice, we recommend shopping for plants that say UV resistant or indoor/outdoor in the title because these fake plants were explicitly designed to withstand natural elements. We don't want you spending time and money on items that are not suitable for the outdoors and will deteriorate quickly in those conditions. Artificial outdoor plants and artificial boxwood hedges are mostly designed for outdoors but double-check the title and description.
Measure your spaceThis one gets tricky. You might want to cover your whole fencing or just a new planter. When decorating with artificial boxwood hedges, it's better to be conservative with the amount you will need and buy more than less, especially if you're having someone help with the installation. With Nearly Natural, you get a 30-day money-back guarantee plus free returns. It never hurts to be on the safer side. You can also keep the extras just in case you need a replacement. Use these panels to cover walls or old fences.
Have your tools readyWe design products that need no tools for use but you will occasionally need some assembly tools depending on where you want to house your vertical garden or decorative plants. For example, if you're going to add outdoor wall planters, you will need to drill a hole if the planter isn't hanging. For a fake foliage wall, you will need to ensure the artificial plants are mounted safely to avoid it falling. Don't be scared! This is easy! If you feel a bit safer enlisting a professional's help, we recommend you go that route.
