As we have been discussing at length the different artificial foliage types and faux plant varieties we have been giving tips on how they can be used in a practical sense. Today we will get back into those practicalities, and further expand on the ideas you may already have. The more information you have will help you be better prepared when the time comes and you finally have the products in front of you. The worst thing would be to have everything laid out ready to go and then no idea how to execute. That is why we will go into just some simple steps for making a garden as practical and presentable as possible. We will talk about different flower varieties that commonly are found and work within a garden setting. Another important part is to OK into topiaries and the different varieties that are offered. Even if you are planning on only making a small garden created from flowers, it is always good to at least try topiaries as they can make a huge difference in many settings. We will look into faux hedges as well and see just how important they can be in making gardens go from something expected to something unique. These tips will be a great help for you when just starting to come up with a plan on how to spruce up your lawn. Let us not waste anymore time and jump right into it!
Step 1. Finding the right flowers
Whether this is a brand new garden with just bare soil or you are supplementing the garden with additional plants, you have to do some preliminary research because of the wide variety of faux flowers that are out there. The appearance faux flowers give to a garden is special, especially when using the high quality material flowers from Commercial Silk International. Here is a list of our most popular artificial flower varieties that can be utilized outside in a garden: anthurium, heliconia, orchid, calla lily, dahlia, peony, hydrangea, ranunculus, and of course many more. With the help of our experienced project managers you can get a complete run down and also some other more specific answers as to how to make them last indefinitely. Having the right color scheme is the most important part when picking faux flowers, but also looking at how dense or minimalist your garden is will also play a role into your final decision.
Step 2. Looking at the various topiaries
As mentioned before, even if you are not planning on using topiaries within your garden it is always good to at least know what options are out there. The greatest attribute of faux topiaries is that once installed there is no additional work to be done. With authentic topiaries you are constantly watering, trimming, and pruning to keep them in the same condition as when you purchased them. So if you are the fence (no pun intended) about putting within your garden space then hopefully that will give you extra incentive. You can have either ball, cone, or spiral topiaries that adorn your garden and each of these comes with their own unique set of qualities in terms of visual aesthetic. Ball topiaries are smaller and would fit well in a minimalist garden with not too much going on. Cone topiaries are a lot larger, depending on what size you end up going with, so they fit well with larger gardens or gardens that have an abundance of plants. Faux spiral topiaries will be used in a similar fashion to cone topiaries as they are usually tall and narrow. However, artificial spiral topiaries are more unique and provide a more modern look.
Step 3. Contemplating hedges
Now if you were not considering topiaries maybe you were looking into hedges, as they are a more common decor piece for landscapes. We at Commercial Silk International specialize in hedges and have been a leading provider of artificial hedges for many years now so using our expertise if this is a option for you would be best. Get a hold of our project managers with the dimensions of your garden and we will be able to get a quote to you for an artificial hedge. We offer many different varieties that you can build the hedge from; boxwood, azalea, pearl grass, juniper, and ivy. With these options and the customization we provide you are sure to find something to work within your garden.
Step 4. Layout the design
Now that you have a good idea of the options available to you and what you what to purchase, you can now go further into the design process. Using the help of our project managers and your own ideas you should be able to come up with this fairly quickly since you have most the hard work done already. The amount of time spent on this step is hopefully minimal as this will be sometimes the more stressful part of the design process.
Step 5. Install and review
Lastly, you will get the products and then begin installing them. For faux flowers you can even stick the plastic stems in the ground itself for a slightly permanent setting, or put them in a decorative pot to stay for good. Usually customers opt for the pot as it provides a better visual appeal. This also goes for the topiaries if you choose to incorporate them. They will all come in a black plastic pot that can be transferred into a larger more decorative planter. For hedges we provide various baseboard treatments that coincide with the garden you put them in. Most the time wood or metal will be used in an outdoor setting, and both of these baseboards can be painted to be any color you choose, giving you total freedom.
These steps will make the process for creating a more beautiful garden with artificial flowers while also making the process that much easier.
