What is Fake Ivy?
Fake ivy can turn any space into a lush garden without the hassle of maintaining a living plant. For example, faux ivy can transform a balcony into a lush, green area or add more life and color to the shady parts of your yard where plants won’t grow. You can even install it indoors.
Artificial ivy is made from plastic fibers that replicate the look and feel of real ivy leaves. Panels of faux ivy are easy to install almost anywhere both indoors and outdoors. In addition, these panels are highly weather-resistant and flame retardant, making them safe and simple to maintain.
If you love the look of ivy but don’t have the time to maintain it, artificial ivy is a great way to get the same natural look without the extra chores.
Benefits of choosing artificial ivy
Artificial ivy offers many benefits over the real thing, such as removing the time and cost of watering, trimming, and maintaining real ivy. Other benefits include:
Wide Range Of Uses
- Decorate the exterior and interior of your home
- Create a fake ivy fence, fake ivy wall
- Add more color to areas of your yard that don’t get much sun
- Keep a greener garden without exceeding water usage restrictions
Faux plants are a more affordable way to create a beautiful garden and home than natural plants, which need regular watering, trimming, and various plant supplements to survive a harsh climate. In contrast, artificial ivy panels have no additional costs after the initial purchase.
Non-allergens and toxins
One disadvantage of filling your garden with living ivy is that it can release a lot of pollen into the air, triggering allergies and hay fever for many people. Additionally, many types of ivy are mildly poisonous (not just poison ivy). That means it can irritate your skin when touched and make pets and wildlife ill if they eat it. Fake ivy does not have either of these problems, making it more suitable for households with pets or family members with allergies.
Where faux ivy can be used
The great thing about fake ivy is that you can install it just about anywhere, giving you a lot of creative freedom when designing both indoor and outdoor spaces. For example:
- Create an artificial ivy wall and add greenery to a blank area
- Create a fake ivy room decor to enjoy a natural-feeling space indoors
- Decorate your garden with a fake ivy trellis and create a faux ivy privacy fence
- Install panels indoors in lieu of a painting or poster
Can you use fake ivy outdoors?
Yes, our artificial ivy products are made from the same materials as our artificial turf. As a result, they can withstand rain and strong winds, and won’t be discolored by exposure to sunlight.
Artificial ivy plants require very little in the way of maintenance and upkeep. They can accumulate dust and other particles over time however, which can impact its natural look. As a result, the only thing you will need to do every couple of weeks to keep your ivy looking at its best is to brush or hose down the panels
