Artificial outdoor plants are a great solution for those who want to add some greenery to their home or office, but don’t have the time, space or patience to care for real plants.
The best part is that they look real — almost. They come in many different styles and sizes, which gives you plenty of options when it comes to decorating your home or office.
Artificial plants can be used indoors and outdoors. If you live in a cold climate and want to decorate your patio with artificial plants, you’ll need to make sure they’re protected against the elements by keeping them under a covered patio or porch area.
Artificial plants are made from plastic, which is a material that can withstand a lot of abuse. However, if you leave the artificial plants outside all year long, they will eventually start to show signs of wear and tear. This can happen even if you live in an area where there aren’t many harsh winters or other extreme conditions. Here are some tips on how to protect your artificial outdoor plants:
One of the most common ways people protect their artificial outdoor plants is by putting them in a box or basket with holes in it. This will keep them safe from the elements, but it can also make them look less realistic. If you do this, make sure to use a plant pot or basket that matches your artificial plant’s color scheme.
Another way to protect your artificial outdoor plants is by using moss or other ground cover to surround them. You can also wrap them up in burlap if they come with one included in their packaging.
If you want your artificial outdoor plants to look more realistic, you can place them on top of rocks or logs so that they look like they’re growing out of them instead of being placed on top of them.
If you’re using a fake plant outdoors in the winter, make sure it’s waterproof! When you water your plant, don’t overdo it. Watering too much can cause mildew or mould to grow on the surface of the material. You’ll also want to avoid getting water on the leaves of your artificial plant if possible.
Don’t leave your artificial outdoor plants out in direct sunlight. If they do get too hot, they may start to melt or warp. If you’re using fake flowers outside in the summertime, don’t put them near fireplaces or grills where they could catch on fire from sparks and embers flying off of them (this goes for real flowers too).
Make sure that any silk florals you may be using are made from 100% polyester fabric (not nylon) as nylon will melt when exposed to heat sources like candles or incense burners.
