The Benefits of Artificial Plants

See the reasons why people are using artificial plants…

There are advantages to artificial plants. Gone are the days when live plants were the norm. Today, artificial plants are making their way into indoor and outdoor spaces. Homeowners can opt for plastic or silk plants that are designed, shaped, and painted to look and feel like the real thing.  If you are looking for durable, low-maintenance plants, then faux trees and flowers are the best choices. They have many benefits compared to natural plants, and some of the advantages are listed below.

1. Low Maintenance is a key advantage of artificial plants

Artificial plants (Including artificial outdoor plants) require no sunlight, watering, pruning, or addition of fertilizers, thus you can have beautiful plants without the need for lots of maintenance.  You can dust them every 3 to 4 months and they last for many years.  The faux plants that Pacific Silkscapes provides are extremely easy to maintain and look after. While real plants need regular sunlight to grow in a healthy manner, artificial plants do not require regular exposure to sunlight. No need for fertilizer, pesticides, or herbicides.  You won’t have root rot or growth problems.  There is no need for soil.  You won’t require interior sunlight or temperature control.  They do not shed their leaves seasonally.  No more worrying about water and chemical damage to your carpet.

2. Security Improves

 If your building is a bank or government facility, you don’t need to have someone come to the water and maintain the plants. In addition, with Covid-19, there’s less exposure to outsiders spreading the virus.

3. No seasonal changes to worry about

Live plants seasonally shed their flowers and leaves and change their appearance.  Artificial plants are not affected by changes in seasons. Do they always stay great looking, even with very little care?

4. Bring the outdoors inside

High-quality realistic artificial plants and trees add “life” to a room. They have a calming effect and studies have shown that they improve productivity in the workplace.

5. Rearranging with Ease is an advantage of artificial plants

Since artificial plants don’t grow or require water, that also means they don’t have to be planted in natural soil. Additionally, they won’t be “shocked” by being relocated, unlike live plants.  Often, artificial plants are supported by materials like foam, making them more lightweight and easy to rearrange. All you need to do is pick the artificial plant up along with its supporting base and choose a new location.  This is another advantage of artificial plants.

6. Large selection

It doesn’t matter what your plant preferences are, Pacific Silkscapes has a wide range of landscaping products for you to choose from. At Pacific Silkscapes, we custom-design artificial trees and awesome silk flower arrangements. You can choose from almost any kind of foliage you could think of for a custom-designed tree, floor plant, or silk flower arrangement. Tell us what size you need, and what spray to use for the trees or flowers for the arrangement, and let us create magic.  We aim to create your perfect tree.

7. Cost-Effective and you get a return on investment

Another reason why you should consider installing artificial plants in your home or office space is that these silk plants may look upscale and expensive, but they are surprisingly affordable. Perfect for reducing maintenance costs. The faux silk plants are competitively priced. Unlike live plants, indoor and outdoor artificial plants do not require additional money for fertilizers or hiring a professional landscaper for maintenance and care. So, if you’re looking to decorate your corporate office, restaurant, casino or assisted living facility consider an artificial silk plant landscape from Pacific Silkscapes.  Check out our post on converting live plants to silk plants.

8. A great-looking product

With technology changing, the most recent artificial trees and silk flowers just keep getting more and more realistic.  The latest natural touch products look so realistic, you will think they are life. Now you can pretty much have your own unique silk plant landscape that will modernize and upscale your place of business.

9. Seasonal Displays

Many businesses like to update their displays based on the season or for upcoming holidays. Using artificial plants allows you to easily switch out certain species to reflect seasonal changes without having to sacrifice any live plants.

10. Artificial Plants are more Durable

The materials used in making non-natural plants are long-lasting and of advanced quality. Most plants are water and pest resistant due to the resilient coating applied to the leaves. Due to their durability, you can enjoy these plants for many years to come, without worrying about withering or pest and water damage.  Again, there are many advantages to artificial plants.

11. Artificial plants really are environmentally friendly

Artificial plants do not have as large a carbon footprint as you might assume. How is this possible? The key difference between the two is that artificial plants do not require the ongoing maintenance that their real counterparts do. Watering, fertilizing, soil replacement, and plant replacement – all these activities bring with them additional carbon emissions. And fortunately, artificial plants don’t require any of them! In addition, China manufactures artificial foliage with recycled materials whenever possible.

In addition, at Pacific Silkscapes, we recycle everything we could. We use real natural trunks for our trees and minimize the use of oil-based foam by mixing the material with recycled cardboard.
