Faux boxwood topiaries include artificial topiary balls, bushes, trees, and other artificial topiaries. The word faux defined is – made in imitation, artificial. Faux plants and topiaries are artificial but they are manufactured so well that they actually look real. Many times, people have to reach out and touch these new artificial plants to make sure they aren’t real.
New manufacturing processes have made artificial plants UV resistant so that they don’t fade in direct sunlight. Artificial hedges are also available with a fire resistant rating and that is especially important as people in arid areas of southern California prepare for fire season. Faux topiaries, hedges, and bushes are a safe alternative to real plants in fire country.
Interior designers are buying up the faux boxwood topiaries like hot cakes. Artificial boxwood balls look great in reception areas in offices, hotel lobbies, and restaurants. Artificial topiaries look great next to fountains, in hallways, foyers, and near staircases. A pair of faux boxwood topiary balls placed at the entrance to a home add a regal touch, no doubt.
Fake boxwood topiaries also look great when placed within exterior landscapes. They can be placed among real plants and flowers, or in rock gardens, making them almost indistinguishable from real plants. Many people are placing them on balconies, verandas, and sun decks. In almost every case, the faux boxwood topiaries make great conversation pieces.
