What is artificial hedging?

Artificial hedging refers to synthetic greenery designed to closely replicate the look and functionality of authentic hedges. Crafted by manufacturers to resemble the color, texture, and density of real hedges, fake hedging panels offer homeowners the aesthetic benefits of natural foliage without the need for ongoing maintenance.

Artificial hedge walls are available in diverse shapes, sizes, and materials that contribute to the overall durability and lifelike quality of each product. Their versatility makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Many individuals utilize the boxwood hedge to establish privacy screens, conceal unappealing features, or elevate the visual appeal of outdoor spaces.

How long does an artificial hedge last?

Our faux hedges are designed for long-lasting durability, but predicting their exact lifespan can be challenging. Numerous factors, such as your location and the prevailing weather conditions, can influence their longevity.

Indoor artificial green wall can endure for up to 8 years or even longer if well-maintained. However, artificial hedges for outdoor exposed to sun, wind, and rain, their lifespan may be reduced. For outdoor use, the majority of our artificial living wall products are expected to last for a minimum of 5 years.

How to pick the best-quality artificial hedging?

With so many options available on the market and numerous manufacturers competing for your attention, the quest for high-quality artificial hedge panels can become overwhelming. Hence, it’s crucial to comprehend the key aspects that define quality. Here are the 5 aspects you need to keep in mind:


To ensure you’re acquiring a high-quality product, seek out artificial hedging that closely replicates the texture, color, and shape of their natural counterparts to the point where they are virtually indistinguishable.

As a bonus tip, take note of consistency, observing whether all products exhibit a similar appearance. Significant variations between hedges of the same type, such as differences in density or color saturation, suggest that the manufacturer may not be among the industry’s finest.

Touch and Density

If you have the chance to closely examine a faux hedge panel, run your fingers through the foliage to gauge the texture and density. Top-tier faux hedging will feature leaves that feel remarkably realistic, capturing the intricate veining and curves found in natural leaves.

The texture should be smooth rather than rough. When shaken, the faux foliage should exhibit movement akin to real greenery, not stiff like plastic sticks.

Grid Thickness

The quality of an artificial hedge isn’t solely determined by the faux foliage. On the contrary, the plastic grids that secure the faux leaves are equally important. If longevity is your goal, opt for fake hedges backed by a thick and sturdy grid.

If you choose an artificial hedge with an overly thin and floppy grid, your product will be more vulnerable and prone to breaking down in harsh weather conditions.


Artificial plant suppliers or manufacturers who are conscientious about their faux hedge production will ensure strict adherence to regulations and the highest industry benchmarks at every stage. Yet, as an ordinary consumer, discerning this diligence can be challenging. Therefore, before investing your money in any artificial hedging, it’s prudent to conduct research.

Examine the supplier’s online platforms, scouring for endorsements or certifications from external entities. Take, for instance, EdenVert, which holds ISO certification and complies with RoHS and REACH standards. These credentials offer insight into our production methods and materials rationale.

Fading Degree

Finally, let’s talk about fading. The occurrence of fading is prevalent in low-quality artificial greenery. Fortunately, there’s no need to take a gamble to determine the fate of your faux hedge.

Rather, focus on examining the materials comprising the artificial hedge and verify the presence of UV-resistant properties. A high-quality faux hedge is meticulously crafted to withstand fading caused by extended sun exposure, ensuring its color remains vibrant even in outdoor settings. Opting for EdenVert as your supplier ensures peace of mind, as their artificial hedging comes equipped with the most robust built-in UV protection available.
