The ultimate key to beautiful indoors and outdoors: Faux Grass Carpets

The world is changing at a very rapid rate today. People are always busy with their work and leisure has become a luxury they dream to afford. People often thrive on the prospect of advancement in every aspect of life so that they can make the lives of themselves and their loved ones a bit more pleasant to live. The inventions of the state of the art products and facilities are an example of that. But somewhere down the line every person enjoys or gets relaxation amidst comfortable and pleasing surroundings which might include eye soothing sceneries or pleasant colors which often refers to the natural objects of beauty around us. 

Man has evolved a lot since those early days, when they used to live in the forests. But research has proven that presence of beautiful natural scenic objects often tends to reduce stress levels and yield more productivity from oneself. Moreover these objects such as grass carpets also add to the aesthetic appeal of the place making one feel a bit closer to the nature. This is a reason why such decorative faux plants are found in offices and lobbies of big hotels. 

The decision point: Artificial vs. Real

Now the point of decision comes where one needs to make that vital call between the real ones and the artificial ones. These days there are a variety of such artificial botanical products which are almost similar to the real ones and have their own benefits too. Grass carpets play a very vital role in this concept. The presence of a grass carpet not just adds to the beauty but brings that touch of nature at the most root level.

Why should one choose the faux flora?

Let us consider a scenario where we want the serene beauty of nature at our workplace without giving much time on maintenance or letting it be a worry for everyday. What are the options for one to replicate the exact beauty of nature in their offices where they flora will be equally vibrant everyday and would not die even though if they are not attended to with the utmost care. That’s today we are going to discuss why an artificial grass carpet is the best indoor and outdoor prospect for those office places.

The secret to heaven like indoors 

In the modern day world a person spends almost half of his day at the place where he works. Employers are very focused on the output from each and every employee due to this competitive market condition. One needs to perform well under extreme level of pressure on a regular basis which often causes high levels of stress and physical as well as mental fatigue which reduces the yield power.

The presence of a grass carpet inside one’s own office room will give him the comfort of a nice place and he might feel that he is working at a park and the concrete walls would not create the high level of pressure in him. It will also make the place look better and the colors will have a soothing effect on the eyes and the brain whereas the soft cushion under the feet will help in releasing all the physical exhaustion. 

Now the question comes where why should one use an artificial rug instead of the real one inside their office rooms. We will discuss that in the following points.

  • One is always expected to deliver high amount of work in a very short time, they will not have the time to water these carpets every day. But an artificial rug does not need watering and still they will be as fresh and vibrant as new. This helps in saving a lot of time and energy.
  • These kinds of rugs are very durable; they do not require any kinds of sunlight or fertilizers let alone the job of overseeing and watering in order to stay in the finest of conditions, which make them a very good option with respect to the long run as it proves to be a good investment option.
  • They will not grow or accumulate weeds in them. Thus the total concept of weeding and trimming is eliminated with these as they will remain in that exact shape and size as you prefer them to be for each minute of the entire time they are present. They will not lose their beauty and will never look like a mess.
  • They can be placed anywhere inside the office or a hotel lobby without the thought of the accompanying dust and dirt which is a very big worry with the real carpets. Just make sure to wash these carpets once in a while to remove that dust patches with a little bit of water and they will again look as fresh as new. 
  • They prove to be the best buy in the market due to the absolute absence of all the hassles and thus being very economical as they deliver worth every penny spent on them.

The key to the most eye soothing outdoors

In today’s world, office work is not limited inside the concrete walls of the buildings but rather people are trying to find various options so as to provide the employees with innovative surroundings which will motivate them to increase the productivity. People often tend to take their laptops out to the office lawns to work amidst tress because it is proven that natural greenery reduces stress and increase productivity levels on a very fast rate.

 Using these faux carpets instead of real ones at the office outdoors has several benefits as listed below which most of us are not even aware of, or even if they are aware, they easily tend to overlook these.

  • One does not need to sanction permission by a decorator and thus have full independence in designing the layout.
  • There is no need to wait for the things to be ready for use. They can be used as soon as they are laid out.
  • There is no need of a caretaker as these carpets require the most minimum amount of attention.
  • As these are not real grass, they do not depend on location, sunlight, water etc. they can be laid out anywhere according to one’s own wish.
  • The next best thing about these carpets is that one always has the freedom of relocating these carpets without any difficulties. 
  • There is no need of fertilizers, trimming or mowing as they don’t grow, catch problems or get soiled or accumulate weeds. All they need is appreciation and they will provide high amount of soothing effect to one.
  • Due to the fine quality of silk used to make such carpets, they are very durable and thus look fresh and new for a very long time.

A faux grass carpet can act as a single handed solution for all the decorative needs at your office-both indoors and outdoors. Due to the reason that these are completely life like and require almost negligible amount of time and money for maintenance, these carpets often prove to be the best solution for the purchasing needs for places like an office or a hotel lobby.

Water usage and artificial plants

Prairie Grass (Green) hspace=

In today’s blog post we will be discussing the usage of water and how certain types of usage can be labelled as a need vs. a necessity in terms of their relationship with artificial plants. When looking at the implications of using water in today’s world it is important to understand what is a want and what is a necessity. Before we even begin to talk about artificial plant products such as: foliage, trees, topiaries, and flowers we must look into these two topics. When it comes to water usage wants are something that is justified for using massive amounts of water to maintain. An example of this is turf on various sports field. If you have ever been an athlete and played on regular “authentic” grass you know it is MUCH better than the artificial turf that some large university and professional sports teams use. The small little beads that you find in artificial turfs completely ruin the fun and excitement of getting hit or making a huge play for the team while sacrificing your body for landing on the ground. With real grass it is a much more enjoyable playing atmosphere, but is it a necessity to have enjoyment for a sport we play? Could technology expand in the coming years so that artificial turf is less brutal on the body and more authentic to the touch? I believe both of the answers to these questions is yes, and that once people begin to realize the potential dangers of using water for things that are “wants” vs. “necessities” then we will finally begin to have a better way of life that is beneficial to use and the environment.

When it comes to artificial plant products it is imperative to see how beneficial to the success of our future. The lack of awareness when it comes to understanding how much humans are having an impact on the environment is quite scary to be honest. Each year we are given statistic after statistic about how we are breaking records of cold and heat, how freshwater is becoming more scarce, and how many animals are displaced from their environments because of deforestation. Water usage is the one that is most staggering, as millions of people go each day without clean freshwater. With these facts it would be hard to not feel some sort of emotion and feel sorry for the parts of the world that struggle with this. More likely than not if you are reading this blog entry then you do not deal with these issues, and it may be hard for you to think of ways to take action to combat them. The easiest way is to first recognize needs vs.wants and then look into the ways to change habits that are consuming too much water.If it is starting with your landscape design or home decor in terms of plants then this is a good time to look into wants and necessities. Yes, it is always nice to have all-natural plants that need to be cared for and nurtured to grow. There is a certain amount of enjoyment one gets from seeing something grow in front of their eyes under the care of there watchful eye. At the same time, using water to maintain large amounts of plants whether in your home or outside can be somewhat wasteful in this day and age. When natural resources are running short each year we must prepare to take the necessary precautions so our children's’ futures are not in jeopardy. Take some time to reflect on the ways you use water in terms of landscape design and home decors, and really think about that is important at them moment. As we dwell on these sometimes hard to answer topics we will go into the benefits of using artificial plants, and we will show you how us at Commercial Silk International has made the transition from authentic to fake simple and effective.

In a world where the environment seems to be taking a downward spire each year, it is time we look at the facts and start deciding on whether we want to make a change or keep going down the path in front of us. It does not matter whether you believe humans have a global impact or not, the facts are that more and more people live without freshwater and that more and more people waste it on things we feel are necessary. As we continue to live in this world we must look at the reasons we use water and try to justify it not for ourselves, but for the world and people around us.

Grass Application at the Embassy Suites Waltham

The Embassy Suites Waltham, formerly the DoubleTree Waltham, is located in the High-Technology, Pharmaceutical, and Life Sciences Belt, near Boston’s colleges and universities. The hotel was in need of a renovation and interior update to keep up with the fast pace of the neighborhood and stay within its brand standards of a heavy emphasis on botanicals. Embassy Suites Hotels was looking to reduce the cost of maintaining existing live plant material and obtain a hipper, fresher, cleaner look.

The Embassy Suites contacted Commercial Silk Int’l to explore the possibilities of a giant replica prairie grass addition.

Embassy Suites Hotels contractors immediately took to the idea of using giant replica prairie grass to create a unique display of contrasting green and lavender to instantly uplift the space. By utilizing existing containers, giant replica prairie grass was installed to add drama and color, and was executable on-site. The giant replica prairie grass added height and texture, and strengthened the design for this destination hotel. The addition of a rarely seen design element provided a modern aesthetic to what was already a chic guest experience.
