Today we will be discussing the key advantages to using artificial versus authentic plants, and why people choose to use one or the other. In many cases this simply comes down to personal preference and spending power, people who love living plants while being able to afford and maintain them will do so. In other cases however, people choose to have one over the other because they have been presented the facts and found one (artificial plants) to be much more sustainable and longer-lasting than the other (living plants). Artificial plants are the future in regards to interior and exterior landscaping, and the reasons presented in this entry will solidify that claim. With so many new changes happening in our world from; weather, war, natural resource allocation, and domestic and foreign policy the need for a sustainable and long-lasting product is imminent. Commercial Silk International is the #1 leading providing of said products, and has been in the business for the last 30 plus years. They have perfected the art of creating an artificial plant product that looks just as realistic as its authentic counterpart. Also, with patented technologies that are tested for improvements every year they can make sure that the plants you buy are 100% safe to use and will withstand extreme weather climates. There are a lot of varying opinions when it comes to which plant product is the best, and with a lot of the same products on the market it is often hard to really know for certain. Commercial Silk International has made this simple for you by making all of their products in house and then testing them as well, allowing for complete transparency when it comes to the information we give you about the products. This is done for two reasons. First, it gives you as the consumer peace of mind when price shopping and looking at different products from a wide variety of companies. We know that in this industry there are a lot of competitors and they all seem to claim the same things, “Best UV protection on the market” and “We create the most realistic boxwood leaves”. However, it is hard to know whether these claims are true or not without knowing where their products are manufactured and tested from. That brings us to the second reason why we do everything in house, it helps us back up our claims of having the “Best UV protection” and the “Most fire-retardant foliage available”. We don’t need to mince words in order to keep our integrity, because everything we build is done under the extreme supervision of our project managers and tested by our highly capable fabrication department. Now that you know a little more about our history and what we strive to be as a supplier of artificial plants let us now get into the nitty gritty and talk briefly about the major benefits of choosing faux plant products.
The advantages of artificial plant products and hedges are endless. With so much work that needs to go into maintaining authentic plants, it should be easy to see how faux products are more beneficial. A simple plus for using these types of products is the low maintenance factor, and how you can literally place the hedge, topiary, ball wherever and not have to worry about it. That in itself is a huge benefit especially for people or who are looking to create a beautiful landscape but do not want to spend the extra dollars to maintain it 24/7. With the extra time saved just from keeping authentic foliage trimmed, watered, and spruced you would have already paid yourself back with the added expense from purchasing artificial plants. Add to that the savings you will have on your water bill alone, and artificial plants all of a sudden become something that saves money and time. As a logical solution artificial plants are becoming more and more the answer to many designers and architects projects.
If those benefits mentioned above weren’t enough then let us get into some more technical ways artificial plants and products are bringing value where authentic plants fall short. We at Commercial Silk International have other added benefits in the form of proprietary blends that we have patented throughout our years in production to make our products last and remain safe. With our patented PermaLeaf technology we can assure you that no matter what climate you place your products in, they will retain the same level of quality for years on end. We have built faux palm trees and artificial hedges for major theme parks like Disney in Florida and California with extreme sunlight being beamed down on them for upwards of 12 hours a day. Because of these instances we developed PermaLeaf, a tested and tried chemical treatment that can be added to your order to help alleviate stressing over the longevity of your product. With more and more people using artificial plants in states like California this technology is becoming more and more popular and other competitors do not have the same guarantee as we do.
As we begin to wind down on this particular entry we will talk about our other patented proprietary blend, ThermaLeaf. ThermaLeaf is our blend of chemicals made to ensure that the products you put inside confined spaces are up to par with current fire codes and are resistant to fire outbreaks. You may have heard about recent incidents inside casinos and various hotels where artifical plants were placed and the disaster was enormous. Many of the plants on the market are extremely combustible because of the plastic properties they contain. That is why the government has a set of strict fire codes for each state pertaining to the use of artificial plants inside of buildings. With these fire codes in mind we have developed ThermaLeaf to help you have peace of mind when purchasing our artificial foliage. With all these benefits it should be clear that artificial hedges and foliage are the way to go when designing any type of landscape project.

2) Apply one treatment of non-aerosol silk cleaner with spray applicator. Follow directions given for the specific brand.
Medium Dirt Accumulation (We suggest future cleaning every four months)
1) Remove loose dust with feather duster.
2) Apply one treatment of warm soapy water (Ivory soap works well, at a rate of
approximately 1 teaspoon per 2 gallons water), with a spray applicator.
3) Apply one or two treatments of non-aerosol silk cleaner. If more than one
treatment is required, allow plant to dry between applications.
Heavy Dirt Accumulation (We suggest future cleaning every one-two months)
1) Remove all loose dust with a feather duster.
2) Apply two treatments of soapy water (Ivory soap, at a rate of approximately
1 teaspoon per 2 gallons water), with a spray applicator. The wet leaves can
be hand-wiped after the second application, if desired.
3) Apply one to three treatments of non-aerosol silk cleaner. If more than one
treatment is required, allow plants to dry before re-application.
4) If plants are extremely dirty (ie: mixed with grease) they may never come

*Note: Dirt may collect in the center veins of the leaves and on any other area where water or cleaner would naturally drain. It is best to concentrate these areas for a repeat spraying.
