Extraordinary Silk Plant Sky Gardens

artificial plant sky garden Sky gardens have become a popular landscape choice for roof tops on buildings, restaurants and lounges, often competing for deck space. A green wall effect created with UV rated outdoor artificial plants creates ambiance in an otherwise dull high-rise building outdoor area. These silk plant garden decks utilize vertical plants to maximize a restricted area, withs a curtain of artificial plants against vertical structures. Whatever the type of chosen sky plants, a vertical plant garden can pose challenges that professional landscapers have to grapple with to ensure a visually stimulating atmosphere without limiting space.

In our example of an extraordinary sky garden, artificial plants were installed on a partially covered food court deck area. The outdoor rated silk plants were vertically placed on part of the deck and also covered outdoor concrete columns, which added visual interest to the atmosphere and enhanced the height of the ceilings. artificial roof top plants

Initial considerations of using tiered planters and growing live plant creepers on wire mesh were some of the ideas explored to cover these outdoor concrete columns. However, an artificial plant solution was the most cost efficient and the most practical. Studies of the site revealed that light would not be adequate for living plants to grow on the deck area. Artificial plants with outdoor UV protective properties could withstand the heat, harsh winds and temperature fluctuations of the high rise column's vertical surfaces. Although silk plants do not require very much maintenance, the green wall was mounted on tracks to enable accessibility for the maintenance team.

This fake plant green wall is an example of how high rise landscape limitations can be solved with quality plants and creative thinking.

Faux Flowers - Outdoor, Tropical Faux Flower Arrangements & Balls

faux flowers

Faux flowers, including outdoor faux flowers, tropical faux flowers, faux flower arrangements, and faux flower balls, are useful and delightful for a full range of decorative occasions. Such occasions include weddings, lawn and office parties, birthday events and more. Since real flowers are expensive and don’t last long, faux flowers also make great permanent decoration for homes and offices.

Faux Flowers Description: There are over 270,000 species of flowers. Evidence of flowers dates back to prehistoric times and have been discovered through flower fossils. The evolutionary history of flowers extends over 125 million years. During this time, an assortment of more than 125,000 flower species has developed, and faux flowers are modeled after many of these species.

[more] faux tropical flowers A flower, also known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants. The biological function of the flower is the union of the male sperm with the female ovum to produce seeds. It begins with pollination, followed by fertilization, leading to the formation and dispensing of the seeds. Seeds are the next generation, and serve as the primary means by which individual species are dispersed across the landscape.

Pollen from flowers can be transferred in many different ways – wind, water, insects, birds, bats, and other animals. Sometimes flowers use a combination of these sources to pollinate. Some flowers have glands called nectaries that act as an incentive for animals to visit the flower. Some flowers also have patterns, called nectar guides, that show pollinators where to look for nectar.

Four kinds of leaves make a complete flower – carpels and stamens (primary reproduction structures), and petals and sepals (secondary structures). If a flower lacks any of the 4 basic parts, it is called incomplete. The many species of flowering plants are usually distinguished from one another by the way these 4 basic parts are modified. Faux flowers, in kind, will replicate these parts to provide for an authentic look and feel.

faux outdoor flowers Faux Outdoor Flowers Geography: Flowers grow in many different regions of the world, and most modern faux outdoor flowers are patterned after the floral characteristics found in each region. Some flowers grow in tropical zones (Africa, Indonesia, China, Australia, Mexico, Southern United States, etc). Other flowers grow in temperate zones (South America, New Zealand, Europe, Ireland, Scotland, Japan, etc), and still other flowers grow in polar zones (Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, etc). With a savvy blend of craftsmanship and technology, faux outdoor flower producers are able to make startlingly legitimate products that prove to be effective long term and low-care decorative options. These designer faux flowers are excellent options for creating hanging flower baskets, window box flower plant displays or decorative flower pots.

Faux Tropical Flower Types: It could be argued that tropical flowers are the most vibrant and attract the most attention, which is why faux tropical flowers are often in such high demand. As discussed in the previous section, tropical flowers can be find in a variety of countries, and include such exotic species as the Anthurium, Bougainvillea, Calla Lily, Ginger, and more. Faux topical flowers that can be made to resemble these varieties will look great at events, offices, and homes, and can be very persuasive for designers looking to convey a tropical sentiment or theme for commercial projects.

faux flower arrangements Faux Flower Arrangements Usage: Faux flower arrangements are used for many different occasions - births and christenings, weddings, gifts of remembrance like a bon voyage party, welcome home party, or thinking of you gift, funerals, and in churches. Faux flower arrangements can also be used for corsages or boutonnieres, and can be passed down to the next generation. Flower arrangements almost always have a grand effect on people, whether the intentions are romantic, apologetic, or conciliatory, and faux flower arrangements can have the same effect, only for longer. The most popular commercial use of faux flower arrangements are in hotel lobby waiting areas, reception desk flowers for corporate office lobbies and large floral arrangements for restaurants, casinos & hospitals.

faux flower balls Faux Flower Balls: Faux flower balls make great pew and reception decorations and are adorable for flower girls and attendants to carry. Faux roses are very common when making faux flower balls, but other kinds are popular as well, including daisies and rosebuds. Typically, flowers with open petals work well. Best of all, flower balls can be made at home to save costs, though it certainly could be argued that a faux flower balls manufacturer will be able to produce a more convincing product.
