Before we begin, let's look at the most influencing offices in the world, which include the big names: Google, Apple, Universal Studios, Disney, Samsung, and WeWork, among others. What sets these commercial spaces apart from the other 'stacked-matchbox' style offices, are the aesthetic aspects. Green is the new black when it comes to architecture.
After carefully going through the latest trends in green architecture, we present you one of the front runners: Faux Boxwood Hedges. This piece of artificial plant is making subtle, but big differences in both indoor and outdoor commercial landscaping. We know, you're curious to find what the hype is all about, so without further ado, let's find out why.
Modern faux boxwood hedges are precision cut to finesse. It doesn't matter how strong your OCD may be, you'd find it hard to criticize the design. They have almost similar texture throughout, which obviously depends on how you want it to appear. In fact, many botanists now collaborate with the designers to get a realistic and perfect leaf structure.
The cover of lush green and deep green is mesmerizingly pleasing to the eyes. Pick a standard or customized boxwood hedge smartly, and you can master the art of aesthetics. Well planned and optimally placed faux hedges can be an absolute eye-candy. We bet, it would drive the third deadly sin out of your compatriots; jealousy.
Are you worried about what size or color to pick?! Well, don't worry, the designers can customize the hedge according to your demands. Yes, we know you're fussy and don't like it when something doesn't happen the way you want it to be.
You can choose the shape of the hedge, whether you're a big fan of the spheres, cuboids or cubes, you're all covered. Apart from the shape, you can choose the size of the hedge. Pick a long faux boxwood hedge for fencing, or a tall faux boxwood hedge for some privacy. Well, how about a flat faux boxwood hedge for a backdrop?!
Versatility- Indoor and Outdoor applications
Gone are those days when bricks and wood were the only things you could use as a fence. Faux Boxwood Hedges can be used to fence in your homes or even out of doors for some privacy. Please don't forget what an amazing backdrop a hedge can be if you're having a private party or a 'shin-dig'.
Pro-Tip: Recently, boxwood hedges have been used for creating amazing Japanese style Zen gardens and cafeterias. Assimilate a few pebbled, rock-cut pathways, a few artificial plants and a couple of statues coupled with park benches. You could form an eclectic mix and include a Zen-Park in your office space, which would be the best place to vent some steam. We are sure that you would love the new facelift for the working environment.
Fire and UV retardant - for safe indoor use
Earlier, one major issue about using hedges indoor was the UV, CFC and lead emissions, which is due to the paints used. But, now, natural dyes which are free from these hazardous emissions are available in the market. Despite all these additions, these faux hedges are botanically correct, which gives them a lofty perch in the department of commercial landscaping.
Well, yes, these are basically plastic, as a layman would call it. But, faux hedges now are processed and engineered (yes, engineered) in such a way that they can resist fire and temperatures up to a certain level. They now pass through dozens of fire test and finally approved by several international quality standards.
High quality and durable - for rigorous outdoor use
Planning on throwing a nice birthday bash?! Looking for an off-the-wall way to pep things up?! Use these faux hedges in your lawn without worrying about the wear and tear. Faux boxwood hedges are specially designed with a treated wooden box, which can stand the ruthlessness of the natural deteriorating agents.
The wood is not the only durable part of the hedge. The leaves are engineered (Yes, engineered. They are!) to withstand the searing sun, so much so that you'd collapse from a sun-stroke, but these tiny stalwarts will stand firm. In addition to this, they are painted with a high-grade pigment which does not fade from regular natural exterior exposure.
The durability, quality, and UV & fire retardation means that faux boxwood hedges are low maintenance. Well, unlike your wives or girlfriends, they're bound to be with you for a long time even if left unattended for a long, long time. They'd require a yearly pampering in the form of mild dusting, which takes not more than 10 minutes. (The second best way to spend those 10 minutes)
The design of boxwood hedges provides you the option of moving them around without creating a mess. Are you bored with the sight of the hedges every time you pass through the garden? No worries, move them indoors and give them some shelter. Bored of them stalking you indoors, place them outside and watch them take every bit of your tantrum without a sound.
Basically, it's a wooden box which doesn't weigh like a mammoth. So, if you're complaining about thin biceps and flat chest and lack of muscles, let us tell you how easy it is. Installation is the last thing you'll be worried about. The faux hedges use high-quality resins, and it is durable and easy to install. You can do it yourself or with the help of a couple of friends.
On top of that, you can easily mount it on your rooftops, place it in your garden or indoors. In most cases, the hedges are pre-fixed to the boxwood. There, is it hassle-free enough now, lazy ones? Just place it. That is all that you have to do.
