Artificial Hedge Wall Offers Solution to Block Nuisance Neighbors

Artificial Hedge Wall Offers Solution to Block Nuisance Neighbors

Artificial boxwood hedge in Los Angeles An artificial hedge wall is a relatively inexpensive solution to block out unsightly views of nuisance properties and also create a privacy barrier. This is the age of McMansions and houses are getting bigger and bigger, so privacy is now more of an issue than ever in many neighborhoods. On top of that, some of these monstrosities are just plain ugly to look at – they ruin the aesthetic of the neighborhood, and there is very little property owners can do about it.

Growing real hedges can take years, not to mention a lot of water and maintenance. Building a wall or tall fence is also very expensive and may also look plain ugly – creating a prison effect. Artificial hedge walls look like real hedges and are relatively inexpensive to install.

The artificial hedge wall is made with artificial boxwood hedge mats, a steel frame, and is often placed into a faux planter of either wood or steel. In many cases, these faux hedges can be installed without acquiring a building permit, because they are not permanent fixtures.  Artificial hedges can be affixed to existing walls or fences, or they can be used as fence extensions. The other option is to install freestanding artificial hedges.

  • Affix to existing walls or fences
  • Install as freestanding
  • Low maintenance

Like anything else, there is a big difference in quality when it comes to artificial boxwood hedge mats. It is important to use only UV protected artificial boxwood hedge material, or it will quickly fade in the sun. Some inferior products fade quickly, or turn brittle and deteriorate in the elements. The steel frames may rust quickly if they are not painted with rust proof paint.

Privacy Pods Developed for Legal Marijuana Growers in California

Privacy Pods Developed for Legal Marijuana Growers in California

New privacy pods for backyard marijuana growers will soon be available in California following the recent passage of proposition 64. California voters voted in Proposition 64 on November 8th, that allows recreational use of marijuana in the state. Sections of the law will not go into effect until 2018, but adults in California can grow up to six marijuana plants for personal use effective now.

Medical marijuana is currently legal in California, and has been for over a decade, Medical marijuana card holders can legally grow marijuana plants for their personal use, but now all adults in California have that same privilege.  Millions of adults over the age of 21 can now legally grow marijuana in their homes, in their backyards, or on their balconies for their personal use, without fear of being arrested.

Many of the law’s provisions remain vague. For instance, local governments have much of the say  on how the law is enforced. Communities can ban dispensaries within city limits, but they must allow individuals to cultivate up to six plants for personal use. Municipalities can also limit personal marijuana cultivation to indoor only, but in some locations  growers can plant outdoors, as long as it not in plain sight.

Privacy Pods

  • Designed for backyard or balcony use
  • Allow plants up to six feet tall
  • Camouflaged with artificial vines and ivy
  • Allow natural in
  • Discourage theft

Geranium Street USA is currently developing fence extensions and grow pods for legal weed growers in California. The weather is ideal for marijuana farming and outdoor cultivation is more cost effective than indoor growing. Privacy is an issue, however. The law maintains that marijuana plants stay hidden from view. Another concern is that marijuana plants attract thieves.

Fence extensions solve the privacy problem in most cases. Geranium Street installs fence extensions that add from one foot to four feet in height to existing fences or walls. Artificial hedge fence extensions look very realistic and add the needed height for privacy. Geranium Street’s privacy pods allow marijuana plants to grow over six feet tall, while camouflaged with artificial vines and ivy.

“We expect alot of interest in our fence extensions and grow pods as Proposition 64 kicks into gear,” said Geranium Street owner, Bob Smith. For more information, visit their website, or call sales manager Martin Portilla at (760) 891-6492.

Climaleaf Artificial Hedge for Versatile Use

Climaleaf artificial hedge mats

Climaleaf artificial hedge is an amazing new product on the artificial plant market that gives the competition a run for its money. A lot of the artificial boxwood hedge currently available is manufactured with cheap materials and it rapidly fades and deteriorates in direct sunlight and outside elements. Climaleaf artificial hedge mats are specifically made for all extreme climates, both indoor and outdoor.

Artificial hedge made with inferior ingredients is like cheap carpeting – it looks good when it is first installed, but a year later needs replacing because it doesn’t hold up. Like anything else, you get what you pay for and cheap artificial hedge mats don’t stand up to extreme weather conditions. We know that many climates are brutal to all kinds of manmade and natural materials. The sun is relentless during the day, and then temperatures turn frigid at night, causing many manmade materials to deteriorate. .

Artificial plant mats from Climaleaf come treated with the best grade UV protectant available. While the competition just sprays the protectant on like sunscreen, but then similar to sunscreen, it washes and wears off. Climaleaf employs durable polyurethane that has the protectant applied to the mix during manufacturing and that makes all the difference. Climaleaf artificial hedges can survive intense sunlight, with no physical deterioration or fading.
