Custom Mini Artificial Hedges for Events or Restaurants

Custom mini artificial hedges at Charity event

Custom mini artificial hedges in faux planters define space for special events or restaurants and retail stores. Event coordinators use standard size eight foot tall artificial hedges at a variety of events and event venues as space and privacy dividers. The shorter mini hedges are not used so much for privacy, but for defining space and adding a decorative flair to an enclosed space.

Recently, an event in Los Angeles used mini artificial hedges for their VIP booth at an important charity event. The handsome faux mini hedges in planters set the VIP booth apart from the other booths at the event. The VIP area was also walled off with the larger 8’ tall artificial hedges.

The event business is huge in Southern California with trade shows, charity events, fundraisers, and sporting events happening nearly every weekend and several times during the week. Vendors constantly seek new ways to make their products stand out from the competition. Artificial boxwood hedges add color and texture to any event.

Custom Mini Artificial Hedges Uses

  • Trades shows
  • VIP areas
  • Restaurant dividers
  • Patios
  • Sidewalks cafes

Custom mini artificial hedges make great permanent fixtures at restaurants or retail spaces also. The small faux hedges are easy to move and are perfect for sidewalk cafes that set up and break down each day. Outdoor patios at restaurants employ them as space dividers. The hedges look very realistic and customers may not even realize they are faux.

Geranium Street USA manufactures mini artificial hedges with material they import directly. UV rated artificial hedges are great for outdoor use and won’t fade in intense sunlight. Geranium Street sells artificial hedges and all kinds of other artificial plant products nationwide, and their associate company, Evergreen Event Rental, rents the artificial hedges throughout California.

Artificial Replacement Hedge Wall at Hyatt Regency in San Diego

Existing trellis at Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency in downtown San Diego recently updated a trellis they had by their swimming pool when they removed the real hedge and installed an artificial replacement hedge. The real hedge was an ongoing problem and required ongoing maintenance. The leaves kept dying and falling into the pool and jacuzzi, which caused problems there. The management finally realized that artificial hedge was the solution to their problem.

The pros at Geranium Street USA supplied the UV rated artificial boxwood hedge for the job and installed it. There are many companies selling artificial boxwood hedge mats, but not all of them are the same. Like with anything else, you get what you pay for, and the cheapest is rarely the best. Cheaper brands fade quickly in the California sun, and Geranium Street only sells the very best artificial plant products, which they import directly from Asia.

Hedges and other real plants next to swimming pool often cause a problem. Pool maintenance people spend hours and hours getting leaves out of pools, and then fixing the pumps that are clogged with leaves. That is why many pool owners surrender and replace their real hedges by the pool with artificial hedges. Artificial hedges are maintenance and water free, and they look great.

Artificial Replacement Hedge Versus Real Hedge

  • Requires no maintenance or water
  • Leaves don’t fall into pools and spas
  • Will not die
  • Looks great all year long
  • One time expense

The trellis at the Hyatt Regency was already in place, so all they had to do was remove the live hedge and install the artificial replacement hedge. Artificial hedge is easily installed onto any existing wall, or even wood fence. If there is no existing structure, the pros at Geranium Street can custom design and build one.

Outdoor Privacy Dividers for Restaurants and Coffee Shops

Artificial hedge for privacy booths

Exciting new outdoor privacy dividers made with artificial plants are in style for restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, and other public spaces. Custom made artificial boxwood hedges create a barrier between diners, enhancing their dining experience and providing a comfortable level of privacy. These exciting artificial plant barriers look realistic and add more life than traditional wood barriers.

We have all been to restaurants and coffee shops and felt like we were sitting in a fishbowl. Every bit of your conversation is overheard by the people at the next table, and you hear every bit of theirs. Some restaurants think this is an efficient use of space to maximize profits, but that is short sighted thinking, because people don’t want to return to a crowded noisy space. Smart restaurateurs think of the long term and create spacious and private dining spaces for their patrons.

Dave Alfieri has designed restaurants for upscale restaurant chains all over the country. “We are seeing a trend, especially for upscale restaurants, where people don’t want to spend their hard earned dollars eating in a barn. The old chains that tried that approach are dying. Now, people want to dine in spaces that offer a higher level of comfort and privacy,” Alfieri said.

Artificial boxwood hedges, custom designed, are relatively inexpensive compared to other types of building materials. Southern California company, Geranium Street USA builds artificial hedges for all kinds of commercial and residential properties, usually as privacy dividers. The artificial hedges add life and color to bland spaces, at the same time allowing a certain amount of light to pass through.

Artificial Hedges define space

Geranium Street president, Robert Smith employs some of the smartest designers, welders, and builders to perfect the manufacturing process. “When we first started we didn’t really know what we were doing, but have learned through trial and error, what works and what doesn’t. That includes using the best materials, that don’t rust or fade. Right now, our products are better than they have ever been,” Smith added.

Artificial Hedges Used to Define Space and Create Privacy

Artificial Hedges define space

Restaurants, hotels, and event venues use artificial hedges to define space and create privacy. Groups often book areas within certain venues for fundraisers and other types of events, and they need to be blocked off from other areas within the space. A hotel manager explained it this way – “We have all kinds of groups, booking all kinds of events, and those groups don’t always mix well with our other hotel customers – so we create a private space within a space,” he said.

Artificial hedges are perfect for creating private areas either within a building, or on the exterior. The hedges look like real hedges, are attractive, and a tall enough and thick enough to assure privacy. The artificial hedges are easy to setup and breakdown also. Event rental companies rent the hedges, or sometimes venues buy their own and store them away until they are needed.

Weddings, fundraisers, trade shows, and other types of events often require a secure area outside the view of normal business. Hotels and restaurants want to host these types of events while conducting their day to day business, and the artificial hedges make that possible. Receptions, cocktail parties, and mixers, function perfectly inside their defined space.

Define Space with Artificial Hedges

  • Block off areas for private events
  • Use for crowd control
  • Create privacy zone
  • Use for decorative purposes

For large events, the portable artificial hedges serve as barriers for crowd control. Event promoters use the hedges to direct crowds into certain area, and also to hang banners and promotional materials. In some cases, the artificial hedge walls are purely decorative and used to enhance a theme at certain kinds of events.

Artificial Hedge Fence Surrounds Rooftop Deck in West Los Angeles

AC units and rooftop view before install

When property owners built a rooftop deck in West Los Angeles, they decided the view was less than ideal, so they installed an artificial hedge fence around the area. Although the rooftop deck looked very nice, the rooftop below was covered with utility boxes and ugly AC units that were not very pleasing to the eye. The owners wanted something that would block the unsightly view and not cost a fortune. They decided to use outdoor artificial boxwood hedge.

Outdoor artificial hedge mats are made from durable polyurethane and looks extremely realistic. Different leaf styles and shades of green are available. UV rated artificial hedge mats will not fade in the sun or deteriorate under extreme weather conditions. The plastic artificial hedge mats affix to any flat surface or installers can build them as freestanding.

For the West Los Angeles installation, designers first built a wood frame around the rooftop deck. Hedgemat installers then installed the artificial boxwood hedge mats onto the wooden frame and onto an existing fence, effectively blocking out the unsightly views. From the street, the artificial hedge fence looks like a real hedge. From the rooftop deck, the artificial hedge fence looks like a rooftop oasis.

Artificial Hedge Fence Advantages

  • Relatively inexpensive to install
  • Looks like a real boxwood hedge
  • Low Maintenance
  • Blocks unsightly views
  • Enhances privacy

In some cases, property owners install artificial hedge fences to block out incoming views. Privacy is a big issue in the city, and especially on rooftop balconies where people are completely exposed. Just as the artificial hedge wall in West Los Angeles blocked out unsightly views, other artificial hedges create a privacy barrier from those looking in. The artificial hedge wall in West Los Angeles also created a sound barrier from the nearby 405 freeway.
