Faux greenery is being used in restaurants, hotels, luxury apartment buildings, casinos, and retail spaces for decorative and practical purposes. Some restaurant chains are even implementing artificial hedges, topiaries, and fake trees into their whole design motif. One new restaurant in Torrance, California used artificial hedges throughout their new location, and the owner plans on doing similar designs at all of their locations.

Artificial boxwood hedge is being used as a wall covering at many commercial spaces, and can also be used to create freestanding and portable faux hedges for a variety of uses. In many cases, the artificial hedges are used to block a view, or for privacy purposes. At the new Torrance restaurant, artificial hedges are being used to extend the height of the booths, creating privacy for the patrons who dine on the patio.

Artificial hedges can be built to be portable and moved around for various reasons inside a restaurant. One hotel in Santa Monica purchased several portable artificial hedges to create privacy barriers wherever they want them inside the restaurant, and then quickly move them away when not needed. The portable hedges are 8’ tall and 4’ wide, and are equipped with castor wheels so that one employee can easily move them.

Artificial topiary balls, artificial trees and other artificial plants are also being widely used at many commercial locations. The fact is that artificial plants look better than they ever have before. Many restaurant patrons don’t even know that the artificial plants are not real. Artificial plants designed for outdoor use are also better than they have ever been before and don’t fade and deteriorate in the sun.

Faux Greenery Advantages

  • No water of trimming required
  • More dynamic than traditional wall covering
  • Great for theme
  • Increased privacy
  • Improves acoustics

Artificial hedges also absorb sound better than hard flat surfaces, thereby improving acoustics in a restaurant. We have all been in busy restaurants where people have to shout at each other to be heard. The acoustics are so bad in some of these restaurants because echoes are a problem. Artificial boxwood hedge can actually absorb many sound waves and reduce echoes.
