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.

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.
