Artificial plants are not always the first choice when considering greenery. With the attractive colours and scents of living plants, many would rather make the additional investment in order to enjoy flowers and plants the way nature intended.
However, this can often turn out to be a bad investment. If your plants are not cared for properly they will quickly look weary and die. In recent years, the intricate design and development of artificial plants has advanced, resulting in incredible realism and so more people are choosing to enhance their homes and workplaces with artificial plants.
We’ve listed 8 reasons Artificial Planting may be the right choice for you:
1. They’re Low Maintenance
Or ‘Next to no’ maintenance! As they’re synthetic, the only care required to keep artificial plants looking their best is the occasional wipe with a damp cloth. With no need for feeding, pruning or pest control artificial plants are great for those who want no-hassle upkeep. This also gives you the freedom to position your plants in high or inaccessible areas – No maintenance means there is no need for access.
2. They’re Long Lasting
Obviously, being artificial, they won’t die! Also your favourite plant or flower can always be in season and looking its best. At Oasis we’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading providers of Artificial plants & flowers and we have a beautiful range of true-to-life plants to choose from.
3. They’re Flexible
As well as being available in a range of colours & sizes, artificial plants will last and look great anywhere as they have no special requirements. Place them in bright sunlight or dark corners, cold or warm areas or even hang them upside down! With artificial greenery you can truly get creative and position plants wherever you like without worrying about them wilting or dying.
4. They’re Hypoallergenic
- No pollen = No Hay-fever
5. They’re Resilient
Accidents happen in all industries, but knocks and spillages are more frequent within busy environments such as hospitality, offices and public spaces. Artificial plants are much more resilient and are unlikely to be damaged when involved in any accidents.
6. They Improve Mood & Productivity
Although artificial plants aren’t able to filter impurities from the air like real plants, they still have a very positive effect on morale. This is because just looking at plants and pictures of natural landscapes can improve mood, concentration and productivity levels!
7. They’re Clean
- No soil spillages
- No water spillages
- No leaves or petals shed
- No insects
8. They’re Cost Effective
If you love plants and flowers but don’t want the cost of replacing or maintaining them, invest in some artificial ones. The vast majority are very realistic and will be sure to stand the test of time.
