Either you can buy a real topiary or you can use artificial topiaries. Apart from being live or artificial the main difference between both these types is that you don’t have to take a lot of care of the artificial plants while the live ones require your attention almost on a daily basis.
We'll show you 5 great ideas on how to decorate your home or office space with the help of artificial topiaries.
1. Using Herb Topiaries
The herb topiary is created by using the leaves of different kinds of herbs. In the artificial version you'll have to look at the leaves as they are generally made of plastic or fabric. The formation matters for artificial topiaries, so you'll need to look at the leaves and whether they look fresh or not. Placing one or two in an entry way can have a great effect when visitors walk into your home.
You can also place the herb topiaries in a group to create a stunning view point for a room.
2. Faux Boxwood Topiary
The artificial faux boxwood topiaries are ideal plants for an entryway or a hallway. They are pretty tall and usually found in ball shape connected to one another. If you can place them in the light they start shining a bit, which makes them look more beautiful.
You don’t need a lot of investment to buy these plants so they won’t break the bank.
3. Decorating with Jasmine Topiaries
Jasmine topiaries are ideal for placement near windows and even in gardens. Although you don’t need to place an artificial plant in the garden it definitely enhances the elegance of the space no matter where you put it. Some of our expert designers will place artificial plants along with live ones and you would be surprised at how well they blend in.
The live jasmine plant has a pleasant fragrance which can be duplicated using an essential oil such as the one below and the pot can be filled with pebbles to make it more beautiful.
4. Moss Topiary
Now we're talking about the smaller topiaries and the moss topiary is one of the more popular ones. It's a pretty cute plant which can be placed in smaller pots as it doesn't look as proportionate in larger pots unless you can put 3 to 4 of them together. Even the artificial version is pretty fluffy and bright and hard to tell from the original.
All it needs is a bit of dusting in the name of maintenance.
5. Shaped Topiaries
You can also create a shaped topiary such as the heart shaped one below by using a wooden frame or asking a plant provider to create a customized version of topiary for you. It's also very easy to create these topiaries in your home and all you need is a few supplies.
If you're new to arranging plants and flowers, don't worry, there are plenty of pre-made shaped topiaries available to you online or in store. Take a look around at our selection or if your feeling creative look at our stems and make your own. Either way you'll have a lot of fun creating something that will warm your home or office with beauty.
