Do you want to transform a wall, fence or other object into a realistic-looking hedge? Below, I show you how to install artificial boxwood panels quickly and easily to create a luxurious living wall in your home!
Ideas for Using Faux Boxwood Wall Panels:
These deluxe plastic hedge panels look great as either a backdrop wall or just an accent piece. In other words, you don’t have to use that many tiles to create an impressive focal point in a room.
Their lifelike looking leaves along with their dense foliage make them a stunning addition to any home decor. Not to mention, they require virtually no maintenance or upkeep. (Maybe a light dusting every few months if you install them inside.)
Note: Don’t want boxwood? You can get panels with ferns, purple lavender, spider plants, white flowers or a combination of foliage instead (48 different options!).
Furthermore, faux boxwood can quickly conceal an ugly wall or object and transform it into something beautiful. For instance, does your home have ugly wall texturing or wallpaper?
Plus you can staple or tack the sections to an indoor wall without permanently changing the interior. For example, if you live in a rented apartment, simply remove them when you leave.
Note: These boxwood panels are not those cheap see-through privacy screens. In fact, their color won’t fade if you use them outdoors. Plus, they don’t carry that awful plastic odor if you choose to install them inside.
How to Install Artificial Boxwood Panels:
I love these faux plant wall panels because they are so simple to install. Use the snap locks around the edges to secure the tiles together, then nail, tack or staple them to the wall.
At wall corners, light switches, etc.., just trim the plastic to size with regular scissors. This material is very forgiving and easy to work with.
The DIY video below demonstrates how to connect the pieces together and attach them to a wall. (Keep in mind that she’s using it as a temporary backdrop, therefore the nails don’t completely go into the wall.)
Alternatively, you can create a boxwood hedge outside. For example, if you want to transform a chain link fence into a boxwood hedge privacy wall, use the zip ties included in the package. You don’t need any tools, except for maybe a pair of scissors.
Note: Because the leaves and mesh are plastic, you can install these wall panels in a bathroom. And since bathrooms are typically smaller rooms, it takes fewer panels to make a make a big impact. (Plus, they’ll cost less too!)
How to Get the Best Price on These Faux Hedge Mats:
Currently, the price of this 12-tile set comes to about $95 and covers up to 33 square feet. For example, you can cover a 4 foot wide stretch of an 8-foot tall wall floor-to-ceiling.
Compared to Home Depot, you save almost $50 because their price for 12 tiles comes to approximately $141. That said, their hedge panels do include small white flowers.
On the other hand, Walmart carries a virtually identical 12-piece living wall set for the same price. In other words, after shopping around, I think $95 is a great deal. (It comes out to approximately $8 per panel.
