Top 5 tips to choosing your artificial green wall installer

Now that you’ve decided to install an artificial vertical garden wall in your home, office, building or even restaurant, you need to hire a reliable installer.

And not just reliable, but someone who can give your artificial vertical garden that extra oomph. Because an artificial green wall is everlasting, you don’t want to be facing something less than stunning all the time.

But ultimately, it’s not just the looks that count. You want an artificial green wall installer who can truly give you peace of mind.

So here are the top 5 things you need to look out for in an artificial green wall installer.

  1. Selection of Artificial Plants

If your artificial green wall installer only has 5 or 10 types of plants, chances are your green wall is going to look very similar to his other clients’. Artificial green walls should reflect your taste, theme of the space, and make you happy. It should not be cookie cutter.

  1. Materials Used

While it may seem that all artificial plants are the same, they are, in fact, not made equal.

Ask your artificial green wall installer or supplier about the materials that go into those fake plants.

Do they have UV inhibitors inside them? That will ensure that they stay green or red or whatever colour they’re supposed to, even after some time.

Better yet, ask if the artificial vertical garden supplier is able to give a warranty for the green wall.

What is the metal used to hold the shape of the plant? Is it stainless steel, or some type of metal prone to rusting? If you’re installing the artificial green walls in hotel lobbies, children’s playground or anywhere that is accessible by the public, you generally want to be very sure about the safety of the vertical green wall. Rusty metal within the fake plants could end up injuring people.

  1. Installation Methods

How are the artificial plants secured to the wall? Artificial vertical garden walls are installed very differently from flower arrangements that we do for our homes.

  1. Understanding of Government Regulations

Does your artificial green wall installer understand building and construction regulations? Do they have the necessary work-at-height certification for working on your building façade or roof-top?

You can only truly have peace of mind when your supplier or installer knows what they’re doing.

  1. Track Record

Does the artificial vertical garden supplier have a good track record?

Better yet, can you see some of their work in person?

This will give you a good indication of whether the installer is professional and reliable in building your artificial green wall.
