Pre-made Boxwood Gardens in the City

Friday, July 6th, 2012

When you walk into a garden of carefully manicured boxwood greenery, you cannot deny it’s calming and beautifying effect. Even though we live in a city, we still feel compelled to create this type of sanctuary at home. That is why we will always bring plants indoors for comfort and beauty. And what if one is blessed with a terrace or rooftop garden in the city? Many people opt to use our artificial boxwood to create their own low-maintenance boxwood garden.

After we advised some customers on building custom boxwood pieces for their terraces, we began to carry pre-made boxwood hedges and topiaries. We also expanded the variety of modular boxwood mats to include different types of boxwood leaves and different sizes. We were thrilled when customers sent us photos of their projects. The boxwood made a huge impact in their quality of living and maintenance was very minimal.

We do have some advice on building your boxwood garden in the city. Do make sure you secure the plants to your fence or wall if you have a windy terrace. When the color fades under the sun over a few years, we have heard that people use floral spray paint to touch it up. After some time, Customers also do come back to us to replace their artificial boxwood because they are happy with the durability of them over the years.

If you have a large space, or if you are working on a more complicated design, you may need to contact a professional for help. We recommend our long time friend and customer, Robert Urban. He has been a gardener and designer in New York for many years. He uses our pre-made boxwood pieces in many different designs and is wonderful at keeping everything looking as if they were natural. You can see photos of his works below using our pre-made boxwood products. For more info about Robert Urban, please visit his website:
