Many people like decorating their homes with real plants but decorating with artificial plants can be a better option for many reasons. Decorating with fake plants can save time and money. Using artificial trees can many times be more aesthetically pleasing. Artificial trees can also be used indoors or outdoors.
Decorating with artificial trees and flowers can be a definite time saver. When decorating with them you do not have to worry about watering them every day.
You also do not have to worry about pruning them and getting rid of all of the dead leaves. The only upkeep involved with silk plants is dusting them, but this is something that you have to do with living plants also.
Using artificial trees and flowers versus real trees and flowers can also save you money. Many real plants require the use of special plant food that you must buy and mix in with the water. This special food can quickly add up in terms of costs especially if you have multiple living plants.
You also have to deal with the added cost of replacing real plants more often than fake plants. Silk plants if taken care of properly can last for many years, but real plants have a tendency to require being replaced more often due to them not living as long as we would like.
Silk plants are also more aesthetically pleasing to look at than real plants. They do not have the problem of their leaves turning brown like real plants do. They can also come with flowers that never fall off. With living plants you are constantly losing color when the flowers fall off. Artificial plants always maintain their green healthy look while real plants will lose their luster if not properly taken care of. And let’s face it, even those of us with the greenest thumbs can not keep real plants looking their best at all times.
Also, with the high quality of today’s artificial plants they can easily be used indoors or outdoors. Imagine having a spiral tree that you do not have to constantly trim into shape. Or imagine having a tree that you don’t have to worry about growing in front of your window and blocking your view.
These are just some of the benefits of using artificial trees outside as well as inside. You don’t have to worry about a drought turning your leaves brown. You also don’t have to worry about trimming and pruning flowers. Instead by using artificial plants you will always have plants have the perfect size and shape all the time!
