Artificial flower walls are an easy way to add colour and cheer to dull spots in your garden. Whether you’re a time-tested green-fingered gardener, a complete novice or simply a busy parent with no time for watering and weeding, you’ll find inspiration in this gallery for using artificial flowers and trellis to create the perfect flower wall display.
Spring is coming to a close, summer is on the doorstep and a spate of wet weather has spurred on plenty of growth in the garden. If you were super organised through the early months of spring, you may well be staring out at a stunning palette of colourful blooms and lush green. But not everyone has the time to spend sowing seeds and tending to their patch – in fact, the Covid crisis has left many of us working parents run off our feet with additional jobs. This is where artificial flowers can be a real godsend – adding vibrant bursts of cheer to any gloomy corner, fence or pot.
Even if you’ve lovingly planted your garden and you’re now enjoying the fruits of your labour, there are always places in the garden that are hard to plant for. Fences can be trick to brighten, with climbers taking a while to establish and soil/sun not always creating the perfect conditions. Shady corners, unsightly walls and ugly features such as bin stores are other problem areas where establishing a jazzy display of kaleidoscopic colour is a near impossibility. Artificial flowers and trellis are a great way to tackle these problem spots.
Expandable trellis panels are a great way to get artificial flowers onto surfaces. You can screw or nail the trellis onto anywhere then attach your flowers and greenery, covering unsightly walls or boring fences in an instant. Flowers can be bought in bunches, allowing you to mix and match lots of different blooms. Foliage can be bought in bundles, allowing you to weave it into the trellis exactly where you want it.
