San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2013
New construction projects worldwide are calling for green areas inside and outside buildings – creating a pleasing and calming atmosphere. Artificial foliage, including artificial boxwood hedge on walls is being used because it is inexpensive, durable, and requires little maintenance.
Mark Steele, San Diego Architect at M.W. Steele Group, Inc talks about using artificial hedge and foliage in commercial and residential properties. "My wife and I started the San Diego Architect firm 30 years ago and use our house as a ongoing project. What we like about the artificial hedge is that we created a uniform surface where you don't see any seams," Mark added.
Artificial foliage such as artificial boxwood hedge mat not only looks good, but has sound proofing qualities. Artificial hedge mats applied to walls can reduce echoes dramatically. Hedge mat panels placed strategically will deflect sounds from carrying across rooms or courtyards. This decreases stress and increases privacy in an office environment.
The green fad in building design caught on in Berlin, carried in booming Australia, Dubai, and Sao Paulo. Architects globally are using artificial foliage in ever more creative way, combining the green artificial plants with some real ones, rock, marble and water, and glass. The results are pleasing to both eye and ear as people no longer have to shout over one another in spaces with bad acoustics.
Municipalities are also using artificial foliage on sound walls bordering freeways, on school properties, courthouses, and other municipal buildings. Artificial foliage has been proven extremely cost effective and durable. Online retailers of artificial foliage can also provide large quantities of artificial hedge mat, bushes, plants, and flowers at wholesale prices.
