Plastic flowers have become increasingly common in both indoor and outdoor gardens these days, and this is mainly because they are practical and more colorful compared to actual blooms. They come in vibrant colors that do not easily fade, and they are not subject to changing seasons. So yes, you can still enjoy their presence at the middle of winter.
However, you cannot just add plastic flowers in your garden. Getting them as garden adornments may add a pop of color, but they don’t always work as expected. Hence, before getting a bunch of artificial bloom in the home depot, here are some key points to remember:
1. Use plastic flowers only in the least maintained parts of the garden. Plastic flowers are good adornments for foliage, but not as centerpieces in garden areas. If you’re going to add these blooms, better situate them in areas that are not always maintained, like in the side bushes or flower boxes by the window sill. This way, they can accentuate the said areas without the need of extra effort.
2. Plastic flowers suit best in less colorful gardens. Are you starting to get bored of your Zen garden? Then you may add a vine of orchids or ivies to breathe in a new shade in the area. You can use plastic variants in this case though, as these blooms do not easily wilt and are able to maintain the beauty of the garden for a longer period of time.
3. Choose flowers that match your garden’s other elements. You cannot always put any kind of plastic flower in your garden. Perhaps you may want to see which blooms would bring out the real beauty of your green patch first, as by using the right flowers, your garden always will look fashionable and never out of style.
