Won't They Look Fake?

One of the big concerns people have is that artificial boxwood hedging will look fake and will therefore damage the look of an outdoor space rather than enhance it. However, this is simply untrue. In many ways, synthetic bushes and hedges achieved visual realism before fake grass, and it is very hard to tell them apart from the real thing even with a close inspection.

When somebody does start to suspect they are fake, it is not uncommon for discussions to ensue about whether this is really the case, with people taking both sides and everybody impressed by how convincing they are if they are fake.

Aren't They Expensive?

Another concern a lot of people have is that installing artificial boxwood hedges will be more expensive than going natural. While it is true that initial costs can be higher, artificial hedging will often prove more cost-effective over time.

Real hedges require a lot of skilled professional maintenance to keep them looking good. This requires at least an investment of time and effort, and most likely will call for a paid professional to be repeatedly called in.

Artificial hedges, on the other hand, will stay looking consistently at their best without the need for such maintenance and without any additional costs. In other words, they might be more expensive to start with, but this will soon balance out.
