But just because it's low-maintenance it doesn't mean it's no-maintenance, and even the best hedging needs a clean now and again. Here's how to tackle your spring-cleaning, whether you have a green wall or a roadside hedge.

Spruce Up Your Indoor Artificial Greenery

You'll need a feather duster, microfibre cloths and two spray bottles - one filled with a solution of water and dishwashing liquid and the other filled with water.

First dust your greenery, paying particular attention to any spiders' webs. For more stubborn stains, spray a microfiber cloth with the dishwashing liquid solution and gently wipe your artificial boxwood hedging panels. You're aiming to dislodge any stubborn stains.

Now gently mist away the soap with clean water and wipe the foliage dry with another microfibre cloth. Your green walls and topiary should look as good as new.

Tackle Your Outdoor Hedging

Cleaning outdoor hedging is much easier, even though your hedges can pick up plenty of dirt and dust - particularly if they're next to a busy road.

Now get a garden hose and fit a spray nozzle of the type you use for watering lawns and flowers. Don't be tempted to use a pressure washer, as you can end up blasting away leaves and damaging your hedges.

Use a good strong jet that will dislodge dirt and debris easily without damaging your artificial hedging, and get spraying. Make sure you pay equal attention to the undersides of the foliage and that you spray right into the heart of your hedging to give a really thorough clean.

Finally, shake your hedges to remove excess water, and then leave to dry naturally. Obviously, this is a job best done on a warm day, but you could also stand them in a conservatory or a covered veranda if the weather isn't wonderful.
