Once clipped together, the artificial foliage measures 100cm x 100cm : it is therefore very easy to calculate the number of sheets that will be useful for the completion of your layout. To measure the size of your project, multiply the height of your surface to be covered by its length and you will obtain the number of sheets needed.

Which support to use for an artificial plant wall ?
Adapt your installation methodology according to the chosen support (wooden wall, stone, wire mesh structure...). The structure of Exelgreen artificial walls has been designed to be installed indoors or outdoors. If you are planning to install your artificial wall on a fence or a grid, use clamps or cable clamps for a solid and quick installation. The accessories are usually sold with your green wall.
When installing on an interior wall, use appropriate screws to avoid damaging the surface as you would have done for example to hang a picture in your living room. The number of fasteners should be adapted according to the weight of the wall, the model can vary from 3 to 5 kg per square meter.
For surfaces requiring a more resistant fixing such as a stone wall, we recommend you use adapted nails and hammer the plates to the wall to fix them with a small hammer.
Artificial hedges can be used for many reasons such as :
- Decorate and create an authentic, trendy and unique living space
- Protect your privacy from prying eyes
- Improve the appearance of small spaces such as garden sheds
- Sublimate and green your company for the well-being of your employees and customers
How to install my artificial plant wall ?
First, to hang your artificial foliage, start by clipping the plates together to form a square.
