Topiary Trees: Where to Find a Decorative Tree
If you’re in search of a decorative tree for your home or office, there are plenty of options to choose from. One such option is an artificial topiary tree which can be found at many local nurseries and garden centers. Artificial topiary trees come in various shapes and sizes with prices ranging from $10-$50 depending on the size and quality you want. When choosing a fake topiary tree, it’s important to keep these things in mind: height, width, durability, price point and aesthetics.
Height is the most important thing to consider when picking an artificial topiary tree. While you can easily place a small two foot tall plant in the corner of any room, if you want your decorative tree to be seen or placed in the center of your space then it needs to be at least three feet tall (three feet is considered average). When shopping around for fake trees ask yourself how many people will see them and what kind of décor they’ll go with; these factors will help determine size.
Width is second on this list because unlike height, width cannot vary too much depending on where you plan on placing your decorative tree. If possible try taking measurements of the area where you intend to put your new faux shrub so that there’s no chance it won’t fit in its designated spot. Also consider how much room you’ll want to walk around the tree and for larger spaces, multiple trees can be used in a row or clustered together like a private forest! Finally, fake topiary trees come in various widths which range from 18-36 inches wide. While this may not seem like that big of an increase on paper it’s definitely something worth considering depending on your space limitations and desired aesthetic.
Price point is last because price isn’t always indicative of quality; there are plenty of affordable high quality decorative trees out there so don’t necessarily go with what seems cheapest at first glance. Price also varies based upon size so if possible try getting dimensions before shopping so you know exactly what kind of budget you’re working with. However, if you can’t get dimensions beforehand then that’s okay too because most trees (especially the smaller ones) only vary in price by a few dollars at most; an affordable fake topiary tree is definitely possible!
Aesthetics is also important when choosing artificial plants and while this varies from person to person, here are some general guidelines: round and full leaves tend to give off more of a traditional look whereas sharp angular designs may be better suited for modern settings; there really isn’t any wrong choice though so pick what speaks to your home’s decor best.
