Non-natural greenery is a very practical solution due to its easy installation. And it is also versatile, low-maintenance, and highly durable. But the best of all is the elegance, beauty, feeling of tranquility, warmth, and harmony that it transfers to any room. In addition, it does not interfere with the different styles of furniture: classic, contemporary, sober, rustic, exotic, etc., because there are many varieties to choose from according to the taste and needs of each place, as well as the opportunity to continually renew them. The various models of artificial greenery transform a dull gray place to life and color at low cost and little work.

How to install greenery or artificial ivy
- It can be put from just one on a wall as a painting. In that case, it can be stapled directly to the frame and nailed or secured to the wall.
- If they are several panels of the same model or combined, they are joined like a puzzle and joined with the plastic fasteners that are incorporated from the back.
- If the panels are to be placed on concrete or metal surfaces, a wooden or plastic frame is often used and installed first where they can be stapled or tied with plastic fasteners.
- Now yes, the completely assembled plant cover fixed to the base can be glued to the desired surface with nails, screws, or staples.
