Go Green Using an Artificial Cactus Go Green Using an Artificial Cactus

An artificial cactus can make an ideal addition to your garden when you do not want to use too much water. They will allow you to keep the garden looking green with a limited amount of maintenance required.

Plan

Start by planning how you want the garden to look so that you can plot where specific plants will go. If you also intend to use real plants, decide on the number and type. This will help you determine the effect that they will have on the environment, for example, how much watering they will need. At this stage, you can also inspect the condition of the soil to determine where an artificial cactus might be beneficial.  

Purchase

The planning stage will have given you the opportunity to decide how many artificial cactus plants you need. You will find that there are a range of different sizes available so that you can find examples to suit the garden and surrounding plants.

Landscape  

Commence the landscaping of the garden by initially sowing any real plants that you may be using. Reserve the artificial cactus plants for areas that have a poor water supply or where the soil is in such poor condition that real plants will only strip what little nutrients remain.
