Succulents, Onion Grasses and Green Containers

Designers are Going Wild over our Faux Succulents!

Some replicated artificial plants simply shine above the rest. Our faux succulents look so close to the real thing you won’t be able to resist their convenience. We offer such a broad selection of types, colors and sizes of artificial succulents making it enjoyable to create custom designs — because you just can’t go wrong. Designers love all the possibilities our selection brings to their “Plantscaping” projects.

Artificial succulents are incredibly versatile:

  • Select a sleek, single floor plant or planting such as a single artificial Sanseveria plant combined with larger, multiple plantings of silk snake plants.

  • Mix and match a variety of artificial succulent styles and colors for a large floor planting, a custom base planting of a large tree, or tabletop arrangement.

  • Create a unique, stunning faux succulent wall art piece – or a grouping of framed succulents.

  • Include some faux succulents in your custom orchid or grass planting.

ARTIFICIAL ONION GRASSES

Our Artificial Onion and Mountain Grasses Could Fool Mother Nature!

When you walk up to our new onion grass bushes, you would absolutely think they were real, even to the touch! Artificial grasses are so popular due to their versatility and life-like appearance. They come in a variety of sizes, ranging from
3ft. to 6ft. tall and work well planted as a sleek contemporary floor plant that will fit neatly in most any area of room. They will also work equally as well used in a grand, group-planting with a large complementary planter.

Shown here is an example of a large planting, combining all four heights of onion grasses, recently installed in three focal planters at the Destiny USA shopping complex in Syracuse, NY. The bases of these planters were originally filled solely with decorative rocks. The project manager, Jim Bold of Bold Associates, wanted to maintain a very contemporary, clean design – but determined that greenery was required to bring balance to the design. They were thrilled with this final touch!

Make Be-Leaves offers additional types of artificial grasses:

  • Short, manicured wheat grass
  • Slightly taller vanilla grass
  • 18” tall mountain grass

All of these grasses can be designed as a table top arrangement, custom base planting for trees, floor plants or plantings for large planters. Click for Gallery view.


CONTAINERS ARE GOING GREEN AND YOUR SELECTION IS BETTER THAN EVER!

So Many Styles…So Many Finishes...So Many Sizes…

Decorative planters are a critical component in completing the overall look of a silk floor plant, custom artificial tree, or a unique tabletop arrangement. Designers know that the style and finish should coordinate with and complement the overall design of the space.

Make Be-Leaves offers a variety of great-looking, lightweight planters, including ECO-fiberglass containers with 30% less fossil fuel content than normal fiberglass products, and recycled & sustainable LEED planters. Choose from our wide variety of styles and finish options for interior “plantscaping” – or add the Double-Tough exterior clear coat for durable exterior planters.

ECO-fiberglass Earth Wall Collection – This is a sleek, contemporary line of square, tall square and rectangular shaped planters – using a gunmetal finish. The 24” and 30” squar. Earth Wall planters are perfect for custom Preserved Palms. These range from 13-20 ft. tall with base plantings of mixed grasses and black river rocks. They are available with optional recessed casters (as shown here) and are a great feature for ease in moving planters for cleaning or relocation.

The Tall Square Earth Wall Planters – these add a more dramatic “lift” to an artificial floor plant – and set as a grouping of two or three work well to break up the space along a long corridor or end wall.

Solid Bamboo Planter – Add a tall square styled planter inspiring a peaceful organic, Zen look. These bamboo planters are also available in a tapered square; both styles are available in four different sizes.

European Tall Square – This works equally well with a large, low agave succulent - as shown, a medium height plant or create a dramatic look with a large 8-10 ft. custom tree.

Desert Urn – This adds a stylized flair - looks great with low or tall palms, or with medium height plants, as shown here with the 4 ft. onion grasses.
