The iron mesh are at around 5.3 pounds (2.4kg) per square meter.

Can you explain problems related to UV and color-fading?

All our artificial hedges are made of fresh LDPE (low-density polyethylene), added with UV-protected additives during the manufacturing process. So the artificial hedge wall planters can be used outside for a long time. How will outdoor artificial hedges perform exposed to full sunlight? Check out an ultimate guide to artificial outdoor plants with UV resistance. Furthermore, all our hedges and plants have passed the UV test and can be kept well under outdoor sunlight. If there’s a need, we can send the UV protection test report and no heavy metal certificate. Also if it’s necessary, we will provide samples for your testing.

Color-fading is an inevitable issue after years of sun exposure because ultraviolet light must have a great impact on plastic products, leading to aging of plastic materials. Though the color of the fence definitely has a little change, we ensure the change is under control and will not affect normal use.

Can the hedge be removed from the planter?
