Frequently Asked Questions About Faux Topiary Balls
You likely have questions about artificial topiary balls. Here are answers to a few of our most commonly asked questions from customers like you.
Can I Put My Faux Topiary Balls Outside?
We do sell artificial topiary balls that are created specifically to be displayed outside. An outdoor topiary can be used outside year-round without the risk of being eaten by pesky wildlife. To know if a faux topiary ball is safe for outdoor use, look for these terms in the product description:
Outdoor and/or Water Resistant: Won't absorb water, but will fade with exposure to direct sunlight.
UV-Resistant: Resists fading for a minimum of one year.
UV-Proof: Will resist fading for a minimum of five years, and can stand up to wind, rain, ice and snow.
How Do I Care for My Artificial Topiary Balls?
Ball topiaries may have lots of nooks and crannies, but are surprisingly easy to clean. Just dust your faux topiary balls the same way you dust your home or office. If needed, most topiary balls can also be wiped with a damp cloth.
Several times a year you'll want to do a more thorough cleaning. After dusting, test one of the leaves — remove one leaf from an inconspicuous portion of your faux topiary ball, rinse it with tap water, then shake off the excess water. After a few minutes, check the leaf to see if it's clean and the shine has returned. If so, it's time for a bath.
If the artificial topiary balls are in a pot, cover the pot and filler with plastic to protect them from the water. Place your ball topiaries near a water hose on a clean surface. Use the spray nozzle on your hose and gently spray your plant. Shake the topiary balls lightly to remove most of the water, and allow it to air dry. After these simple steps, your faux topiary ball will be good as new!
