Geranium Street Floral installed all of the artificial boxwood hedge at the new Savoie restaurant in the thriving Eastlake neighborhood of San Diego. Savoie is an Italian/French fusion restaurant located in the OtayRanchTownCenter directly across the from the AMC theater. People are talking about the unique décor inside the restaurant, likening it to something they would see in Las Vegas or New York.
I must admit I was impressed, and I haven’t even seen many restaurants in Los Angeles that were as uniquely decorated. Part of the unique and exciting interior décor has to do with the artificial boxwood hedge on the walls, behind the bar, and used as trim in many areas of the restaurant. This combined with other artificial plants, and real plants.
The exterior of the restaurant is adorned with California succulent plants that are water wise and low maintenance. The patio is complete with fire pits and long party tables. Inside the dining area they have several artificial moss balls hanging from the ceiling. The bar is trimmed with artificial boxwood hedge, as are several walls and the men’s restroom. Both of the restrooms are uniquely decorated and are a must see when visiting the restaurant.
Geranium Street has provided artificial plants and hedge for many restaurants. The hedge adds a bit of color and texture to otherwise bare walls. The result is something fresh and vibrant. Guests may not be able to put their finger on what the difference, but subconsciously it rates as hip and classy. Savoie in Chula Vista is a great example of this.
Geranium Street also provided artificial boxwood hedge for two restaurants in PacificBeach, Truckstop and Avenue. Both bars at Avenue are trimmed with artificial boxwood hedge and they also have artificial ivy on the patio from Geranium Street Floral. Truckstop has a center service island that is decorated with artificial boxwood hedge. Both restaurants deserve a closer look when in the area.

A whole new industry has cropped up around artificial plants, and artificial hedge walls. Artificial hedge walls are being used for large events as barriers, and backdrops, and they are used on movie and television sets for the same reason. “Plantscapers” are hired to assist interior and exterior designers.
Geranium Street Floral has recently been involved in several exciting projects throughout California, in Las Vegas, and Canada. The company did two projects in the San Francisco area. One project involved installing artificial boxwood hedge walls around the pool, patio, and tennis court area of an architect’s house in San Mateo. They also created an artificial hedge privacy wall on a rooftop balcony in Pacific Heights.
Interior designers and architects are also using artificial hedge walls in their commercial designs. Green walls add a lot of color and texture to bland office lobbies, hotel entrances and retail spaces. Artificial hedge walls look very attractive in salons, clothing boutiques, and of course, restaurants.
Now, Geranium Street has designed a new product called the hybrid living wall. The hybrid living wall uses artificial boxwood hedge with living California succulent plants and decorative stone. The hybrid living wall is sure to garner much attention as this green fad continues throughout North America.
Living walls, also known as vertical gardens are showing up at exclusive properties in Beverly Hills, Manhattan, Las Vegas, Palm Beach, and Sedona, Arizona. A whole new industry has sprung up to create living walls and vertical gardens, and then maintain them. Living walls are not for people or companies on tight budgets. They cost thousands of dollars to create and maintain.
Geranium Street Floral works with top architects and designers who are trail blazers in the interior and exterior design world. The days of flat concrete or wood walls are over. This is the era of “green” and green walls are the big new thing. Geranium Street has created artificial hedge walls at several commercial properties and private residences.
Geranium Street Floral has recognized the importance and popularity of living walls and has in response, created the Hybrid Living Wall. The hybrid living wall uses artificial plants, real rocks, and live succulent plants. The hybrid living wall requires no complex watering system, as succulent plants can survive with the moisture of the air alone.
The hybrid living wall can be attached to existing walls, or built as its own free standing wall. This is perfect for condo balconies, high rise balconies, pool areas, or patios. The hybrid living wall can also be used to infuse life into boring interiors of restaurants, retail spaces, or office buildings.
Hybrid living walls are surely going to be a hit in 2014. Real living walls look fantastic and create a lot of buzz, but are usually not cost effective or practical for most situations. Hybrid living walls are cost effective, and are practical because they are virtually maintenance free. Geranium Street Floral wants to custom design a hybrid living wall for you.
A lady called into Geranium Street Floral and explained that she had a rooftop balcony that she had wanted to do something with for years. She had found our site online and was impressed by the pictures of artificial boxwood hedge. The balcony was off of the master bedroom on the third floor of her Victorian era home in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. She was considering an artificial hedge privacy wall for the balcony.
After much consultation, and a visit to her property to take measurements, the team at Geranium Street Floral custom designed an Artificial Boxwood Hedge privacy wall for the lady’s roof top balcony. Designers at Geranium Street came up with a plan to build all of the pieces of the privacy wall, so it could easily be transported and installed on the property with as little trouble as possible.
Geranium Street Floral was already doing another big job in San Francisco, so they scheduled the Pacific Heights project at the same time. The privacy wall was to be six feet high on two sides, and three feet on one side, allowing a spectacular view of downtown San Francisco. On the front side, the privacy hedge graduated from six feet down to three feet.
It took three days to install, and the hardest part was transporting all of the pieces up to the roof. Pacific Heights is a historic neighborhood in San Francisco, and the homes there were mostly built in the 1870’s. Properties that old require an extra amount of delicate care, and the pros from Geranium Street Floral were very aware of that. In the end, the project came out fantastic, and the lady and her husband were very happy.
Geranium Street Floral has designed artificial hedges for various types of properties, from Palm Springs, to Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and many areas in between. They have also sold artificial boxwood hedge to people all over the country. Artificial hedge is becoming popular to make privacy walls, green walls inside commercial buildings and houses, and for temporary walls at events and construction sites.
