Privacy is an issue in Beverly Hills, and all of the exclusive areas in Los Angeles, and artificial privacy hedges are trending in the area. As you drive around Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, or Brentwood you will see fantastic live hedges at many of the properties. These hedges serve as privacy walls, wind breaks, and they make a statement of exclusivity, and wealth.
Unfortunately, these massive live hedges require a tremendous amount of maintenance, water, and painstaking care. The landscaping and water bills for these properties amount to more than most people make in a year, and with the California drought, water restrictions are still in place. An army of gardeners come in and out of the properties every week and that poses other liability, privacy, and security risks.
Residents of Beverly Hills are turning to artificial privacy hedges to block out unsightly views, and keep nosy people from looking in. Double Decker Star Tours busses drive up and down Sunset Boulevard night and day full of tourists hoping for a celebrity sighting. They snap pictures as they drive through exclusive neighborhoods, much to the chagrin of local residents.

How amazing have the cool weather and rainy forecasts been? We think it’s the perfect way to kick off the summer months, especially when they’re know for being so dry and hazardous for fires. The moisture comes at a time of critical drought and widespread lack of rainfall. Californians all throughout the state are rejoicing in the recent downpours.

California is a state experiencing rapid growth and it is important to retain a sense of seclusion. Even the most outgoing of Californians need some time to unwind and relax without feeling like they are visible to anyone who cares to look.
This is especially difficult in a state with as much sunshine and beautiful weather as California. Here at Geranium Street USA, we saw the potential of using artificial trees and flowers as privacy screens. This became especially obvious when we were contacted by several concerned pool owners.

We constructed a privacy screens from artificial trees and ivy rolls and restored their sense of privacy.
