Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size & look great! I have two large zinc containers on my front porch that I’d been searching for extra large boxwood style planter fillers for a while; finally, I came across these from Ballard and they fit the bill perfectly! While not the same “look” as preserved boxwoods, they are still lovely and look great on my porch and in the planters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks real! I’ve had these a few months and they look great. We never use the front door, so planted flowers always get forgotten and die. These will look great all year round!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look I ordered 2 of the medium size faux boxwood balls for my planters. Love these! The yard is planted with boxwoods, so these fit right in with none of the effort! They are really pretty, and very well made. There are three "hooks" on the bottom of each to secure into the dirt in my planters. I used lawn stakes to secure them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from realistic looking I had been trying to keep some miniature boxwoods alive through the fall but would forget to water them. I ordered these and think they are wonderful. They fill the pot perfectly and there are three small round attachments to secure boxwood to the planter dirt. I used metal shish ka bob (sp) sticks and they are secure in the pot. Everyone has to touch them to see if they are fake. Very happy with them and makes front entrance look much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic I have purchased many faux boxwood balls and these are without a doubt the most beautiful and realistic of them all I have two of the largest ones that even a professional landscaper had to touch them because he did not believe that they were fake. Ballard Design has the best faux boxwood balls. No need to shop other places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOXWOODS I am so very pleased with your lovely Box woods! No one realizes that they are NOT REAL! I do not have to water Or trim them. I should have done this long ago, especially when I think of the $$$s I have spent on the real ones!
Date published: 2018-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very realistic. Placed the faux boxwood in urns. Love the look. They are in very close proximity to my real in ground boxwood. Can't tell the difference between the real and faux.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauclair Planter, faux boxwood Have just purchased the Beauclair Planter and faux boxwood. Will use outdoors. Looking for ideas of how to anchor and planter and the boxwood inside the planter, any tips will be greatly appreciated. Not able to get answers when placing the order today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described Very happy with this purchase. A long cold winter killed everything I tried to grow in planters on my covered porch. Perfect option until warm weather is here, just hope the UV protection lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I bought the medium boxwood and also bought the planter from Ballard. We are very happy. They're realistic looking enough to sit right next to my front door!
Date published: 2018-03-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly realistic I bought two of these faux boxwood fillers and put them in pots I already owned. They flank a bench on my front walk. They look exactly like the boxwoods in my landscaping! In fact, friends arrived just after I finished placing them. I told them I was worn out from planting them - they believed me and thought they were real! A landscaper who was working next door reminded me to water them. I told him they were fake and he came over to inspect them. He couldn't believe it either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks real Very pleased with the medium size faux boxwood. It's full, appears real, and fits perfectly in the my urn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks real, bing bang boom! So easy. These boxwoods look beautiful in the Nantucket style planters we purchased. And I don't have to water them, they won't fade, and they look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Medium boxwoods People that come to the door think the boxwoods are real. I love them no watering.
Date published: 2017-07-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with Purchase I purchased the large size to replace topiaries in two planters on my front porch. Sun is an issue with live plants so I now opt for faux and these look real. The size is perfect and the quality is very good. My porch looks complete with these!
Date published: 2017-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! Looks just like the boxwoods in our garden. We have a great outlet in Cincinnati. They called me to say they had some and I was amazed at the quality . Wish I could post a picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks real, you just have to touch to believe! I have struggled to find the best plants to frame my front door. Love ferns, but they always seems to burn in the sun, especially if we travel for a long weekend. The search is over! I absolutely adore these Faux Boxwood Fillers! They look so real, you just have to touch to believe they aren't. They are placed atop our regal planters, with just a hint of burlap showing. I've had them for a while now, and I'm still getting compliments!
Date published: 2017-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely I have a difficult time keeping plants alive on my front door step due to harsh sun and shade conditions. I've tried just about every plant that friends and gardeners have recommended. So when I saw these, I thought - yes! This is the solution! lol :) They look lovely in the urns on my front step. The leaves are good quality and although if you look close you can tell they are fake, almost no one does when coming in through the front door. With a small flower wreath on the door, it's a classic look with no maintenance. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fake Boxwood Very realistic and large size. Perfect for outdoor planters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faux Boxwood Planter Filler I was so pleased with these that after receiving them (2) and all the compliments I received from neighbors, friends and even strangers that I want ahead and purchased two additional faux fillers. As far as maintaining their perfect shape, they just think we are very meticulous! (wink) A great buy, no regrets. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic This boxwood is so real looking! It looked so good in our pot I instantly bought another.
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is beautiful. My neighbors think it's real. Love it. The only drawback is the fact that the bush keeps its perfect shape. That is the only way you can tell if it's real or not. Even touching it is not a definite give away. It's beautiful

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant Entry I purchased the 18" spheres for 2 concrete urns at my front door. They look realistic and never need water. They sit in the urns at my top step and I have colorful impatiens in pots cascading down the the steps beneath them and lining my front walk. The metal stakes that were included secured into my urns with little effort. My only disappointment is that they now have UV protection and have an expected 10 year life, and it appears that the 2 that I purchased do not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Faux Boxwood Planter Filler achieves my goal They work well for my front porch planters to replace live plants during the summer heat and we are traveling. From the street they look fine. As one gets closer, it is obvious they are more plastic-like than natural looking. The leaves also seem to be fading in color from the direct sunlight. Overall these help meet my goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good size and quality Bought theses for two pots on my cabana! Look perfect!
