50+ Faux Plants for Front Porch

Over the years I’ve slowly let go of the “do it all” mentality.

Because, turns out, I really can’t do it all.

So rather than throw in the towel on potted outdoor plants for my front porch altogether, I decided to mix faux plants in with real plants. This cuts down on my watering and maintenance time.

Plus, it lets me use the same faux plants year after year, which saves on the budget long term.

When we had our lake cottage, I used faux plants for my window boxes as well! Since we weren’t there regularly, I needed something that would look beautiful without my attention.

Plus, faux topiaries are the absolute easiest way to flank a front door! I use evergreens to maintain green year round. Boxwood in the spring and summer and cedar in the fall and winter.
